Brief Answer:
Several causes for orange urine.

Detailed Answer:
Hello Pplseans and welcome to HCM.
As an Urologist, i advise you, that orange urine discoloration has several causes.
1. Liver and bile duct conditions.
2. Drugs causing reddish orange discoloration,like Rifampicin for tuberculosis, and Phenazopyridine, used with antibiotics in urinary infections, etc.
3. Dehydration. You should drink more than 8-10 glasses fluids daily.
4. Get examined by a specialist and carry out following tests:
(a) urine routine and culture, urine for bile pigments.
(b) blood routine, sugar,HbA1C, LFT, and creatinine.
(c)Chest X-ray.
According to the reports, your doctor should be able to advise treatment.

Taking o/c azo, which is like pyridium, not as strong. Waiting to see a urologist, appointment in 2 weeks. Now I have developed leg cramps when I try to sleep.
