Bright yellow urine after taking Phenazopyridine and nitrofurantoin. Due to medication?

Hello, I just started taking two medications to treat my bladder infection . They are called: phenazopyridine 200 mg and nitrofurantoin mono-mcr 100 mg. Ive been experiencing a huge difference in color of my urine. it almost looks as if there is blood in it, and its very bright. Like a neon yellow or even like a yellow dye color. Could it be these medications causing it? Ive had infections many times and its never caused this type of color in my urine. Thanks

Hi Boyer,
Thanks for writing in to Healthcare Magic!
Yes, Phenazopyridin colors the urine deep orange and it is not due to infection.
You should continue the treatment, urine color would be restored once you stop these medicines at the end of recovery.
If you have any further query please let me know I would try to answer it for you.
Wish you a great health!
