Could taking Macrobid cause discoloration in urine?

Is there a correlation between severity of UTI and the shade of orange of urine when on antibiotics such as Macrobid? I am on my third day of macrobid and have little discoloration of the urine but the first two days it was bright orange. Just wondering if there is a relationship there?

As the macrobid has urinary excretion mechanics, the change of urine color is part of normal process. Do not panic for the same, rather just keep on consuming plenty of liquids for fast recovery.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
