Do Azathioprine, Pyridostigmine, Bromide and Prednisone cause cloudy urination?

Can you have a cloudy urine sample because of myasthenia gravis medications, i.e. Azathioprine, Pyridostigmine Bromide and Prednisone? I have been treated for bladder cancer the past 15 months with good results and have just finished taking the antibiotic Cephalexin. Thanks, William A. Gustafson, Jr., Ph.D.

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Cloudy urine may indicate the presence of mucus, pus, or blood. Alternatively it can be due to sediment that forms when some of the constituents of urine, such as phosphates, form tiny crystals.
If you have no symptoms, then the cloudiness may be due to the presence of normal vaginal mucus. It would be a good idea to report what you’ve noticed to your GP, and to arrange for a sample to be sent to the laboratory for analysis. Any blood, pus, crystals, or infection will be reported. If you have symptoms of thrush such as itching, soreness, irritation, or a thick white discharge, then it would be wise to get treatment from your GP. If your urine test is reported as normal there is no need to worry. Drinking plenty of water will reduce your chances of having problems with urine infections or cystitis in the future.

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