It is normal for the urine to change color when taking OTC Hydrochloride (Oxytetracycline). Just continue medication as prescribed. Besides, should take cranberry supplement to ease the symptoms plus increase fluids and/or uva-ursi tea intake. After finishing this medication, wait for 3 days, then, repeat urine analysis and urine culture and sensitivity testing to see if infection is there again.

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