first of all it like a universal truth that your urine will be pink orange coloured urine that is because the rifampicin in macox it 100 % normal to have changed urine colour ...either that colour will dissapear in three months or ull continue to have this colour till 6-9 months of treatment
advice:continue your att and dont worry about your urine
take care

General & Family Physician Dr. S. Jegadeesan's  Response
Any medication after it's action has to be excreted. One way of excretion is thr'o urine.
The drug you are taking contains RIFAMYCIN - which is the cause for the high colored urine.
It is 100% nothing to worry. After you complete the course of RIFAMYCIN you will be totally alright.
Follow dr's advice regarding food habits, along with medicines + vitamines like B6
best wishes
