Hi, i did review your concern
generally erythromycin and short term ibuprofen do not change any of the urine tests done commonly. However, you can let them know that you have taken them so any abnormality is to be met with caution or a repeat after 4-5 days to confirm drug independent abnormality.
I hope this helps
Wish you a very healthy life ahead.
