Lansoprazole And Bright Yellow Urine

capercaillie3 Says:

Hi there. I wonder if someone could ease my fears.
I started taking lansoprazole two weeks ago. It's a fairly small dose of 30mg once a day. Although it's keeping the dreadful reflux in check, today my urine is literally fluorescent yellow...and I'm terrified!!
I dont take supplements, or vitamins, I drink an adequate amount of water each day, but I do take some other prescribed medications for high blood pressure. These are Losartan, Tildiem, Bendroflumethiazide, and Ramipril.
I feel perfectly well...apart from the panic over the colour of my pee :( I really hope someone can end my fears

Hello, Capercaillie3! How are you?

I didn't find it listed as a side effect for the Lansoprazole, but many blood pressure medications can cause that, as reported by the FDA. They can also cause increased urination, especially the Bendroflumethiziade, since it is used to remove fluid from the body, thus even if you're taking in what you feel is an adequate amount of water, you may not be taking in enough and could be ending up dehydrated.

I don't think it's a reason to panic, because a change in urine color can also be caused by something new that you ate or drank over the past few days.

However, it won't hurt to have it checked out to be sure.

Is there anything else I can help with?

Thank you for taking the time to reply...I'm very grateful.
In truth, I believe it was something that I ate, because the colour is almost back to normal.
I'm sorry for causing alarm, but I must confess, I was beyond scared.
Thank you once again :)
