So I know not everyone is a doctor here but since you might have experienced the same situation as I am, I have few questions.


So the vitamins I'm taking are these


GNC Women's Ultra Mega® Energy and Metabolism


And ever since I started taking my urine is bright bright yellow. Considering I drink more than 2 L of water everyday I'm very concerned it might be affecting my health.


Any tips/suggestions are very welcome since I can't really afford seeing a doctor these weeks.

Does this help? Straight from the Internet LoL

If you recently started taking a daily multivitamin, you may be alarmed or at least surprised to find that your urine is bright neon yellow when you use the bathroom, especially if you’ve heard that you should drink water until your urine is pale yellow or almost clear.

Do not be alarmed, this is a harmless side effect of taking a multivitamin, and simply means you are eliminating excess vitamins.

Although the color of your urine may show that your body is absorbing and eliminating nutrients, it is not necessarily an indication of the efficacy of a vitamin product.

Certain vitamins (such as vitamin C or riboflavin) may cause a change in the color of urine, and water soluble vitamins are flushed from your body on a daily basis because your body doesn’t store them. If you’re concerned about the bright color of your urine, talk to your doctor.

It is harmless.. it also had to do with the quality of the vitamin. GNC vitamins are really not the highest and have a tendency to change urine color because the body is not absorbing them completely. If you were to look closely, you might find some of the pill still whole (although a bit smaller) in your poo.
