    Question Help!!! My pee stinks!!!

    Okay, here goes.....I have had a horrible odor to my urine for a while now, and it is absolutely terrible first thing in the morning! This is my third month of phen and I just want to know if anyone else has experienced this before I start assuming that I have some kind of crazy kidney issues!!!!!

    Do you have any of these symptoms with it?

    Symptoms

    It's possible to have a urinary tract infection without symptoms, but most people will also have problems such as:

    Pain (stinging or burning) on passing urine
    Constant feeling of needing to pass urine
    Difficulty starting to pass urine
    Fever
    Generally feeling unwell, nauseous


    The explanation for strong-smelling, dark urine could simply be that you're not drinking enough fluid and your urine is very concentrated. But if you have any of these symptoms, or are still worried, get it checked by your doctor.

    It could also be something you are eating or drinking as well as any medications or supplements you are taking. Do you have any other symptoms? Does it happen any other time than your first pee of the day? I would think a yeast infection may cause the smell, too.

    OMG I posted the exact same thing a few weeks ago! No one answered so I figured no one else had the same issue. I have been to the Dr. no infection of any kind, just stinky pee. I'm starting to get used to it but how strange. Now that I know there is another stinker out there maybe we can just chalk it up to Phen side affects.

    Oh wow, maybe I will try more fluids first, and go from there. I have had urinary tract inections before and this isnt at all similar....no pain, urge to go, etc. I don't have a yeast infection that I am aware of and believe me I was well aware of the last one....lol My urine just has a really strong smell to it. No other side effects at all really. Hmmm, I think I will try some gatorade along side my water and see if that helps any.

    Thanks guys and I will let you know if there is any changes, hopefully for the better that is!

    The common thing that all of you have....other than the high odor in your urine is that you are all in the 140lbs weight range.

    I wonder if Phen affects people who are at a lower weight differently than it does people who are at a higher weight?

    My pee smells very strong as well. It smells like cheerios. I know this sounds odd....but I have had my bf smell it and he agrees. It doesn't smell gross...just potent and like cheerios. It is a little yellower (looks more concentrated) than normal pee, but I know this happens when taking multi-vitamins. I know I don't have a UTI, bladder infection, yeast infectionetc. as I was checked recently at my annual womanly exam. I think that drinking more water may be a remedy. I just wanted to hear some more info from other people out there that my be experiencing the same thing.

    Anyone...anyone at all have cheerio flavored pee?

    Thanks!!

    Lightbulb I have stinky pee too!!

    Just wanted to post a note to say that the same thing has happened to me. i have been taking phen for about 3 months. My urine started having this terrible strong odor about 3 weeks ago. I don't have any other symtoms with it....no burning, no iching, no discharge and no pain when urinating. I too believe it is associated with the phen because this is the only change I've made in my life. I don't believe that it is from not drinking enough water because I have NEVER been a water drinker and this has never happened before. I don't know why but I just can't stand to drink just plain water ....so I get most of my water from tea or lemonaide. But being as how I've done that my whole life and have never had stinky pee, I don't think that is the issue.....unless combining the taking of phen with not drinking enough water could cause it. Anyway i was glad to see that i was not the only one. I googled the problem and this is the only sight I found with people having the same problem. I did find one site where a man was having trouble urinating, even thou he is not female I wonder if that might be related.

    phen helps remove toxins from our body, drinking lots of water will keep the sodium and toxins out on a regular basis. I'm not positive but it may be the fact that your not drinking enough water.

    Default it happened to me too

    I had the same problem...and i found that it was too much caffiene not enough water. i cut back on tea and coffee and drank more water (yuk), but the problem went away. also, my dr said low potassium, which is a problem with phen...like aly said, it flushes out toxins...and in turn, it also flushes out vitamins and minerals. You should be taking a multi anyway hope this helps!

    Exclamation My input about urine odor

    Any type of medication, even vitamins usually give a strong odor when urinating,

    the only thing I notice to help eliminate that problem, is increasing your water

    intake, thus keeping your system flushed. Give that a try.

    I agree. I have the same problem if I don't drink enough water. Unless you have some of the symptoms of a UTI then just try increasing your water. If that doesn't improve things then you may want to ask your dr. Good luck!!

    Default Dehydrated!

    I have been taking Phen off and on for about a year now. As long as I am drinking alot of water my urine is clear. When I get slack about drinking my water my urine smells horrible and is yellow (dehydration). I dont think its because of the phen its just that you need to increase your water intake. Water is key to weight loss with or without phen, but I have definately seen better results taking Phen and drinking lots of water. I try to drink 100oz a day.

    Just to keep your urinary tract in optimal condition, add a glass of cranberry juice on occasion, it helps keep UTI's down.

    I have been on Phen (again) for about 3 months. I have noticed a strong oder especially in the morning and my pee is very golden yellow. I am glad to see that I am not the only one with this problem. I don't feel I have an infection. I think it is probably because I am not drinking enough water.

    My pee smells like roses!

    J/k.. idk just thought i'd throw that in there.

    I think most peoples pee stinks, but if you are in ketosis (where your body is using fat as fuel) your pee can be smellier than usual.. also, you might have bad breath too. You can get ketone checking strips from the drugstore to see if youre in ketosis.. all you do is pee on them and then see if they change color.. if they do, you are in ketosis. Its a good thing, bcz it means that your body is burning fat. But if the strip turns too dark, that indicates a high level of ketones which can be damaging to your kidneys.. so then just drink more water and see if the concentration level goes down.

    Default Smelly Urine

    Thank you all for your suggestions and ideas. I really was getting worried. I am also very sick and was worried I had a major infection. I am striving to drink more water.
    Thanks!
