I dunno if Peg/Riba makes your urine darker --- but I do know that if you're not flushing your system out - your urine will get dark - and that the combo treatment seems to dehydrate most of us ---- so if you're not hydrated then you'll have darker urine.
But --- if you aren't seeing fairly quick results - or if you're having other sides with it (eg. pain, uncomfortable burning, etc... ) then call ye the doc...
The darker your urine, the more water you need. That's my indicator for if I'm hydrated enough or dehydrated. I bet you'll notice a direct co-relation between the colour of your urine and the amount of water you drink. It changes pretty quick, so experiment. Spend a day drinking alot more water...and see if it changes.
You want to report it to your treatment doctor and also ask for a urinanalysis. Dark urine can be caused by dehydration,, but it can also be caused by a number of other things including liver and kidney disorders, blood in the urine (hematuria), and even some vitamins and supplements.

Hi, my doctor told me that it was my liver "acting up" It happened a week or so before tx but never while on tx. It has been 5.5 weeks since my last riba and I notice that some vitamins do make it darker but a normal dark, nothing like the dark before tx.
