Dark/Smelly Urine

Hi,

I've recently been having progressively darker (ranging from yellow to dark yellow, although not yet brown) urine along with STRONG urine smells.  
I am a 28 yo female.  My only medications are birth control and occassionally vicodin for a chronic back condition.  
At first I didn't notice the color change and blamed the smell on a change in diet--however the color has been more apparent recently and the smell has not abated once I removed the item in question (green tea) from my daily diet for the last two weeks.  Any thoughts would be appreciated...

Hi,
     How are you? Vicodin is prescribed for pain. The common side effects for this drug are constipation, dry mouth, confusion, light headedness, dark urine, problem with urination, convulsions etc.
Smelly urine needs to be evaluated for infections by getting a urine analysis done and visiting a urologist.
Best.
