... concerta and I wondered if this was a side effect of it or something else
My sons urine was always dark and strong smelling while he was taking Concerta but I think a lot has to do with them not drinking enough fluids. When I made him drink a few bottles of water throughout the day, it was better but there was no one at school who encouraged him to drink so he would inevitably come home from school with strong urine. Make sure your son drinks plenty of water or juices/gatorade to keep him well hydrated. Mention it to his Dr on the next visit. They may want to do a UA just to be sure he has no infection present.
