I haven't been on clindomycin, but my urine smells very chemical-y since I started abx. Not sure if it's burnt hair smell, but definitely not pleasant.

yeah me too....it's a chemical type smell, like hmmm, drugs...

i think "up" means that if you don't have any responses, somebody comes along, responds, and it moves to the top of the posts....er, something like that...

To reply to a thread to get it to move up the page in priority. Any new post to a thread updates it and prioritizes it.

Otherwise known as a "Bump" or "bump up".


As for the topic, my urine doesn't smell like burnt hair, but I am sorry yours does, Color Green - not a pleasant smell.

I'm no expert but it seems when there is a change in urine while on medications it's usually something to tell your doctor about. It could be a harmless side-effect of a medication or it could be more important.

Have you been on regular testing for your liver/kidneys, etc?

yes, all the meanings of bump/up are correct.

it's a way that if you've not had a reply in 24 hrs. to get it up to top so it's seen, read, and replied if folks have answers!

my urine has always had a very strong smell to it; sometimes like chlorox bleach! STRONG!
