Answer: 
Dark yellow or orange urine can be caused by recent use of laxatives or consumption of B complex vitamins or carotene. Orange urine is often caused by phenazopyridine (used in the treatment of urinary tract infections), rifampin, and warfarin. Reference: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/003139.htm
