Hmmm... those are interesting symptoms. While I am NOT a doctor or medical professional...

Water-soluble vitamins and supplements can cause the urine to darken because unneeded nutrients and vitamins from the pills are expelled from the body via urine (which changes the color). Does the L-lysine bottle say it is water soluble and/or may cause side effects such as dry mouth or darker urine? 

The probiotics may also be causing the urine change, but I am not sure. Does it mention side effects on the bottle? What is the brand/type of proboitic? 

I just looked up the side effects of Valacyclovir (oral route/pill) and it said "Incidence not known" for side effects of dry mouth and dark (or bloody) urine, which means there are not known documented cases of the drug causing these side effects. So, perhaps those are symptoms from the L-lysine or the probiotic? 

If you send the brand and ingredients of them, then perhaps I can do some more research!!

If you notice any more symptoms or are worried about the ones you currently have, call your doctor to be safe! 🙂 It's always better to be safe ❤️ 

Sending happy healthy thoughts and prayers your way!

I just looked up the product and read the ingredients, and the first ingredient listed was vitamin C, which can totally cause urine to turn odd shades of yellow!! I take a B-complex and it turns my pee a weird shade of yellow as well. B and C vitamins will do that since they are water soluble!! 

I hope that helps!!
