I haven't heard about something similar like this.
It is normal to smell that odor while on antibiotic treatment and soon after the discount of the meds.
Urine smell can be due to UTI, kidney problems, liver disease, metabolic disorder, or simply as a side effect of using certain supplements or eating certain food.
If this continue to persist consult your physician.
