Does Nitrofurantoin monohydrate treat a urinary staph infection. It seems that it's more for treatment of ecoli. I tested positive for leukocytes and neg. for nitrates. Is this the right medication?

Nitrofurantoin is an antibiotic used to treat urinary tract infections, but you are right in that this medication is more for fighting E.coli. Information I gathered states that Nitrofurantoin is only clinically proven for use against E. coli or Staph. saprophyticus.

I would recommend taking a look at the link below for info on the "best" antibiotics for treating urinary staph infections:

I hope this helps! Please post back if you need help finding anymore information.
