What Is Nitrofur Macr 100 Mg
Can this medicine be used to gratis a tooth infection? ## Hi Heidi, I have my doubts, because Nitrofurantoin has poor tissue penetration and is not indicated to treat anything other than simple cystitis (urinary tract infections). I would however recommend using clove essential oil for tooth and mouth related infections. Not only does it numb the pain, but it also kills the infection. A cheap natural alternative to prescription drugs, that is more effective in my opinion. I hope this helps! ## Nitrofurantoin is an antibiotic that can be used to treat various types of infections, but it usually isn't the first choice for a dental infection.

I'm suppose to take this medicine for 3 days twice a day. Is that enough time to clear up my UTI?? ## Hi diamond, According to Wiki, the usual adult dose of nitrofurantoin for a urinary tract infection can be 100 mg two times daily, or 50 mg four times daily for seven days. However, in less severe cases, the dosage can actually be prescribed for as little as 3 days. That should be plenty of time to clear up a UTI if it really is acute.

Will this help? ## Help, Mich! How are you? It is most commonly used to treat UTIs. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea.

Nitrofur Macr 100 Mg Twice A Day
I took this twice in a row at 2:00. Is that okay? Also, is it okay to take one tomorrow morning and then 1 at night? ## Hi Mary, I just took a look at the dosing guidelines for this medication, and it states that Nitrofurantoin monohydrate/macrocrystals capsulesÂshould be taken with food every 12 hours for seven days. Because of that strict 12 hour gap in between doses, I definitely wouldn't say it is ok to take them back to back like that. Schedule your doses so that you take 1 in the morning when you get up and one a couple hours before you go to bed (giving yourself enough time to leave you with 12 hours before the following morning dose). You can view more details about this medication in the link below: I hope this helps! ...
