Macrodantin Bad Reaction When Will It Leave? racing heart

I keep having a racing heart and I only took 25 mg of macrodantin and knew I was in trouble pretty quickly. The ER who was not interested in macrodantin did the usual tests and said I could go home. So, when will this leave? I had hives before a long time ago but never the racing heart and of course, my doctor is unavailable or I would have gone to them instead of the Urgent Care and the ER who didn't give me any instructions on what to do about the Macrobid - how long before it leaves? I know everyone is different. I must take the cake. I'd rather take erthromycin for a really long time which is somewhat resistant but it's better than a racing heart and is useful for keeping my strength up while I work on strengthening my immune system and/or non antibiotics to treat utis. ...

Macrodantin & Amoxicillin

I am taking Macrodantin capsules for a UTI bid for 9 days but it's not working. I want to switch to Amoxicillin 500mg. How long do I have to wait to begin the Amoxicillin? ## If your doctor approves, there shouldn't be any reason to wait, you should be able to make a clean switch from one to the other at the next dosing time. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, diarrhea, and non-allergic skin rash. Are you on any other medications that could be causing UTI symptoms, or issues? ## I actually received Ciprofloxacin 500mg twice daily , that has helped , Thank you for responding !

allergic reaction to Macrodantin

I was prescribed macrodantin for a UTI and I had a severe allergic reaction to it. Can i switch to amoxicillin right away? And how long will it take for the allergic reaction to subside? ## What symptoms did you experience? When I had an allergic reaction to an antibiotic it took several weeks for them to fully clear up. You can switch, as long as your doctor approves. The NIH lists the typical side effects of Amoxicillin as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash, and diarrhea. Are you on any other medications?

reactions to long term use of macrobid

I am on round 3 of macrobid for a UTI that won't go away. Mainly, I have had two weeks of diarrhea and wonder how common this is. I am working with a new urogynecologist to get rid of UTI but wondered if I am going to have diarrhea forever. ## No, while diarrhea can be a side effect, as reported by the FDA, it should go away within a week or two of your finishing your course of treatment. Other side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, and non-allergic skin rash. Have they cultured the bacteria to see specifically what caused it? This may not be the right antibiotic to treat all types of bacteria that can cause UTI's. ## I've read that Macrobid can cause pulmonary problems, in particular a chronic cough. Patients should also be monitored if they are taki...

Macrodantin capsule information

It was dispensed as a grey capsule, just wondering the pros and cons ## My mother died in 1987. A significant contributor to her death was the drug Macrodantin.

Macrodantin effect on blood presure

I am taking macrodantin for a urinary-urethra infection. I have quickly shown a large increase in blood pressure. I also wear an Interstim device for a sluggish bladder. Would this possibly affect blood pressue when taking nitro-fur? ## I can't find anything saying that it does so. Learn more Macrodantin details here. However, have you had any other unusual effects from taking it, such as skin rash, hives or swollen glands? I'm asking because I had a high blood pressure elevation when I had a bad reaction to an antibiotic. It turned out I was allergic to it.

Hey Ive had bladder infection, went to the doctors and they've given me MACRODANTIN CAPSULES 100mg to take 3x a day and its the yellow capsules but seriously been going alot to the toilet to pee, now is this normol to be going to pee alot? ## Well, it could be caused by the medication, or due to the bladder infection itself, so it's a bit difficult to say which one, but yes, it is something you'd experience from either one.

macrodantin and loratadine histamine

I have just been prescribed Macrodantin for a UTI, 5 hours after taking this, I have shortness of breath a little bit of tightness in neck. So thought I would take an antihistamine to take away the feeling. Is it ok to take these two together for the duration of my treatment which is 7 days?

watson capsule 3250

black and yellow capsule ## Macrodantin (Nitrofur Mac 50 mg)50 mg was prescribed by my urologist. My last presription given by the pharmacy was red and white. This pill is yellow and black with Watson 3250 inscribed on it. Was I dispensed the wrong dosage by the pharmacy this time? ## Yes, you did receive a different dosage, the one marked Watson 3250 is a 100mg capsule, not 50mg. If you are supposed to be on 50mgs, then you need to take that prescription back to your pharmacy and inform them of the error so they can provide you with the correct dosage.
