NITROFURANTOIN AND BLOOD PRESSURE

I have been taking Nitrofurantoin 100mg, one per day for 2 months. Since taking it have had bad headaches, lightheadedness, nausea and my blood pressure keeps going low. Can the Nitrofurantoin cause bp to go low and also once the Nitrofuantoin has been stopped, how long before the side effects disappear ? ## I take notification mono/mac 100mg and my blood pressure is elevated ## There is no effect on blood pressure listed among the side effects reported by the FDA, though there is no way to be sure how nay given medication will affect any certain person that takes it. However, I'd be more inclined to think that your respective illnesses are causing these issues, which means they should improve, after they are resolved. But it would be best to have them checked out, to be sure. Other...

Furitex brand Nitrofurantoin 100mg

The box I have of furitex brand nitrofurantoin 100mg that has been given to me for my uti while I'm visiting Mexico doesn't say what dose to take or if it is dual release or regular... How can I tell and should I take two a day or 4? ## Hello Hannah, After doing some research I found a gov webpage that states the dosages should be only taken as prescribed by the doctor and that the dosages may vary from case to case so there is no suggested dosage. With this in mind I don't think it's a very wise decision to be making guesses or just trusting your safety to strangers on the internet. In this case I would suggest two things in the following order. First if you have the option to do so, I would recommend getting a hold of the doctor who prescribed the medication to you or ...

Nitrofur Mac and the time it takes to leave your system

I am taking nitrofur mac 100mg 2x a day for a bladder infection. I have had mild nausea. How does it take to leave my system entirely after I have taken my last pill ## Nitrofurantoin's Half-life is about 20 minutes. However this time is increased in those with renal impairment. The time it takes to completely leave your system is varied for each individual, however most Antibiotics can stay in your system for a few days after you stop taking them. I would estimate anywhere from 2-4 days depending on how long you were taking them. I hope this helps! ## Is it normal for nitrofurantoin to give feeling of rapid heartbeat and when will it go back to normal. Also still having feeling of urgency to pass urine and frequency after 12 x 50mg doses and end of course; is this normal. ## Is any...

Does Nitrofurantoin contain any sulfur?

My doctor (OBG) gave me nitrofurantoin monohydrate macrocrystals (100 caps) for a UTI. 3 days after completing my dose I got an allergic reaction with hives, etc. I went to my MP Dr. and she said I may be allergic to sulfur, but my OBG just told me there is no sulfur in this antibiotic. I am a little confused. So what am I allergic to? ## Hello Shadow, Sorry to hear that you are having an allergic reaction to something in your medication. One thing I would like to point out is that people often confuse sulfa, sulfate, sulfur and sulfite. Sulfur is most commonly found in fertilizers and is unlikely in any medication that you are taking, however sulfa and sulfates are found in medication frequently. It is important when talking with medical professionals to know which of these they are ta...

nitrofurantoin mono mcr 100 for staph infection related UTIs

My doctor told me that Cipro or Bactim are very good for treating UTIs caused by E-Coli, but that Nitrofurantoin Mono_MCR is better than the other two for treating UTIs caused by staph infection. Can you tell me any more about this. ## Hello, Ed! How are you? What else do you want to know about it? It is as simple as your doctor stated, different antibiotics are sometimes better at treating different things. It doesn't mean that the others can't be used, if necessary or if someone is allergic to the preferred choices, but it may take longer and be more difficult to eradicate the infection. They may all cause common side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. ## Yes Ed, those are good. I found for just E. coli the microdanton works best, for me. ...

nitrofurantoin side effects

I am 76 years old. I was prescribed Nitrofurantoin 50 MG twice a day for a UTI. On the 11th day I developed a red rash all over my legs, huge hives everywhere which itched incessantly, swelling of face and lips and extreme fatigue. The swelling, hives and rash went away after 3 - 4 days, but now, 10 days after that I still have low energy which isn't like me ## Hello, Gingos! How are you doing?

I had an allergic reaction to one myself last year and it's really just a matter of time for all of the symptoms to improve, it took about a month for all of mine to go away and for me to feel back to normal. ## C...

Nitrofurantoin-Vaginal itching?

Hello! I was prescribed Nitrofurantoin for a UTI and I’m on my third day of taking it. My UTI symptoms seem to be gone however I’ve developed some pretty instense vaginal itching. Is the itching related to the antibiotic or did I get super lucky and develop a yeast infection or something? No discharge or rash just itching. If the itching IS a side effect of the antibiotic should I call my doctor to discontinue it or is it not a huge deal as long as I can handle it? Thanks in advance for any advice! ## Hello MeSoItchy, Sorry to hear about the UTI. According to Dailymed vaginal itching is a common side effect of Nitrofurantoin.

Nitrofurantoin mono mac side effects

I am taking this medication for a UTI. I have been on it for a day and a half. This morning I was suddenly wakened by a loud sound in my ears (sounded like birds chirping), and a stinging pain across my face, down my spine into my arms and legs - worse on my left side than on my right. I sat up and walked around and it finally subsided, although it was hard to walk at first. It felt like my muscles didn't want to respond. I laid back down, as I was very tired, and in about a half hour it happened again, only worse. I am now up and looking for answers. Could this be from the nitrofurantoin? ## Hi, Sally! I'm not sure, it's hard to say. Some people have experienced some very odd side effects from antibiotics, it's happened to me, so I have to say that it is possible. What ...

nitrofurantoin how long does it take to get into your system

I took my second to last dosage last night, about 4 hours later I was sick and am hoping it’s not interfered in anyway, I still feel a little bit of the uti symptoms after taking my last tablet 4 hours ago (they’re less intense but still there). I’m hoping it will still get rid of the infection as it took 3 weeks to get any antibiotics that actually touched it. ## No, you should have digested and used the medication, after 4 hours, so it should not create a problem. How long were you taking it, and what was the dosage? It can take about 3 days, or so, for such a medication to take full effect and start to eliminate the bacteria that has caused the infection. The NIH lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, diarrhea, and non-allergic skin ...

Reactions that occurred after finishing Nitrofurantoin

I recently was treated for a UTI with 100mg of Nitrofurantoin twice a day for 10 days. 11/23/16 through 12/3/16. On 12/6/16, I developed terrible heartburn along with a weird heat/tingly/itching sensation on the palms of my hands and fingers, arches of my feet, eyes, back of scalp. The itching has gotten worse (it is now 12/10/16), and I'm still having problems with the heartburn. I was seen by a doctor for the heartburn on 12/7/16, and he gave me a GI cocktail to relieve the pain, which was basically a band-aid for a couple of hours. I am 53, and have never had a problem with heartburn. I did have a problem, (severe) with terrible itching along with rash back in April when I was prescribed Prednisone. The other thing I experienced was a very heavy period after not having one for a ...

how long do side effects of nitrofurantoin mono mac last

I have a rash all over my body after a 10-day course of nitrofurantoin mono macro. The rash started the day after I finished the antibiotic. How long can I expect it to last as the itching is driving me crazy!! ## Hello, Sharon! How are you doing? If it's an itchy rash, then that's most likely from an allergic reaction, the rash that antibiotics can cause as a side effect is specifically called a non-allergic rash, because it just causes a topical skin rash, with no itching or hives. Learn more Nitrofurantoin details here. Have you consulted your doctor? An allergic rash may require proper medical treatment and you will most likely not be able to take this antibiotic again, in the future. ## I'm 28 yrs old and was prescribed macrobid 100mg for a bad bladder infection yesterd...

Nitrophurantoin adverse side effects

After just one 50mg capsule I developed a massive headache, nausea, diarrohea with blood, nose bleed and just wanted to sleep. After persevering and another 6 capsules I thought I was going to be hospitalized, in all my life I have never been so ill and could no longer function. I spoke to my Dr and she saw me immediately and was wanting me to have a CAT scan, I felt so ill I declined as I was certain it was the drug. I was then prescribed Trimethoprim, these also had side effects but manageable and of course it took several days getting over being poisoned. I have never taken antibiotics before so had no idea if I was allergic to any, it is like russian roulette. The side effects of this drug are serious and at no point was I informed to be cautious in case they occurred, why? I feel l...

Dewitt pills for kidney bladder - Availability in Hong Kong

Where can I find Dewitt pills for kidney & bladder in Hong Kong? ## Where can I buy Dewitt urinal pills? I cannot seem to find them. ## These pills are no longer being manufactured, so they are not available in any country. DeWitt stopped making them years ago, since they were not approved by the FDA, or other medical agencies. The best suggestion I an make is that you both consult your respective doctors to get a proper diagnosis as to what is causing your problem, and the best way to treat it. Are either of you prone to urinary tract infections? If so, you may require an antibiotic, such as Nitrofurantoin, which is commonly used to treat urinary tract infections. The NIH lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, headache, diarrhea, and non-allergic skin rash.

Nitrofurantoin itching

I have been prescribed this for repeated UTI and am on a 56 day course. But three weeks in I too have intense itching. I take one tablet at night with some food or milk and two hours later the itching starts. I find ice packs on feet and hands help and have tried taking an antihistamine one hour before but this doesn't seem to help. I have resorted to taking one of my husbands amitriptyline which helps to calm things down, and is easier than standing in a bath or cold water whilst holding my hands under the freezing cold water tap !! Not fun. I also get a shortness of breath, like a tightness in my chest. I am waiting to hear back from my GP as to whether I should stop taking it. ## I think you should contact your doctor immediately, these could be the symptoms of an allergic reacti...
