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 taking it longer than 6 months. Can the cough continue after stopping the med, due to lung damage? I'm trying to figure out how to deal with Kaiser and their lack of treatment. I think they caused my cough due to over-use of Macrobid. They deny this is even a possibility (I think this is more out of fear of a lawsuit).
