just wondering if on day 5 its ok to drink beer once in awhile ## Hello, Ma! How are you? It is best to abstain from alcohol, when taking any prescription medication.

It can make one drink affect you the same as if you'd had 2 and so on. However, if your doctor okays your indulgence, then please make sure that you won't be driving or operating any dangerous machinery. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

I'm on day 3 of a 7 day course of Nitrofurantoin (4x50mg). After taking my third dose, I experienced what I would describe as 'flu' like symptoms; aches, shivers and general malaise. The next day I felt much better - the 'flu like' symptoms were gone but I still felt a bit nauseous and had diarrhoea. However the symptom I'm most worried about is a cough I've developed. I'm a smoker, bit can't touch a cigarette as I go into spasms of coughing. I'm happy to put up with side effects as my UTI appears to be improving - as long as none of the side effects are considered dangerous. I should also add I'm due to fly tomorrow and wonder if my breathing/cough would beade worse. ## HI, Anne! How are you feeling? Yes, the dry air of a plane may make it a ... ...

is it dangerous to take nitrofurantoin 7 months after the discard date? ## Hello, Ezmee! How are you? It doesn't become toxic, or anything, once expired, however, the danger may lie in the fact that it might not be as effective as it was, when new, which could result in your developing antibiotic resistant bacteria. Thus, it's best to dispose of it and see your doctor for a new prescription. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this antibiotic as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Is there anything else I can help with? ...
