Nitrofurantoin is an antibiotic. It is used to prevent and treat infections of the bladder, kidney and other parts of the urinary tract.
Do not take Nitrofurantoin if:
|Pregnancy and Breastfeeding||
Nitrofurantoin should not be used during labour or delivery because there is a possibility that use at this stage may affect the baby. If you want to breastfeed, please consult your doctor first.
You must tell your doctor if you are taking, have recently taken or might take other medicines, in particular:
All medication can cause side effects. We have only listed a few to be aware of. Details of all side effects, including rare side effects to be aware of, are listed in the patient information leaflet (PIL). When completing your medical questionnaire, it is very important that you answer the questions truthfully. This is to ensure your doctor has a full picture of your medical history before prescribing. List all medicines you are already taking, including non-prescription and herbal medicines.
Some cystitis infections may clear up of their own accord. You can ease symptoms by drinking 2-3 litres a day to flush the bladder and by taking cranberry tablets which are available from your pharmacy. Trimethoprim is another antibiotic available if Nitrofurantoin is not appropriate. Other antibiotics can be used for the treatment of more serious cases of cystitis. These are not prescribed by Anytime Doctor as more serious UTIs may need close monitoring.
