    Nitrofurantoin for Urinary tract infection

    Had to take 10 days Norfloxacin because of a urinary tract infection. Suffered very bad, nausea and mental disorders. Thereafter still leucocytes. Had to take the terrible nitrofurantoin with the lethal side effects. Had tingling and pain in the bladder and constant urination. The same thing from cranberry juice. My bladder is hypersensitive because it was irradiated 10 years ago. Cotrim I do not tolerate, get severe diarrhea, that would probably help me. From time to time, get the most severe urinary tract infections, only from cold feet or from friction when riding a bicycle. I’m afraid out of depression.

    Side effects: Diarrhea; Nausea

    Nitrofurantoin for Urinary tract infection

    I am currently in Africa and now have my second bladder infection here and in my life. The doctor immediately gave me this medicine, pointing out that many patients get unpleasant side effects. That scared me off right away, because I do not think so much of those chemical nonsense anyway, but then bought and taken them. The first three tablets were without side effects. Then, some time after the evening intake, I felt sick. After taking the sixth tablet I got diarrhea.

    Side effects: Diarrhea; Headache; Nausea

    Nitrofurantoin for Urinary tract infection

    The medication is almost always fast and reliable. However, side effects such as headache, nausea (short after taking) and diarrhea occur. which of course is not very pleasant. Initially, I had the dose 100 mg, have now halved, side effects have remained the same.
