    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 take the Furadantin now the 2nd day and have to say that I’m not feeling well with it. After the first tablet, I already had itching on the arms with pustules. During the day I had nausea and was very depressed mood. The itching was now on the whole body and I had temporary respiratory distress and body aches. After the evening tablet, they were again intensified symptoms and I had a very restless night with little sleep. I took another tablet in the morning, hoping it would get better, but unfortunately that was not the case. I am still not well with the drug, but my complaints regarding the urinary tract infection have become much better. I will stop taking the drug today, but I think there are people who can handle it well. That varies from patient to patient.

    Dizziness and nausea, coughing, weakness. It was prescribed for me by hospital doctors after a small op and as a prevention against recurring urinary tract infections. My urologist thought it appropriate. But I have asthma and I discussed this with another urologist. He advised I forgot the side effects on the lung tissue from the drug.

    Side effects: Dizziness; Nausea

    Nitrofurantoin for Cystitis

    I have had to take Nitrofurantione (Furadantin) for 14 years. From my birth I suffer from recurrent (chronic) urinary tract infections. The first occurred with me at the age of 8 weeks. After years of treatment with a variety of drug groups showed that my bacteria were resistant to almost all drugs and are still. Except for nitrofurantione. If left untreated, renal pelvic inflammatory disease developed quite rapidly. I have been taking this active ingredient permanently (daily) for 14 years since I was 5 years old. First, I took 100mg 3 times a day. Later, the dose was reduced to 2 times 100mg per day and 50mg per day towards the end of the intake period. Nothing else helped. As soon as I stopped it, the infection returned after 2-3 days. As far as I can tell, it saved my life in a way. However, I have had and still struggle with serious side effects. In addition to the constant nausea that accompanied me as a child, I also had vomiting frequently. I got loss of appetite from nitrofurantone. I also felt tired and beaten off. After prolonged use of the drug, my growth decreased. I have experienced a disturbed growth phase. My little finger e.g. has grown remarkably short (but all limbs are present). The headache developed into a migraine with aura. Tingling sensations and numb limbs also appeared. Furthermore, I had a sensation of heat on my hands. In addition, there was a decrease in the leukocyte count in peripheral blood (leukopenia). This remained even after discontinuation of the drug. Light hair loss also occurred under nitrofurantoin. Joint pain in the knees was also observed. Nitrofurantoin also caused depression. These laid down after discontinuation of the drug. Skin reactions, such as inflamed mucous membranes in the genital area also occurred repeatedly. Today I have an unexplained asthma. In addition to all these not exactly great experiences, it has helped me anyway. I no longer have to take medication permanently and have a good grip on chronic urinary tract infections. However, nitrofurantoin is still the 1st drug of choice in an infection, as my bacteria are still resistant to almost all other drugs.

    Side effects: Vomit; Nausea

    I had very severe dizziness, nausea and vomiting. According to my antibiogram, my body only reacts to N at HWI. Strangely enough, Ciprobay always helps.’N. I really can not recommend!

    Nitrofurantoin for Urinary tract infection

    For almost 6 years I have constantly urinary tract infections (every 1.5 – 2 months) My urologist then prescribed me a Medikamment, which I took a good three months of a year. At first I got on well with nitrofurantoin, I was supposed to take a tablet every night so it could work well overnight. Gradually then came the side effects, first only nausea, so I could not sleep for hours, then came to vomiting. I would not recommend this medicine to anyone !!!

    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

    I was sick when I took Nitro. So I only took the medication in the evening. Then it is good. Otherwise perfect. I have to be careful with Cirpo500. After one week at the latest, itching and nausea will appear. But you can handle it.

    Side effects: Itching; Nausea

    Nitrofurantoin for Cystitis

    Nausea (but no vomiting), loss of appetite, dizziness, fatigue / dizziness, restlessness … so if you have taken a tablet after half an hour, you can expect the side effects that then last at least 2 hours.
