    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.

    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 !!!

    Side effects: Vomit; Nausea

    Nitrofurantoin for Urinary tract infection; Cystitis

    I have problems with urinary tract infections for years and have already tried a lot. I had to take antibiotics again and again and have them tolerated. I think that must also be written, because the experiences I have read here are not exactly motivating them and disturbing for many, so my positive statement, because not all respond the same, I had no side effects with these antiobiotics. To be honest, I’ve never heard from anyone that he has as many side effects as described here. Maybe you should not always read the instruction leaflet down to the last detail, because it unsettles many and some people literally wait for the side effect to appear. You can also do a lot in parallel with alternative means, which will lead to success with a lot of patience. For example, as a 2-3 month therapy, I take Wobenezym and Angocin in exchange. I also take Angocin in the acute state and often can also abstain from antibiotics. Angocin is also helpful in the onset of colds.

    Side effects: No side effects

    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.

    Side effects: Diarrhea; Headache; Nausea

    Nitrofurantoin for Urinary tract infection

    CAUTION WITH THIS MEDICAMENT !!! Because of frequent urinary tract infections, the urologist prescribed nitrofurantoin as a long-term antibiotic for 6 weeks. After 2 tablets on the 1st day, I got a fever and came to the hospital one day later with kidney pelvic inflammation, the next day showed severe shortness of breath and an outpouring in the pleural space. As the hospital switched to another antibiotic, improvement was seen within a week. I needed four weeks to work. After 2 weeks I had again a severe urinary tract infection and received again nitrofurantione. The following night, I got fever and pain while breathing. Re-hospitalization with respiratory distress and tissue changes in the lungs. Discharge after one week (antibiotic therapy and cystomyacin) with unchanged inflamed bladder (reflection) with ciprofloxacin u. Cystomyacin for further treatment for a period of 2 weeks. 5 days after discontinuation again urinary tract infection and again nitrofurantoin. Fever, shortness of breath, pain in breathing a few hours after the first intake. It became clear to me that the problems had to be related to nitrofurantoin. The family doctor and urologist considered it unlikely. 5 days hospitalization, there confirmed me the chief physician after I had pointed several times to my suspicion that it could be quite. Later, my urologist revised his testimony and supported my theory. Meanwhile, I have been treated by a naturopath and it works better. Since August, I have been able to work for a full three weeks, because no doctor saw the connections between the drug and my symptoms, even though my sulfonamide allergy was noted in all the files and the medical history.

    Side effects: Respiratory complaints

    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
