Nitrofurantoin - Overview

Nitrofurantoin is a type of antibiotic medication sometimes prescribed to people though to have an infection suspected to be caused by a microorganism susceptible to nitrofurantoin.

Nitrofurantoin - Indication and Dosage

Nitrofurantoin, along with the branded versions Macrobid and Macrodantin, is an antibacterial agent. Nitrofurantoin is largely used for UTI treatment, specifically acute uncomplicated infections caused by susceptible strains of Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus saprophyticus. Nitrofurantoin should only be used in the treatment or prevention of infections that are strongly suspected or proven to be caused by bacteria. Nitrofurantoin is found as a hard gelatin capsule shell containing nitrofurantoin 100 mg (nitrofurantoin macrocrystals and nitrofurantoin monohydrate). After administration, some nitrofurantoin can be found unchanged in the urine over 24 hours. Nitrofurantoin works by inactivating specific molecules such as ribosomal proteins in the target bacteria, impairing a number of metabolic processes. Additionally, bacterial resistance to nitrofurantoin is low. Nitrofurantoin is often prescribed as one nitrofurantoin 100mg capsule every 12 hours for seven days.

Nitrofurantoin - Medication Cost

Nitrofurantoin prescription medication is available as 100 mg opaque black and yellow capsules. While nitrofurantoin is only moderately affordable at roughly $1 per pill at most pharmacies, most nitrofurantoin courses are short which limits the total cost of the antibiotic. Additionally, the cost of nitrofurantoin is sometimes covered by insurance plans that cover medication costs. Nitrofurantoin coupons may be available for people who cannot afford the medication and need nitrofurantoin treatment.
