Nitrofurantoin (Macrobid) - Overview
Nitrofurantoin, marketed under names such as Macrobid and Macrodantin, is a type of antibiotic. Push Health can help connect people who need a nitrofurantoin prescription with medical providers who can prescribe Macrobid or Macrodantin if it is safe and appropriate to do so.
Nitrofurantoin (Macrobid) - Indication and Dosage
Nitrofurantoin, along with the branded versions Macrobid and Macrodantin, is an antibacterial agent. Macrobid is largely used for UTI treatment, specifically acute uncomplicated urinary tract infections (acute cystitis) 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. As Macrobid, 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. Macrobid is often prescribed as one 100mg capsule every 12 hours for seven days.
Nitrofurantoin - Medication Cost
Macrobid 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.

Nitrofurantoin - Side Effects
Use of generic nitrofurantoin as well as branded versions of nitrofurantoin such as Macrobid and Macrodantin can result in various side effects. Concerns about nitrofurantoin side effects should be discussed with one's pharmacist and medical provider before use. Side effects from nitrofurantoin use include diarrhea, nausea, headache, flatulence abdominal pain and bloody stool.
