Nitrofurantoin is a highly effective substance used to treat urinary tract infections, also known as cystitis, as well as some other bacterial infections. It is an antibiotic used exclusively for the treatment of bacterial infections, which means that Nitrofurantoin does not work for viral infections such as the flu or a cold. In some cases, it might be used along with some other medications to treat certain forms of pneumonia, acne or traveler's diarrhea.
Nitrofurantoin is used to treat various types of uncomplicated urinary tract infections (UTI), including cystitis and kidney infections. Most of these infections are easily treated with this drug within a few days.
A urinary tract infection is a condition that occurs when the bacteria enter your urinary tract and begin to irritate it, causing inflammation. Nitrofurantoin works by stopping the growth of bacteria in your urinary tract. The most common symptoms of these infections are:
If you experience any of these symptoms, you most likely have a urinary tract infection. It is essential to seek professional assistance and treat it in a timely manner.
Once ingested, the substance is quickly filtered from the liver into the blood and then enters the urinary tract. This is the most important trait, which is characterized by its concentration at the point where the infection takes place. However, this means that Nitrofurantoin does not work on any other type of infection. Typically, you should take Nitrofurantoin 100 mg twice or once a day to prevent bladder infection.
Along with its desired effects, the drug may also cause some undesirable ones. The most common side effects include:
