How long does it take for nitrofurantoin to work

Common Questions and Answers about How long does it take for nitrofurantoin to work


It works by interfering with various chemical processes in the bacteria, which results in the death of the bacteria. Since you have started taking it recently so it will take a few days to start its action. Hence continue taking the medicine as prescribed but make sure to drink plenty of water and fluids as it helps in flushing out the toxins and bacteria. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
The Doctor now has me on Cefixime for 5 days and then to take Nitrofurantoin for 10 days after that (I think he to is treating me for a UTI). I am still having some mild symptoms with being on this medication and knowing how this has gone for the past 6 months I can till that whatever I have is not gone and will return with a vengeance once I am off this medication.
I took macrobid as well. How long ago did u last take it and what are ur symptoms? Macrobid really messed me up.
The final possibility is posterior circulation TIA (transient ischemic attacks/small strokes) to work you up for this I would suggest an MRA (MR angiogram), and make sure your MRI was done with diffusion weighted imaging. A Trancranial doppler study of the posterior circulation may also help with this concern. I hope this has been helpful.

Hi how long did it take for the rash to subside and for you to feel better.. Please let me know..
I told them that I thought it might be carbon monoxide. He decided to do a blood test to see if it was a possibility. A week passed by and I got a call and my blood test came back normal. All I had was low potassium, but this was not anything major. I kept having the same symptoms. More weeks passed by. I went to rent a movie one day with my boyfriend. Inside the store I felt out of breath. My hands started tingling, so we decided to leave.
I had chronic UTI symptoms for months from the initial UTI. I was taking antibiotics everyday for weeks and it just seemed to make it worse. Then the antibiotics would cause a yeast infection, it was a viscous cycle. I eventually read about D-Mannose its a simple sugar. So I decided to try it, i took it 3 times a day, it helped a lot! its like a natural and less harsh antibiotic. My system feels normal now, I thought it was never going to stop.
Have you been tested for vitamin b12? It took 18 years to find out what was really wrong with me. It is possible to have MS with a normal MRI but after years of prgressive symptoms, i would say lesions of MS would be present. Good luck and i hope you find a correct diagnosis for your problems.
This page is a relief to find, I've had this orange tongue for about a week now and it still hasn't gone away. But it is scary to hear how long most you have had it, that it comes and goes as it pleases, and that in so far doctors don't know anything about and don't seem really care to take it seriously. I'm a 22 yr old male, I smoke and thought it might have been related.
If 30,000 die each year(which hasn't happened yet) it would take 150 years for everyone with Hep c to pass from it!!! It's a terrible disease and I have a loved one with it, but it isn't killing most with it and hopefully with all the new drugs coming especially the combinations WITHOUT interferon, like the promising INFORM-1 trial that works across ALL genotypes, Hepatitis c in the next 5 years will be very controllable.
Many people with CMT do NOT have these pains, however, which is why i'm still searching stuff on this. I take Lyrica and sometimes Neurontin for the stabs... it does cut down on them by quite a bit but the Lyrica is about 60 dollars a month (I have no health plan). Anyway I hope that helps somebody, feel free to add me to your msn if you'd like to vent. :) I KNOW HOW YOU FEEL!!!!!!!!!!
The weird thing is I have this sticky secretion on one side of my shaft and they gave my cream for it but it never seemed to go away long with a 1/2 long gash that healed but is very tender along with where all the secretion is also. When I have sex it makes it worse and hurts light hell. I am going back to the doc's again but no one’s knows what the deal could be. If anyone gets any ideas please post. Thanks for all your help here.
