Common Questions and Answers about Macrobid headache

macrobid

I took the second capsule of Macrobid & went to bed. 7 hrs later I was awoken by not being able to breath. A terrible headache, severe muscle ache all over. After 12 hrs the breathing got a little better with the help of a rescue inhaler. I thought I was getting better. Now three days later I'm having pleurisy symptoms. What a mess!
About two weeks ago, i got the UTI back, got pyridium, ibuprophen and macrobid. Got hives from the macrobid and had to stop. Developed horrid migraine with lots of dizziness. I went to the family doc who ordered a urine test, blood work, and gave us zophran. (also had gotton that from ready care.) suggested ER. went there got a shot of torpal and midran. took that. went to nuerologist. they had put me on a amerge burst, and then she told me to take predisone too.
I have had a killer headache and someone mentioned it could be my antibiotic.... I have been on them for 8 days....
Symptoms of a UTI consist of frequent urination and pain with urination amongst others and some that you have mentioned. I would recommend you go see a dr and gets medication. I got prescribed macrobid or something like that with in 24 hrs it was gone. Also Dr said to drink lots and lots of water to flush all toxins out. Side note I am pregnant though so with that being said they might prescribe you something else.
If it's a black and yellow pill, I've taken it too, but I haven't taken anything since I've been pregnant except for Benadryl for an allergic reaction and Tylenol for a headache. I would assume if your doctor prescribed, they know you are pregnant, so it should be fine.
Hi, I hope you are feeling better now. If you have bad reactions to Macrobid, inform your doctor about this for proper management. You can also try complementary and alternative medicine such as biofeedback therapy to control your headache. This has been recommended by the National Institute of Health and has helped a lot of other headache sufferers as well. Take care always and do keep us posted.
I am a 49 YO woman, diagnosed with UTI one week ago, February 2nd. At the time, macrobid was prescribed. Monday morning the gyn nurse called to say due to culture results, med was being changed to Cipro. 250 mg 2X daily/ 3 days. I am also a brain tumor patient, having had a meningioma successfully resected via craniotomy 5/12/05. Had one "sensory partial seizure" before surgery, one shortly after, none since. No seizure meds since 30 days post-op nearly 2 yrs ago.
I went to the OB/GYN two days later, and the tests again showed white blood cells. She prescribed Macrobid, which I continued to take even after the culture came back negative. I continued having intermittent bladder pain, and went to yet another doctor two weeks ago. White blood cells are again present, and a microscopy showed some bacteria.
Has anyone been prescribed Macrobid for a UTI and had some really awful side affects?? Ive got a terrible headache and some awful nausea.. not to mention body aches. Just wondering.. Im considering taking benadryl in case Im just having some sort of reaction. What do you guys think?
I was admitted into the hospital at 29 weeks for bp's, headache, and slight pain in upper right abdomen, some protein in urine, and was dilated 1 cm. I've never had uti's in the past and have had 3 now with this prenancy. Well, to the point, with all the problems I've been having, I've started to experience lower back pain, cramping, naseua, and decrease in urination. My doctor said they think I might have another uti, but does this sound like it's progressed into a kidney ifection??
At the same time as the UTI I believe I came down with a stomach virus. But with it I also had a extremely painful headache. Dr said the headache and stomach ache were the virus. Also before the UTI symptoms started I began noticing that during intercourse it was slightly painful. About 3 years ago I went through a similar phase of mulitple UTI's and pain that never really resolved itself. I changed my diet and worked out more and it did get better.
Hi, I am a 29 year old female - I have had UTIs since I was about 15yrs old continuously, once or twice a month. The urologist put me on macrobid as a prevenitive medicine to take before intercourse a few years ago. Following those instructions lessened my UTIs to no more than 4 times per year of getting UTIs (much more bearable). Then on Feb. 2nd 2010, I had what I will call an "episode".
It started as pinkish urine and by mid morning looked like weak cranberry juice. I was given the generic form of Macrobid (since I MAY be pregnant.) I have had a HEADACHE for a whole week. Thought this was from caffeine w/d so started drinking my morning coffee and headache still here. Back pain and also had low temp 99-100 for past two days. Also fever and chills for two days which kept me in bed, but those have pretty much gone away.
I am very good about taking my medicine first thing in the morning without anything else (except for an excedrin occassionally if I wake up with a bad headache) and then not eating for at least an hour. Has anyone else heard that levoxyl is absorbed better than synthroid? And what can I expect when I switch tomorrow morning? Thanks.
I've been limping along for a couple of years now for my foot and leg don't work properly anymore and just recently I've been having a funny shivery feeling up and down my spine (like one feels when they have the flu) and a tingling headache only at the back of my head. One time I had taken some Macrobid for a Urinary Tract Infection and it erased all my numbness problems, so I haven't a clue as to what is wrong with me but I think I might be suffering from an infection along my spinal cord(?
I am 32 years old male, two months back i woke up with urgent need to urinate and the frequency increased to 10 times in an hour. I had body ache slight feverand headache. since I was not accessible to good doc i suspected UTI and to cipro for three days. i got relieved from my problem but exactly after 10 days i suffered from similar problem but quite severe. i had blood in my urine alongwith witish discharge.
I was in UNBEARABLE PAIN almost from head to toe. I was running a high fever, throwing up, , I had a headache that literally felt like NO OTHER I had ever had... and nothing would make the pain subside or even become bearable. He had me do a urinalysis which came back positive for a Kidney infection...a bad one. He gave me a shot of antibiotics and wrote a prescription for some too when I got home. Ive been taking the antibiotics like Im suppose to, and eating bland, drinking ALOT ..
Was put on Macrobid/Metrogel for 5 days for UTI.Have neuropathy and it made it worse. Had bad headache so pharmacist said stop meds. Headache continued, eye pain, pain in left chest, shoulder, arm, wrist. Breathing problems. Remember taking one Tequin a few days later that I had from previous UTI. At a loss as to what this is. Could this be from the medicine after all this time? Read Macrobid causes lung and Tequin heart probs? With all the tests could it still be lung or heart?
No infection. Nothing. The doc still prescribed me an antibiotic (Macrobid ) which I took for 3 weeks but with no relief. He also put me on Prosed for a week. I have a feeling of pressure in my urethral passage and also a severe feeling of dull aching pain and discomfort on the tip of my urethra ( close to clitoris). I cannot do fast jerky body movements since I get the feeling that the urine may leak out. I also am scared to do any physical exercise due to the same reason.
Overall, your symptoms sound like general deconditioning and could be possibly related to the "autoimmune illness." It would be helpful to determine exactly what autoimmune disease you actually have with laboratory and clinical testing. A neurological disease that would explain all of your symptoms does not come to mind, but many autoimmune diseases such as LUpus do have neurological manifestations such as peripheral neuropathies.
Had effects during this treatment (worsening of neuropathy, insomnia, headache, terrible muscle pain, several migraines)I am also a brain tumor patient(craniotomy benign meningioma '05).I have Hashimotos hypothyroid diagnosed 10/05. Take synthroid .125. Before Cipro had been on macrobid for 3 days, culture required change of med. I finished the 3 days of Cipro. 3 nights later 2/11/05 out of nowhere, sharp abdominal pains, burping, cramping, bloating,gas,loose stools 3 times this night.
I switched to Macrobid about two months ago and so far I am uti free. You may have to experiment to find what works for you. It's great that your husband is also going with you, but I hope you are able to do this on your own. Practice makes perfect, so dont' be afraid to try and try. You may also need to try different positions -sitting or standing to make this work for you. Whatever you do, do not use a catheter that has missed the mark and been placed in your vagina instead.
8 and mine is 250,the docror gave me tablets called legalon,and it has been 6 months and I am still ill.The symptoms I have are a headache,my eyes feel like they are being tightend,I feel nauseas,my heart feels as if it is pumping harder and faster,I used to have a pain in the abdomen and stomach but that seems to have gone. If I drink these symptoms get worse and I feel as if my heart is gonig stop.
ER said it was kidney infection..high fever, back and flank pain, hard to self cath. Started macrobid. Three days later my doctor says culture came back negative, so I went off antibiotic. Still have fever and lots of pain. When Urologist diagnosed neurogenic bladder she sent me back to Primary doc saying she couldnt help because it is a neurological problem. She speculated that I have MS, and I started having tests to find out.

Along with the fibro type symptoms, I have chronic kidney infections and have become allergic to macrobid and sulfa. Ibuprofen gives me NO relief, tylenol makes it dull down some. I feel like a hypochondriac...going to the dr.... tests show nothing...but my pain and fatigue never stop. Some days are much better than others, but none are close to pain free. I work as a hygienist 3 days a week....
So far, symptoms/sides not too bad. However, last weekend I developed my first ever migraine headache to the point where I ended up throwing up. Yesterday, I developed a urinary tract infection out of the blue. Never had one before in my life. I'm on Procrit and my hemoglobin has come up from 9.5 to 10.4 in the past 3 weeks. My WBC remains low at 1.8. When I asked MD about it, he said it has been at 1.

Thank you all for your advice. I just got back from the ER and they are treating me with Macrobid (UTI) type symptoms. My fever was 100.6 and the symptoms were there. My culture came back negative but he said sometimes early on they don't show yet and no harm to treat since macrobid doesn't hurt the baby. The doc said to come back in a day or so if the cramping didn't subside or if I have bleeding so they can do an ultrasound and b/w. I am hoping they will go away.
