Nitrofurantoin while pregnant

Common Questions and Answers about Nitrofurantoin while pregnant

macrobid

Well, I'm in my first trimester and I have a urinary track infection, and a doctor at a hospital prescribed me Nitrofurantoin 100 mg , 4 times a day, of course the side effects are worse in me, I guess because of my pregnancy, but I need to know if it's really safe for my baby, I'm not having any problems in my pregnancy, and I don't have any spotting, thanks God. But I had a miscarriage before and I'm very concerned about any pills doctors make me take.
Antibiotics which are usually given in pregnant women for e.coli uti are Cephalexin, erythromycin, nitrofurantoin, Augmentin and Bactrim. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
I of course looked it up and read horrifying stories about people who took this drug while pregnant and their babies DIED! or they had a miscarriage! I am now terrified to take this drug but I know I need to because a UTI is very serious. Has anyone taken this drug? is it safe? how was your experience with it? did anything bad happen too you? Sorry I am so overly paranoid I am a FTM. Help! my baby wont die if I take this drug will he?
The Nitrofurantoin, which is the generic for Macrobid, is what I used while pregnant, and it cleared my UTI up everytime. Vomiting and nausea is a side effect of the macrobid, and in the future, I would tell my doctor that it caused you to be sick. They can try something else and hopefully it won't make you feel so bad. Most common antibiotics used to treat UTI's are: Macrobid, Augmentin, Cipro, Amoxicillin, etc. It really depends on the type of bacteria that is present in the urinary tract.
I haven't had a uti while pregnant. Are you concerned it isn't the right one? I'm a nurse, if you tell me what he/she gave you I can tell you if (to my knowledge) if its common and what class of is... also look into cranberry juice or pills.

It doesn't burn to pee and my habits haven't really changed other than the fact I'm finally able to drink loads of water again (weeks of morning sickness dehydrated me). Has anyone had a kidney infection/inflammation/stone while pregnant? I don't have a fever. I'm going to the dr next week but am worried I'm not taking it seriously.
You will need to discuss the benefits and risks of using Nitrofurantoin while you are pregnant. Do NOT take Nitrofurantoin if you are at term (38 to 42 weeks pregnant), if you are about to go into labor, or if you are in labor. Nitrofurantoin is found in breast milk. Do not breast-feed infants younger than 1 month old while you are taking Nitrofurantoin . If your child is older than 1 month, check with your doctor. Discuss any possible risks to your baby.

hey mikey -- look, there is ALWAYS a chance that someone can get pregnant - there are many here that either have, or know someone who got pregnant while on the pill, while using a condom, or by using any other form of BC... It's going to be a waiting game for you. Wait until her period to see - if she gets it, then i guess you're lucky, and be smart next time, you will save yourself a lot of anguish. No one here can tell you for sure, it's up to nature.
I was too freaked out to take it. (even though he said its ok to take while pregnant) I feel fine.. I dont have anymore symptoms. Someone had said that it can cause a mc in early pregnancy. I am 11 weeks. what do you guys think?? should i go get it filled?
I am trying not to miss any doses. But, I am going on vacatin in 3 weeks and I really want to drink while I am on vacation so, am not sure what to do. Do I not take it for the week and hope I don't get withdrawl syptoms? Or do I take it and drink? I need an answer to this question....I do no know what to do???? Do other people drink while on Celexa and why is it a problem?
Ev, Since muscle is what uses up glucose I would focus on building new muscle more than any cardio excersise because that only burns energy while you do it whereas muscle will burn glucose much more gradual and a lot longer over time. It must be very challenging when your Dr. tells you not to lift more than 10lbs because of varcises. But even light weight training if done daily will increase muscle mass and if combined with a low glycemic diet will definately bring down blood sugar.
it is a very very heavy drug and difficult and harmful for the liver so they insist that your liver be checked before hand and also that you agree to not get pregnant while taking it as it does cause serious birth defects....these are the few things i rememebr about accutane....but it isn't in anyway responsible for hep c virus...unless of course the virus was undetected and the liver panal not done prior and the accutane severly aggravated an pre existing condition with your liver.....

I have bad infec in my throat an my dr gave me cephlalexin(liquid cause i cant swallow pills) yesterday but im scared. What are the chnces of my throat swelling up w this????
I never really payed much attention to it, because like others, I thought that everyone experienced this every once in a while. I do not get it every day... just every once in a while. It can be in any part of my body... lots of times through my ears, neck, hands, arms, etc. It only lasts a couple of seconds at a time, but it is debilitating when it happens. I will be cringing in pain and my bf thinks I'm crazy.
I'll stop using that toothpaste and see if it makes a difference. Oh also, while I don't feel that stressed, I'm getting married in a few weeks, so there is that life change coming up!
