How long does it take for nitrofurantoin to work

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


Avatar f tn 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.

Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn I took macrobid as well. How long ago did u last take it and what are ur symptoms? Macrobid really messed me up.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn Hi how long did it take for the rash to subside and for you to feel better.. Please let me know..
Avatar m tn because you are in a VERY long and strong could take SEVERAL days of taking the pyridium for it to really kick I would keep taking it for a week...just see what happens...

Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar m tn had a pretty bad UTI, first round of antibiotics didn't work..... then the next one was supposed to work because it was stronger and it was meant for the type of bacteria that i had. I finished the antibiotics and was so relieved but slowly symptoms started to creep back.I can't tell if i'm paranoid or if i still have an infection.. but i have been taking D-mannose and Uva Ursi for like 3-4 days....haven't noticed anything change but i'm hoping it does.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn You're funny - in a nice way though. You probably ate too much yogurt. The jury is out when it comes to yogurt consumption while on an anti-candida diet, since it is dairy but the probiotic value may trump the dairy inclusion. I'd say do a trial, by consuming a more reasonable amount. Did you test it for safety by doing the pulse test? And the other thing NOT to do is trying too much-too fast, because you will definitely will get die-off effects. The rule is: "Easy does it.
Avatar m tn To me the big thing that you have to do that we all had to learn is to trust your doctor. I know it feels like you ar waiting for a bomb to go off but from what you've posted you will be waiting a verrryyyyy long time my friend. I know its hard when anything happens with our hearts we have all been there and done that and i found what works best for me is diversion. When i started feeling something i would find something to do to divert myself so i wouldn't think about my heart.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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!!!!!!!!!!
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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.
