Macrobid how long does it take to work

Common Questions and Answers about Macrobid how long does it take 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 m tn I got diagnosed with epididymitis a week ago and the pain has just now began to leave. Is this common and how long does it normally take for the pain to go completely away along with the swelling? My scrotum hasn't swollen and i've had a ultrasound, blood test, and urine sample and all came back negitive for cancer or a tumor. I'm really frightened about it and hope that this is just epididymitis.
162948 tn?1205256292 I know your period is the lining in your uterus which the mirena keeps it thin so obviously keeps mine to nothing since i dont bleed. I am really concerned now as to how long it is going to take me to concieve. I had a friend who got hers pulled out and got pregnant the next day. Now I really wonder when I should get it taken out. Now or when hes here so we can have sex right away.
Avatar n tn We understood that our 2nd daughter would have to have an additional surgery later, because her megaureter was larger than that of adult, Because of this, as she grew it would not decrease her reflux, as it does in some children, so surgery was necessary.
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 symptoms you describe are non-specific and could be related to several different causes. First, it is unlikely to be MS (multiple sclerosis), given that your MRI was normal and the description of the symptoms is atypical for MS. However, I would recommend that you complete your MS workup, to be sure. I would make sure your MRI included GAD contrast and a saggital flair (specific MRI sequence, your neurologist would know).
Avatar f tn e,, The UTIs are probably contributing to a relapse and docs solution to the UTI is macrobid - aah, and then benadryl to try to quell the reaction to the macrobid! No wonder you are at your wits end. My suggestion is to look the doc dead in the eye and demand another antibiotic for the UTI. Tell he/she you are willing to take your chances on another med. How long does the numbness and loss of function last each time?
Avatar m tn About long term low antibiotics (Macrobid or Bactrim). I have seen that some take it for having pain. Do you know if s o m e patients take it preventive (not having current pain)? By low dose do you know the quantity? Thank you.
Avatar f tn I hope that you won't try to work until you get to feeling better!! PLEASE take care of yourself. That's REALLY good news about your Sister. Hopefully, that will be a LITTLE of the stress lifted off of your shoulders. Do they have any idea how much longer she will be staying in the Hospital? You BOTH are in my Thoughts and Prayers. Sending you my Love.....
147426 tn?1317269232 There's always someone who understands exactly what you're talking about, no matter how crazy it may seem to you. Take some time to get familiar with this forum. I think you'll appreciate all it has to offer.
Avatar n tn Do you think that maybe the antibiotics haven't completely worked and i should wait a few days or do you suggest i go back to the doctor? how long does it usually take to completely cure an infection? I was reading on the net and it said that it takes between seven days and fourteen that true? The doc said that she thought the infection was spreading to my kidneys because i had a low grade fever and flank pain. But i was feeling fine up until two days ago. Any advice?
Avatar n tn It's so frustrating- the choice is almost have sex and get an infection or no sex at all. I also do everything to prevent them but it does no good. Hopefully someone will have an answer.
Avatar n tn At this time it is best for you to work with your doctor to sort this out. I doubt that what you have is an STD. It could be another yeast infection due to all of the antibiotics you have taken. I have little more to add and think it is time to end this thread. No more questions please. Work to sort this out with your docotor.
2109342 tn?1380912575 They would send it to me. I'd take it to my doctor and he'd take the tests they ask for. Then, he'd send them to IGeneX....along with the money he'd get from me. Not bad, except I can't come up with that much money and he won't know how to read the tests when they come back to him. Wondering if I misunderstood some of this, after reading what Mojo had to say about Medicare paying for it? Or, maybe there is another way around this, so I can get the tests done sooner....just not sure.
Avatar n tn ) I tried this out and it does seem to work. The idea is that urinating soon after intercourse flushes out any germs that may be lurking in the urethra and on their way up to cause trouble! Thought it was worth passing this little tip on.
Avatar f tn for the 1st time was very difficult, and it exhausted me and so I have no plans to do that again any time soon. My husband said he'd take care of it as long as I needed him to bless his heart, so that is covered, and like I said I do sit in my chair and just let my little boy climb up to me, but I think I need to find a different way to get him up in his crib for nap and bedtimes, my husband works some crazy shifts so that is/has been my biggest problem as far as really lifting him.
Avatar m tn The Bactrim is working on the kidney pain and I'm off to the health food store to stock up on the sugarless cranberry - (I just know there's a yeast infection waiting out there with my name on it). If the stuff is too bad to drink maybe I'll just bathe in it. It's comforting to know that taking antibiotics doesn't jeopardize the effectiveness of tx -one less thing to lose sleep over!
Avatar f tn I wish you all the luck in the world that this does not turn out to be what you think it may be and that you can continue on as is. Please be patient for a response and keep in touch!
1168718 tn?1464987135 It will be Macrobid 100 mg. everyday. With Aubagio I hope it does n't interfere with all the stuff that I have to take. I'm getting quite depressed about it, and feel like I'm going back into that darn black hole. I'm doing my darndest to try and not be, but stuff keeps comin' up, and I don't know if it is just me, or if it is the Aubagio, as it has been 2 1/2 weeks since I started. Hoping someone may have some insight into this please??
1168718 tn?1464987135 yesterday, and finally they are treating me with IV antiobiotics everyday for 5 or more days, depending on how it responds to the drug. we have o drive for 45 minutes everyday to get to the hospital for the infusion, which takes about 30 minutes or so. I have a team of doctors on this, and pharmacist too, Infectious disease Dr., a Resident Dr. and an IV team because my veins aren't cooperating.
1740498 tn?1328966185 So I do not think this is related to the medication. It started before I went on it and continued after I went off it. Can't wait to fill my prescription once my insurance company approves it!
8071871 tn?1398904296 No I didn't mention it to her at all, guess I never really thought to since it was so long ago and I thought I was over it.... I'm 30 weeks.
Avatar n tn Are you serious? How long did it take? How much did you drink and is there a particular brand you used?
1858011 tn?1319840953 You're not rambling, just processing. It is a lot to take in at once. So glad to hear you made some calls and found a company you like - there are several that specialize in catheter supplies - it is a bigger problem than is openly discussed. You will be so much happier once you can get rid of those hard caths.
Avatar n tn The question I have(sorry it's so long) is, does methadone make an addict act like this, or does he hate himself, I'm trying to get a grasp on anything here, we miss him and love him so much, but I can't help him anymore. When does an addict seek help? Do they have to lose everything? He's lost his kids pretty much, me, and close to losing his job. Guess who's taking care of a 38 year old, his mom, and she will do ANYTHING for him.
167 tn?1374177417 It's very very rare to have it go from one end to the other but it is possible. How was your dysplasia? The HPV usually causes mild-moderate or severe.... Good's totally your call but maybe you could get a 2nd opinion even another dr in the same practice.
Avatar m tn But yeah I will get blood tested, the sex enounter was july 17th, should I wait? I heard it can take awhile to get good results. If I do have something I dont want to give it to my boyfriend, whom Im now in a monogamous relationship with.
798555 tn?1292791151 It would help me to know what might possibly be around the corner for me so I can work thru it. I have to work regardless of how I feel (not an option), so your info will help me prepare getting thru the work day.
Avatar f tn He said not everyone has that with it. He gave me some pills to take (enablex) and said it takes a week or so to work. Well guess what? I am sooooo much better.
