Nitrofurantoin not working

Common Questions and Answers about Nitrofurantoin not working


Avatar n tn Well, I have a long history, so I'll try to make it brief and to the point. My tingling began back in 1988 in my hands and feet. I saw a neurologist who performed many tests which included MRI of brain and cervical and thorasic spine, evoked potentials, EEG - all of which were negative. I also would have on and off an incredible pain in my head - more on my scalp and if you would rub it, it would worsen. He said they were tension headaches - but I can tell you they weren't.
Avatar n tn I am on the Yasmin birth control pill and i was wondering, i was on anitibiotics from the 27 to the 31. Do antibitoics make birth control pills not work? Do you think its okay to have sex friday the 7th? Will my pills be working regularly then? PLease help me.
Avatar m tn The only antibiotic I can see here is the nitrofurantoin (Uribid with nitrofurantoin). That is not that strong of an antibiotic but can work in some cases depending on the bacteria. She should finish the course of antibiotics and if she still has urinary tract pain she can get try taking lots of cranberry juice if she is not diabetic. If she is diabetic she can't drink the juice. Is it possible to find out whether they did further testing on the urine? Does she have a fever?
Avatar m tn I do not want to take antibiotics for the rest of my life, especially since they haven't been working. Thank you for any help.

Avatar m tn that went completely I'm not on nitrofurantoin for the last 2 weeks which have alleviated the symptoms but not entirely. Most of the time the urgency is muted and there is sensitivity down there, unless i drink something acidic and the urgency comes back. I tried potassium citrate to alleviate the acid but that made everything burn. I'm taking creams and pessaries for thrush which seems to get out of control every few days and make the uti feel worse (bladder spasms).
Avatar f tn my UTI getting worse first I take Nitrofurantoin 50mg that med.not working, when I take cipro, I feel better but I don't want the side effect, I have blood test on Monday 17 Nov.

I know I have a major surgery no changes of pain today is my 18 days of surgery the pain are still the same I'am very tired to fight for this disease,when I can feel better?

Avatar f tn I was then taken off the ditropan and put on nitrofurantoin and phenazopyridine, which did not make my symptoms worse, but did not improve them either. I was then put on ditropan XL and just started today. I have no idea whether or not this will work, but am not confident and am getting very depressed. I cannot have sex with my husband, cannot rest, cannot relax. I have no other burning, no pain, just the frequency. Why would ditropan stop working two days into treatment?
Avatar n tn Lamictal 400, Nitrofurantoin, Yasmin and Folic Acid supplements. Are there any avenues that I can explore, or at least suggest to my Urologist? I live in a very rural area, hours from a "big city" med center. I would very much like to stay out of the emergency room as it is literally emptying my pockets. I read of a development for a vacine? How long until this is available? If there are studies I can participate in, whom can I contact?
Avatar f tn The doc also treated her with antibiotics for a UTI (Nitrofurantoin). Two urine cultures only showed lactobacillus with the rest of the urinalysis shown below. After a week on the antibiotics, her back began to feel better. With that said, after having sex with her again, and ejaculating inside, she seemed to itch again a week later but her feminine each cream cleared it up. From my observation, it seemed like the two episodes of her itching was from me ejaculating inside her.
1102290 tn?1278503553 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.

Avatar f tn I wipe front to back, I void after sex, I shower daily, I keep dry down there, I drink nothing but water (no caffeine, no alcohol, nothing), I'm taking cranberry pills, and I am on nitrofurantoin daily but the stupid things keep on coming back. What else could it be? Is there some other test I should ask for? Thank you.
11649518 tn?1425147660 I tried to look it up, could find nothing about it in the literature about Harvoni but that doesn't mean that the Specialty Pharmacy hasn't gotten new information that is not out there yet. That is what happened to me. I was taking something I should not have been, I somehow fell through the cracks.
Avatar f tn This is day is day 3 of the pills and i was wondering how long until it starts working? i am not in nearly as much pain as I was, but the pain with urination is still there slightly and get worse at night.
Avatar n tn With a high Alk. Phos. it could be gallstones blocking the duct in the liver...but not knowing his symptoms or history I cant guess nor am I a doctor! But hope this info below helps you and dont let it scare you...your doctor and nurses at the hospital should be able to give you answers to your questions.
Avatar n tn It's really getting her down and I feel completely helpless as to how I can help her further. She's had some different anti-biotics over this time (Trimethoprim/Amoxicillin/Nitrofurantoin) but it only seem to help her out temporarily, and furthermore I'm not entirely sure that they aren't making her health more of a problem. Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks, Harry.
Avatar f tn I had this test and a SED test. My SED was 7 and my ANA just came back negative. The doctor will not provide me with any numbers on that. I'm on a search for what's wrong with me so just looking for any insight on this. Thanks!
Avatar n tn A couple of times I stopped driving when I was on the road and parked somewhere because I ran out of breath and could not concentrate on the road. At times I also burped a lot and had a strange taste in my mouth. It tasted like gas. When I burped I tasted it and smelt it coming out from my mouth. I told my parents and they drove my car for a week. They told me they felt and did not smell anything. They said the car was fine. I drove my car again and felt the same thing.
Avatar f tn I'd had these loads of times before so the doctor was confident enough to prescribe me with Nitrofurantoin for 3 days. After the second day I started experiencing stabbing pain in all my muscles, with nausea and dizziness. This stopped a day or so after I discontinued the antibiotic. Noticed a rash on my back. I still had signs of a kidney infection though, so I was prescribed Trimethoprim. This is something I've had previously and had no problems with.
Avatar m tn I've visited a therapist for 6 weeks to try to relieve the anxiety--but, it's not working. I've tried various sleep and anti-anxiety drugs and I hate them, now I take nothing. I never felt worse taking them. I feel I am on my own and on a journey to an early death.
Avatar f tn A liver biopsy is sort of a reality check to see if the way you've been caring for your liver is working or not. You seem intelligent but in denial. Liver biopsy is quick and painless and the risks are very little -- far less than not coming to terms with what is actually going on inside.
Avatar m tn This is so scary also feeling a lot of shooting pain in my body in back legs and arms not sure if this from valtrex or not because I heard valtrex only stays in your system for 2-3 hours. Is there anything you make of my other symptom- feeling like I have a bladder infection and not getting my period? Any additional views you could provide would be greatly appreciated this is really weighing down heavy on me.
Avatar m tn It is indeed hard to figure out what is the right path, and when to change the approach if it seems to not be working. No hard and fast answers, so re-evaluation all along the way is good -- but without making yourself crazy with second-guessing. I don't think there is a hard and fast line when early Lyme becomes chronic Lyme, so I wouldn't worry too much about that.
5264083 tn?1404669334 So glad I'm not going CRAZY!! I had a UTI right before Christmas, went to the ER, and was put on an antibiotic. After taking it for a full week I wasn't much better, so I followed up with my Dr. She was puzzled at what antibiotic they had given me and wasn't surprised I was still hurting. So another full round of a second antibiotic. I'm about 7 days late but feel like it's going to happen any time now. My husband's had a vasectomy, but I was starting to wonder if it had grown back.
Avatar n tn I i to had all those test and there are a few areas of concern but not all of those are systems are related to the keflex.I have not had any of my problems until i took the keflex. Please be careful with this drug.
Avatar n tn I actually do a fair bit of stationary biking in the gym. However, given my current condition I do not go to the gym often anymore. Interestingly enough, I have not been able to fully recall the timeline over which my symptoms developed. It may have started with the rash. However, I also recall some minor burning in my abdomen, on top of my thighs, and some odd penile sensations (including some difficulty with erection/climax) prior to the rash.
Avatar n tn This pain did not radiate anywhere but only within a specific point. Then this same stabbing sensation occurred half way up to the first knuckle of my right middle finger about 30 minutes later. Then immediately following this finger pain I felt pain in my right foot at the joint of my middle toe. I have no idea what causes this and both of my siblings report similar type of pain issues. Friends think this is quite strange.
Avatar n tn This regimen helps for about 3 to 4 hours but it always returns. I took Lunesta for a couple of times but not 2 nights in a row. Thats the only common thread I can see. Hope this helps.
