What is Nitrofurantoin (Macrobid) and How to Take It

Nitrofurantin is prescribed to treat a urinary tract infection. Nitrofurantoin is classified as a nitrofuran antibiotic. Commonly it is available under the brand names such as Macrobid, Macrodantin or Furadantin.

Nitrofurantoin mode of action involves stopping the bacteria by interfering with processes, such as cell wall formation and synthesis of DNA and RNA. As the process can no longer take place, the bacteria die. Nitrofurantoin specifically targets the bacteria in the urine and is quite solute in urine. Similar to Macrodantin, Macrobid pills contain two forms of Nitrofurantoin (active ingredient). This combination mainly aids in the release of the drug into the body.

Nitrofurantoin dosage for UTI is 100 mg every 12 hours for 7 days. Nitrofurantoin should be taken with food and water to avoid undesirable effects and maximise absorption

Although, the duration of treatment can vary and depends on the severity and type of infection. Always follow instructions, take the prescribed dosage, and complete the entire course of medication. Nitrofurantoin in pregnancy is not prescribed at the end of pregnancy/last trimester to prevent any harm to the baby.
