Macrobid Antibiotic Information

Macrobid® (nitrofurantoin monohydrate/macrocrystalline) is a prescription antibiotic used to treat urinary tract infections (UTIs). Specifically, it is approved for treating UTIs caused by Escherichia coli or Staphylococcus saprophyticus bacteria (the most common types of bacteria responsible for UTIs).
 
The medication comes in the form of a capsule and is typically taken twice a day for seven days. Possible side effects include headache, nausea, and flatulence. Before starting treatment with this antibiotic, review the drug's safety information with your healthcare provider. Because Macrobid may not be suitable for everyone, it's important for your healthcare provider to know if you have diabetes, kidney failure, anemia, or any allergies.
