Can you die from an overdose of nitrofurantoin?
Asked by Caren Bobb 4 months ago.
Nitrofurantoin: Adverse effects Nitrofurantoin can cause nausea and vomiting, fever, rash, hypersensitivity pneumonitis. When given for long periods of time, nitrofurantoin can cause progressive pulmonary interstitial fibrosis. All these side effects are much more common in the elderly. Patients should be informed that nitrofurantoin colours urine a dark orange-brown; this is completely harmless. Neonates (babies up to the age of one month) have immature enzyme systems in their red blood cells (glutathione instability) and nitrofurantoin must therefore not be used because it can cause haemolytic anaemia. For the same reason, nitrofurantoin should not be given to pregnant women after 38 weeks of pregnancy, or who are about to give birth. Nitrofurantoin is contraindicated in patients with decreased renal function (CrCl < 60ml/min) due to systemic accumulation and subtherapeutic levels reached in the urinary tract.  Precautions Nitrofurantoin must be taken with food and can cause bleeding in the stomach, vomiting and other gastrointestinal disruptions if these warnings are not adhered to. Nitrofurantoin is contraindicated in patients with glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency because of risk of extravascular hemolysis resulting in anemia.

The most common side effects noted with nitrofurantoin are gastrointestinal, including nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, diarrhea, and abdominal pain. The side effects also can be minimized by using a lower dose (with the physician's consent) or by taking the drug with food or milk. Headache is the most common nervous system effect. Nitrofurantoin can cause serious lung injury. The reaction can occur within hours of the start of treatment if the patient has previously received nitrofurantoin or within a few days of starting nitrofurantoin for the first time. Symptoms include difficult breathing, chills, fever, chest pain, and cough. In other persons, lung injury may occur after approximately a month of treatment. Symptoms include difficult breathing, rapid breathing, and cough. Fortunately, the symptoms usually resolve within a week if the medication is stopped. In still other persons, lung injury may not develop until after several months or years of therapy. Unless it is recognized and treated, this delayed lung injury can result in permanent lung damage that remains even after the drug is stopped. Allergic skin reactions also can occur, including some which are severe. A condition known as peripheral neuropathy (damage to the nerves of the arms and legs), may occur with nitrofurantoin therapy, most commonly causing tingling in the extremities. The condition can become severe and is more likely to occur in patients with diabetes mellitus, vitamin B deficiency or general debilitation. A type of anemia (reduced red blood cell count) called hemolytic anemia can occur during therapy with nitrofurantoin. This reaction occurs most frequently in persons with a deficiency of an enzyme called glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase which is very important to the survival of red blood cells. Nitrofurantoin also can cause liver damage leading to jaundice or a form of hepatitis which can be fatal. Elevated liver enzymes indicate liver damage and are a reason to stop the drug.

most people will say if the doc gave it to you it is safe but i think your concern is very wise. i do not know about that particular medication but i do know all medicine has some side affect and just because a doc gives it does not make it 100% safe. personally i would try getting rid of the uti by flushing your system first. such as drinking lots and lots of water and cranberry juice. if that does not work you may need to take the medicine. and from just taking it the one time it probably will have no ill effects but for possible future uti's i would definitely continue to drink water and cranberry juice as a preventative. i was prescribed codeine for a chest cold and told it was completely safe but come to find out it had never been tested on pregnant women and therefore how could they truly know. i had taken it and for 2 days and had some really strange and scary experiences with my pregnancy. i do not know if it was harmful considering i have not had the child as of yet. i am 7 months but all seems well since i quit taking the medicine. anyway if your instincts are telling you not to take it then do not take it. follow your gut feelings they are usually accurate.

no you are able to truly desire to tell you the way lots weight you are able to desire to benefit. as long as you're ingesting healthful ingredients and doing what's physically powerful - then your weight could desire to truly no longer be a controversy. the bigger question is that if the toddler is healthful. With my first toddler I lost 15 pounds interior the 1st 2 months and only gained 5 pounds back. My toddler replaced into on the traditional levels all the way via my being pregnant. With my daughter i replaced into on mattress relax for 7 months and gained eighty pounds - she additionally greater at general fees. So do no longer enable absolutely everyone make you sense like a bad mom on your weight as long as you're doing the main suitable issues. I felt like a bad mom the entire being pregnant of my daughter because of the fact i replaced into having great time issues - we theory we've been going to lose her for various months. It replaced right into a bad deal yet I did what my physician mentioned and she or he replaced into born rather healthful. once you're a small lady then 30 to 40 pounds could placed you at extra possibility for different themes like intense blood tension. i'm no longer a small lady and 30 to 40 pounds could be ok for me yet eighty replaced into thank you to lots. even with the undeniable fact that when you consider that Carly replaced into progressing usually the physician mentioned it replaced into ok.

Your doctor obviously knows that you are pregnant, and we have faith in our doctors because of the oath they take to first do no harm. I don't think he would have given you a medicine that would knowingly cause harm to your baby....especially since all medications have potentially dangerous side effects. However, if you have serious doubts, call your ob/gyn and ask them, or try calling a pharmacy and talking to them. They are very knowlegable about drugs and their side effects.

It is a definite safe tab for you and your baby. About nitrofurantoin, Prevention and treatment of urinary tract infections caused by susceptible gram-negative and some gram-positive organisms including E. coli, Klebsiella, Enterobacter, Enterococa, and S. aureus; Pseudomonas, Serratia, and most species of Proteus are generally resistant to nitrofurantoin. About side effects, none, a safe drug during pregnancy. Details, while it is safe. Urinary tract infections are common during pregnancy, and the most common causative organism is Escherichia coli. Asymptomatic bacteriuria can lead to the development of cystitis or pyelonephritis. All pregnant women should be screened for bacteriuria and subsequently treated with antibiotics such as nitrofurantoin, sulfisoxazole or cephalexin. Ampicillin should no longer be used in the treatment of asymptomatic bacteriuria because of high rates of resistance. Pyelonephritis can be a life-threatening illness, with increased risk of perinatal and neonatal morbidity. Recurrent infections are common during pregnancy and require prophylactic treatment. Pregnant women with urinary group B streptococcal infection should be treated and should receive intrapartum prophylactic therapy. (Am Fam Physician 2000;61:713-21.) Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are frequently encountered in the family physician's office. UTIs account for approximately 10 percent of office visits by women, and 15 percent of women will have a UTI at some time during their life. In pregnant women, the incidence of UTI can be as high as 8 percent.1,2 This article briefly examines the pathogenesis and bacteriology of UTIs during pregnancy, as well as patient-oriented outcomes. We review the diagnosis and treatment of asymptomatic bacteriuria, acute cystitis and pyelonephritis, plus the unique issues of group B streptococcus and recurrent infections. Pathogenesis Pregnant women are at increased risk for UTIs. Beginning in week 6 and peaking during weeks 22 to 24, approximately 90 percent of pregnant women develop ureteral dilatation, which will remain until delivery (hydronephrosis of pregnancy). Increased bladder volume and decreased bladder tone, along with decreased ureteral tone, contribute to increased urinary stasis and ureterovesical reflux.1 Additionally, the physiologic increase in plasma volume during pregnancy decreases urine concentration. Up to 70 percent of pregnant women develop glycosuria, which encourages bacterial growth in the urine. Increases in urinary progestins and estrogens may lead to a decreased ability of the lower urinary tract to resist invading bacteria. This decreased ability may be caused by decreased ureteral tone or possibly by allowing some strains of bacteria to selectively grow.1,3 These factors may all contribute to the development of UTIs during pregnancy. Bacteriology The organisms that cause UTIs during pregnancy are the same as those found in nonpregnant patients. Escherichia coli accounts for 80 to 90 percent of infections. Other gram-negative rods such as Proteus mirabilis and Klebsiella pneumoniae are also common. Gram-positive organisms such as group B streptococcus and Staphylococcus saprophyticus are less common causes of UTI. Group B streptococcus has important implications in the management of pregnancy and will be discussed further. Less common organisms that may cause UTI include enterococci, Gardnerella vaginalis and Ureaplasma ureolyticum.1,4,5 Diagnosis and Treatment of UTIs UTIs have three principle presentations: asymptomatic bacteriuria, acute cystitis and pyelonephritis. The diagnosis and treatment of UTI depends on the presentation. Asymptomatic Bacteriuria Significant bacteriuria may exist in asymptomatic patients. In the 1960s, Kass6 noted the subsequent increased risk of developing pyelonephritis in patients with asymptomatic bacteriuria. Significant bacteriuria has been historically defined as finding more than 105 colony-forming units per mL of urine.7 Recent studies of women with acute dysuria have shown the presence of significant bacteriuria with lower colony counts. This has not been studied in pregnant women, and finding more than 105 colony-forming units per mL of urine remains the commonly accepted standard. Asymptomatic bacteriuria is common, with a prevalence of 10 percent during pregnancy.6,8 Thus, routine screening for bacteriuria is advocated. Untreated asymptomatic bacteriuria leads to the development of symptomatic cystitis in approximately 30 percent of patients and can lead to the development of pyelonephritis in up to 50 percent.6 Asymptomatic bacteriuria is associated with an increased risk of intrauterine growth retardation and low-birth-weight infants.9 The relatively high prevalence of asymptomatic bacteriuria during pregnancy, the significant consequences for women and for the pregnancy, plus the ability to avoid sequelae with treatment, justify screening pregnant women for bacteriuria.

Is there any drug or food interactions you need to be aware of while taking nitrofurantoin-micro?
Asked by Amie Dungy 4 months ago.
Nitrofurantoin is an antibiotic that fights bacteria in the body. Call your doctor at once if you have a serious side effect such as: feeling short of breath (even with mild exertion), fever, chills, cough, chest pain, yellowing of the skin or eyes; pale skin, unusual weakness, numbness or tingling, or diarrhea that is watery or bloody. Avoid using antacids without your doctor's advice Take each dose with a full glass of water. Take nitrofurantoin with food or milk Before taking nitrofurantoin, tell your doctor if you are taking: magnesium salicylate (Doan's Pills, Mobidin, Momentum); choline magnesium salicylate (Tricosal, Trilisate); probenecid (Benemid); or sulfinpyrazone (Anturane). Answered by Florence Feimster 4 months ago.
Probenecid may increase the effect of Nitrofurantoin and too much can possibly cause toxicity. Space the dosing with antacids by at least 3 hours apart. Take with meals to slow the rate of absorption and decrease side effects. Answered by Scottie Bambeck 4 months ago.

Can dogs take nitrofurantoin?
Asked by Francis Russian 4 months ago.
No. Dogs should not take Nitrofurantoin, Furadantin, Macrobid, Macrodantin, Urantoin. or anything similar. That is dangerous and can kill your dog. Why would you even want to give your dog that anyway? It is usually used in treating urinary tract infection, it is often used against E. coli. Is it because its an antibiotic and you think it will treat a infection on a dog? It won't help your dog, only make it worse. Baytril is a common dog antibiotic given by vets. If its an infection ask your vet to prescribe that or another type of antibiotic for dogs. Don't do something your not sure of. But before you go requesting medicine always take your dog into the vet to make sure it gets the proper diagnoses. Answered by Merrilee Gruben 4 months ago.

Did she pick a good med for me? She did look at my urine so it's not like she totally guessed at what it was like. So, it's been 5 hours since I took the first capsule and the only thing I'm feeling is tired. I have no gastro problems. Does this mean I'm out of the woods as far as nasty gastro side effects? If I were going to get them, would I have gotten them by now? Thanks. I need all the encouragment I can get because I get a bit nervous when taking the antibiotics. Oh also, is nitrofurantoin in a class of nasty ,powerful antibiotics? I sure hope not. I looked it up on wikipedia which puts it in the class of "others." Thanks again. Answered by Aiko Discenza 4 months ago.
Nitrofurantoin is very effective against e coli in the urinary tract. It is also a category B drug which means, "No evidence of risk in humans-Adequate, well controlled studies in pregnant women have not shown increased risk of fetal abnormalities despite adverse findings in animals, or In the absence of adequate human studies, animal studies show no fetal risk. The chance of fetal harm is remote, but remains a possibility." If you are not having side effects yet, that is a good sign. Keep taking the med and see what happens. This drug is not in the class of antibiotics that are toxic and given only to people who are critically ill. An example of that kind of drug is Vancomycin. Answered by Daria Isley 4 months ago.
Nitrofurantoin generally has very few side effects. It's an unusual antibiotic that doesn't really get absorbed through your body, almost all of it just goes straight into the urine and then out. It sounds like you're just coincidentally sick with something else! The nausea especially would be more obvious if it was due to the medication, antibiotics tend to cause nausea within an hour of taking them. Unless for the first day and a half you took it with food, then took it on an empty stomach before getting sick... Taking antibiotics with food helps alot with nausea as long as it's okay to eat with that particular antibiotic, and nitrofurantoin IS one you're supposed to take with food. If it gets alot worse though, you might possibly be having an unusual reaction and should see a doctor. But it's pretty unlikely! Answered by Hal Ringuette 4 months ago.
The treatment for urinary tract infection starts with a series of consultation with your doctor. A laboratory inspection of urine is required. For milder cases of this disease, the use of antibacterial drugs is sufficient. Examples of such drugs are Bactrim, Amoxil, and Cipro. Doctors usually recommend that these drugs are taken within a couple of weeks in order to suppress the infection in the urethra and prevent the kidneys from being affected. Other drugs that can be used to treat UTI are Periostat and Achromycin. Additionally, patients suffering from urinary tract infection are advised not to soak in the bath tub as the water and the scents placed in it could further irritate the urethra. Take a shower instead of using the bath tub. It is also important to urinate often if you have UTI to eliminate the bacteria. Keeping it in may exacerbate the condition as urine is mainly composed of wastes. Answered by Caleb Mccoyle 4 months ago.

Asked by Arianne Mortell 4 months ago.
Katie Edel, As you rightly suppose, nitrofurantoin is an antibiotic used for treating and preventing urinary tract infections caused by certain bacteria - Bladder Infection caused by Enterobacter, Infection of the Urinary Tract caused by Enterococcus, Urinary Tract Infection due to E. Coli Bacteria, Urinary Tract Infection caused by Klebsiella Bacteria, Urinary Tract Infection caused by Staphylococcus Aureus. Nitrofurantoin Oral may also be used to treat Staphylococcus Saprophyticus Infection of Urinary Tract, Urinary Tract Infection Prevention. Apart from the fact that it is not really suitable for a sore throat, there are three points that I would raise at this moment. 1. Why would you have a surplus of this medication? If medications are stopped before the stipulated time, the causative organism that the antibiotic was prescribed for, may well not have been eliminated and if it should infect again, it may be resistant to that medication. 2. If you use a medication always check the “Use By” date. 3. When a medication is ‘left over’ always return it to the pharmacy for disposal.
