Alcohol Abuse: Nitrofurantoin is used to treat Urinary tract infections. Both Nitrofurantoin and Alcohol may cause Headache, unsteadiness, dizziness, and tiredness. Let the Wise Woman within you ask: • If you have above symptoms and decide if you want to use alcohol • If you have depression, anxiety, blackouts, DUI • Need to see Psychiatrist for Alcohol use, Tolerance, or Dependence ; Therapy • AA Meetings
