Can I drink alcohol while taking Nitrofurantoin 100mg for a UTI? I wanna drink this weekend and my last day to take this antibiotic is Saturday.
No contraindication: However, since alcohol use may be associated with sexual disinhibition, and "athletic" or vigorous sexual activity is associated with UTI's in women, would exercise caution on that front. Alcohol does reduce our body's immune response to infections, and does have some interactions with some antibiotics (taking it with Flagyl can be dangerous), there is no problem with nitrofurantoin. ...Read more

You can start a broad spectrum A at first and if the bacterium is resistant to it, it can be switched to one that is effective in treating it. Good luck. ...Read more
UTI: If someone has a uti, finding out which antibiotics the bacteria is susceptible is very important. This allows us to use the best antibiotic on the patient. Using broad spectrum antibiotics or the wrong antibiotics can lead to resistant bacteria which is much harder to kill. It requires very power antibiotics to kill resistant bacteria and leads to the so called "super bugs" like MRSA and vre. ...Read more
Antibiotics taken for UTI but traces of ph, pro and leu are showing and I don't understand the colours on the UTI stick?
Maybe: The use of certain antibiotics can suppress or alter one's native bacterial flora. For example, many women will experience a vaginal fungal infection following the use of certain antibiotics because their resident bacteria have been reduced by the antibiotic. I believe it is rare to experience symptoms of a cystitis from the use of antibiotics, however. ...Read more
No best: Many are excellent such as Bactrim (trimethoprim-sulfa), Macrodantin and cipro (ciprofloxacin).

That would involve getting a microbiology culture & sensitivity test done on the urine. ...Read more
Macrobid: This antibiotic is used quite commonly for treating Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs). The doctor should have a culture report that shows what antibiotics will work against the bacteria found in the urine.

See doc if no better ...Read more
