Is Nitrofur Mac 50 Good For Boils
Not likely: Boils, more often than not, are caused by staphylococci or other gram-positive organisms and Nitrofurantoin is not the therapy of choice, and is predominantly used for urinary tract infection.

Will this antibiotic work for my UTI even though I was already on it once and it didn't work? I am 9 weeks pregnant and I have a uti. I was put on nitrofurantoin mono/mac 100mg twice a day for 7 days. I felt better for a few days, but the infection return
Be confident that your doctor is doing the right thing. The urine culture that was done shows which antibiotics will work and which will not against the bacteria that is causing the infection. If you were put on Nitrofurantoin again then I am sure the culture showed that the bacteria was sensitive to it. Recurrent uti's are very common in pregnancy, and the fact that you took the antibiotic before does not mean it will not work this time.
If you need more reassurance or explanation don't hesitate to contact your doctor.
Take care. ...Read more
Brown discharge on day 3 of nitrofurantoin mono mac for UTI on day periods due on birth control pills no cramps. Dull back ache normal?
See answer: Nitrofurantion taken for 5-7 days usually a good antibiotic for a simple bladder infection but not a good choice if kidney infection is suspected (fever, chills, flank pain, nausea, feeling sick).

Many: Nitrofurantoin is a urinary antiseptic that does not achieve adequate tissue levels to treat an invasive infection. It has many severe potential toxicities including nausia and vomitting that occur in 17-39% of people taking it, severe lung reactions, hepatitis, hemolytic anemia and peripheral neuropathy. Because of the above I rarely prescribe this drug. ...Read more
About same, but...: Both are very safe; the frequency of serious adverse reactions is probably about the same. However, nitrofurantoin is less likely to make your body's bacteria resistant to antibiotics, making it harder to treat future infections. Assuming you're being treated for a urinary infection, nitrofurantoin is preferred if active against the bacteria causing it. Discuss with your doctor. ...Read more
