If I am allergic to sulfa can I take nitrofur mac? I was prescribed nitrofur mac 100mg but realized i probably couldnt take it because im allergic to sulfa. Need to know if i can.

In brief: Probably

Sulfa allergy is strictly to the sulfa antibiotic family.
You should be fine to take the nitrofurantoin.
