What is Nitrofurantoin?
Nitrofurantoin or Macrobid is a prescription medicine which is used to treat and prevent infections of the bladder (cystitis), kidney and other parts of the urinary tract (UTIs).
When Nitrofurantoin is taken, the body filters it out of your blood and into your urine. This is especially helpful if you have a urinary tract infection because it centralizes around the site of infection. However, this means that Nitrofurantoin won’t do anything for other types of infection.
Nitrofurantoin or Macrobid is available on prescription and either comes as capsules, tablets or a liquid that is consumed.
There are three types of Nitrofurantoin available –
- Furadantin, microcrystalline form
- Macrodantin, macrocrystalline
- Macrobid, a continued release of macrocrystalline that is taken twice a day

- Urinate when the need arises, don’t hold it in. This reduces the amount of time bacteria is exposed to cells in the urinary tract.
- Probiotics can help keep the urinary tract free from bad bacteria. A specific group called lactobacilli
