What is Nitrofurantoin?
We are often asked “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
Bladder Infection Antibiotics Nitrofurantoin
The antibiotic Nitrofurantoin isn’t the only way to treat a bladder infection. A number of assessments have concluded that 25-42 percent of simple urinary tract infections can clear on their own. A range of home remedies can help speed up recovery.
Still, complicated bladder infections require medical assessment and treatment. These include symptoms and factors such as a swollen prostate or the slowing of urine. Other conditions such as illnesses that affect the immune system; HIV, lupus, cardiac disease can also play a factor.
Several at home remedies can be used to help reduce and treat the infection, here are a few –
- Staying hydrated, this helps the body remove the waste and dilutes the urine.
- 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
Nitrofurantoin For Kidney Infection
Nitrofurantoin medicine can be used to treat a kidney infection. Usually Nitrofurantoin tablets/capsules are prescribed that last between seven and 14 days. Generally you’ll start to feel better just a short while after the treatment has been started and the kidney infection should be completely gone by the end of week two.
If there are no signs of improvement 24 hours after the Nitrofurantoin medicine has been started, contact your doctor. This is not a condition we treat and should be treat by your own gp.
Nitrofurantoin For UTI
Nitrofurantoin tablets can be used to treat a UTI. Usually the antibiotic Nitrofurantoin for UTI is prescribed. Normally, you’ll start to feel better just a short while after the treatment has been started three days in adults and two days in children. Even if you start to feel you have recovered, it’s important to complete the whole course of antibiotic Nitrofurantoin. Although in some peoples cases they may have a severe UTI and will probably be referred to hospital where more tests and treatment can be administered.
Sometimes the UTI can come back after the treatment has been finished, therefore your doctor may prescribe a longer course.
Lastly, if the UTI keeps reoccurring and you need regular treatment, your doctor may give you a repeat prescription.
Nitrofurantoin or Macrobid
Nitrofurantoin and Macrobid are antibiotics used to treat UTIs and bladder infections.
Macrobid is a modified release of nitrofurantoin; therefore it’s released slower than nitrofurantoin would be.

Here are some other alternative treatments for Cystitis –
Cystitis is inflammation of the bladder, usually caused by a bladder infection.
It’s a common type of urinary tract infection (UTI), particularly in women, and is usually more of a nuisance than a cause for serious concern.
Mild cases will often get better by themselves within a few days. But some people experience episodes of cystitis frequently and may need regular or long-term treatment.
There’s also a chance that cystitis could lead to a more serious kidney infection in some cases, so it’s important to seek medical advice if your symptoms don’t improve.
Signs and symptoms of cystitis
pain, burning or stinging when you pee
needing to pee more often and urgently than normal
urine that’s dark, cloudy or strong smelling
pain low down in your tummy
feeling generally unwell, achy, sick and tired
See a GP if:
you’re not sure whether you have cystitis
your symptoms don’t start to improve within 3 days
you get cystitis frequently
you have severe symptoms, such as blood in your urine, a fever or pain in your side
you’re pregnant and have symptoms of cystitis
you’re a man and have symptoms of cystitis
your child has symptoms of cystitis
A GP should be able to diagnose cystitis by asking about your symptoms.
They may test a sample of your urine for bacteria to help confirm the diagnosis.
What causes cystitis?
Most cases are thought to occur when bacteria that live harmlessly in the bowel or on the skin get into the bladder through the urethra (the tube that carries urine out of your body).
It’s not always clear how this happens.
But some things can increase your risk of getting it, including:
wiping your bottom from back to front after going to the toilet
having a urinary catheter (a thin tube inserted into the urethra to drain the bladder)
being younger than 1 or older than 75
using a diaphragm for contraception
having a weakened immune system
Women may get cystitis more often than men because their anus (back passage) is closer to their urethra and their urethra is much shorter, which means bacteria may be able to get into the bladder more easily.
Treatments for cystitis
If you have been having mild symptoms for less than 3 days or you have had cystitis before and don’t feel you need to see a GP, you may want to treat your symptoms at home or ask a pharmacist for advice.
Until you’re feeling better, it may help to:
take paracetamol or ibuprofen
drink plenty of water
hold a hot water bottle on your tummy or between your thighs
avoid having sex
wipe from front to back when you go to the toilet
gently wash around your genitals with a skin-sensitive soap
Some people believe that cranberry drinks and products that reduce the acidity of their urine (such as sodium bicarbonate or potassium citrate) will help.
If you see a GP and they diagnose you with cystitis, you’ll usually be prescribed a course of antibiotics to treat the infection. These should start to have an effect within a day or 2.
