Nitrofur Macr 100 Mg Is This For Prostate Infections?

Gayle Says:

My husband has a prostate infection and this antibiotic has been prescribed.
He was on a different antibiotic for 2 weeks that was 500 mg. the doctor
says that it is almost cleared but has prescribed nitrofur macr 100 mg for 2 more weeks. Will this clear it up all together?

Hi, Gayle! How is your husband feeling?

Nitrofurantoin is an effective antibiotic and if another was needed, then it's normal for the doctor to want to switch, instead of using the same one again. Doing so helps prevent the development of antibiotic resistant bacteria.

He may experience side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea.
