My blood pressure, which is normally low, became elevated and I was rushed by ambulance to the ER after taking only 5 capsules. Tests were run and I was told that it is possible that I am having an adverse reaction to the medication. I am still very weak with moderately high blood pressure. I have been nauseated off and on and my last capsule was 5 days ago. I was treated for a UTI two weeks ago w ...

Unfortunately I had to have my colon & bladder removed but developed an e coli infection in what was left of my urinary tract. I used Macrobid 2x a day for 10 days & was retested. The infection persisted. Then I took it again 2x day for 10 days plus 1x day for a month. I am now being switched to Bactrim & hoping for better results. Have had massive hair loss on this medication!

I ended up at urgent care after 3 doses of Macrobid. Dr. thought I had Pancreatitis, a gall bladder issue or was passing a kidney stone. The right side under my rib caused me unbelievable pain, which is why I sought a doctor's care. After blood tests, ultrasound and x-rays, they found nothing wrong with me, however, they did tell me to go off the pills. Too late. I quit after 3. I spent 3 days ...

Until I was on Macrobid, I would be given other drugs such as Bactrim and Cipro. I am allergic to penicillin which is the old fashioned treatment. Macrobid to me is a God send! I get urinal tract and bladder inflammations from intercourse regardless of my care and cleanliness. I have had no side affects and results are quick. I was told I could take it daily if I wanted to but I only take it as a ...

I am shocked and so sad for the pain this drug has caused so many. This drug saved me from a UTI. No antibiotic worked for my UTI. So I was sent to urinary specialist and he gave me this medicine to take for infection, about a 10 day cycle at 3 pills a day and then put me on a maintenance dose for prevention when I had intercourse. I stayed on prevention for about a year using only after intercourse. It worked very well for me. Never had a side effect at all. I'm glad I read these reviews cause my sister has been having UTI she can't get rid of and she's 69 and a heart patient and I was going to recommend this to her to ask her Doc about trying. Now I don't think I'll do that. I took mine in the 1980's. No problem. But I don't want to risk my sister having any of these side effects. Guess I was just fortunate it worked so well for me.
