 3  Suspected UTI Mentally disconnected, weird feeling first 2 days, weak/faint feeling, nauseous feeling (stomach) first 2 days, very hot hands (a little bit of tingling and hands started to hurt) I went two weeks without taking antibiotics since I was terrified, thinking of all the sides effects. I previously went on Bactrim a year back for ten days and felt ill for 6 months, so was terrified to even think about antibiotics. However, my UTI wasn't getting better, and back pain was getting worse. The doctor at Urgent Care urged me to take it telling me how horrible it is if it goes to your kidneys and you get a blood infection. I actually went to Urgent Care twice and they gave me another antibiotic CIPRO which I was even more terrified to take because I read it breaks down your joints. So I ended up forcing myself to take macrobid (the milder antibiotic) of the two. Immediately after taking the first pill, I ended up almost having a panic attack thinking I was having an allergic reaction. I was expecting to get much worse side effects based on the reviews here, however, it wasn't that bad. My anxiety about it was probably worse. Mainly I was concerned about the "fatal lung side effect" and "nerve damage" on the slip of paper that comes with the antibiotic. However, I am ok. I will do everything in my power not to get a UTI again. I bought D-Mannose powder, and will drink apple cider vinegar and a lot of water, and even bought feminine wash. PS. My Urine Culture was negative, and very little amount of leukocytes in my urine when I went to Urgent Care, so I thought it might not be a UTI and will just go away. I should have just taken the F 26 5 days

 1  UTI Since taking this I have been experiencing severe depression and fatigue. I did not make the connection until reading the comments on this site. I had taken Cipro for a previous UTI and that brought on Vertigo which I still have, months later. I am allergic to Sulfa drugs so this was the only choice for my recurring UTI. However, I am not going to take any more - the depression is debilitating. Would rather deal with a UTI!! It's very frustrating that there is not something else out there that does not have side effects or at least mild ones. F 64 10 days

 1  UTI 10-14-14 Took my first pill late Monday night. Woke up following morning feeling nauseous and not well at all. Went to work only to return home at 10 a.m. . Got home just in time because I felt horrible. Low grade fever, chills, felt like I had been beat with a baseball bat,,,even on the bottom of my feet! Flank and back pain. I thought I had a virus. It lasted about 12 hours. Didn't take again until Wednesday night because of how I felt and the same thing happened only quicker. I wish I had known it was the Macrobid and not a virus!! Three weeks later I'm still nauseous when I eat and having stomach problems. I know it's from that medicine. Horrible flank and back pain.. still. I have to agree with the other posters when they say it's poison. DON't take this medicine!! F 43 2 days

 1  UTI No appetite; had to force myself to eat a couple bites a day, bad muscle aches esp. in hips and knees, extreme fatigue, and a rash that eventually covered most of my body, swollen fingers. Worse, I have permanent nerve damage in most of my fingers. Two of which are totally unusable because of extreme numbness and extreme pain; the left pointer and middle fingers. My right middle finger is real numb and painful, too. My two left "peace" fingers hurt even if one of my cat's tails rub against them, or their bodies of course! This hurts enough to wake me out of a deep sleep even. Ditto, for pulling a blouse over my hand. I have to make a fist to protect my hand as much as possible. This sends me to the roof. I cannot clip or file my nails without extreme pain. I can no longer touch type for pain and numbness reasons. My life is almost reduced to a hellish existence worrying if someone will run into my fingers, grab my hands, or even brush against my fingers. NEVER, I MEAN NEVER TAKE MACROBID FOR ANY REASON. I wish I would of checked the side effects online before swallowing one of those POISONOUS pills. Please e-mail me if you know a lawyer that will take my case. I have not found one, yet. I visited the hospital 3 and a half days after stopping. They tested for blood clots in my left arm and hand, and tested for pinched nerves. Double negative, it is that Macrobid's fault. My liver readings were so bad they wanted to keep me overnight until after HOURS I washed out enough. They asked me if I drank, but I drank nothing that month and little the month earlier. I was at the hosp. on July 14, 2014. F 53 4 days

History
 3  uti extreme fatigue, severe muscle/joint pain, minor shortness of breath. hoarseness recommend anyone prescribed ask dr for something less toxic. this should be medication of last resort if other drugs don't work. on day 4 of 5 uti much better, side effects are minor but were extreme within 45minutes of taking. extreme fatigue (taking shower, making dinner. load of laundry), &muscle/joint pain was debilitating. bed-ridden fri-sun, missed work, had to ask nana to care for kids. loss of appetite, weight loss. i have to force myself to eat bowl of oatmeal 30min. before taking to avoid upset stomach and vomiting. shortness of breath was minor but nonetheless frightening. yesterday/today minor hoarseness.no diarrhea but then again i take probiotic daily. woke up with cold sore today so clearly body fighting a bug, possibly had undetected low grade fever. if prone to anxiety or sadness, be aware the side effects could trigger or exasperate those feelings - this should be included in the warnings. i'm allergic to most antibiotics so in my case i have to suck it up one more day and pray infection and side effects go away.

 1  Uti Achey body, period onset, worst flank pain of my life, fatigue, shortness of breath, bronchitis like cough, diarrhea, yeast infection, back pain, chest pain I was prescribed this from Express Care for a UTI. I have never taken this antibiotics much less even heard the name before this. A week later I went back to the same place and was told that it seemed I had a normal cough and to continue the microbid to treat both issues...By this point I was 5/6 days into my prescription. It just so happened the following week I had an appointment with my primary. I go and am told that microbid doesn't take away coughs and its the worst antibiotics to give for anything. I am already battling psoriatic arthritis. Now because of this medicine I am in the worst pain. I cant take a deep breathe and have resulted to my inhailer. I'm coughing so hard that I end up gasping for air or this loud squeal/squeak noise follows my coughs like my throat is closing. I was period spotty about a week after taking it and now i am in full blown period crisis. My tonsils are spotty and it also gave me a yeast infection 3 days in. I'm going to say that all of my issues are because of this medication. I go to the Dr for kidney pain and I leave with a million more issues just waiting to go in my body. I will never recommend this medicine and unwashed absolutely spread the name around so it can be avoided!!! F 23 10 days

 1  uti Horrible!! I took the first dose with dinner 2 days ago. Not too long after I was nauseous, vomiting, then non-stop dry-heaving for almost 30 mins. My chest felt tight with a lump in my throat and a really awful headache. Terrible pain in my entire back - like someone stomped on it. So fatigued that I just want to sleep all day. I have no appetite and stomach pain. I called my Dr. and he seemed to think it was just the UTI and told me to keep taking it. It's day 3 and the nausea and fatigue aren't quite as bad but the stomach pain, lack of appetite etc are still here. I have Ulcerative Colitis and this has also brought on a flare which just adds to the experience. I'm going to try to make it to the end, but I will NEVER NEVER take macrobid again! It may not affect everyone this way but if there's a different antibiotic to take, I highly recommend it. F 59 3 days

I started taking this because the Dr. Said it was better for it then my normal ampicillin and I thought maybe I was perimenopausal and even said as much to the Dr I seen a day later but its now day 5 & I still have them and they still come and go and I only took them the one day and I'm starting to think they will never go away and that I will start to feel normal again, I wish I had never taken this stuff and I may never take a new med again! I wish the FDA would take this stuff off the market, no one should feel this way from 1 day of taking something that should make you feel better not worse or more sick then you felt to begin with!

 1  UTI/bladder infection I thought my symptoms were residual effects from the uti and I started to get worried when they lasted so long. I was advised to go to the ER by my GP because I've had a low grade fever the entire time I've been taking this (between 100-102), dizziness, pressure behind my eyes, headache, fatigue, stomach upset. Spent way too much money on tests and the ER visit just to come to the conclusion that it was exactly what was supposed to make me" better that made me sick! UTI symptoms are gone but I've felt sicker since I've been taking this! Not worth it!! F 31 6 days

 1  UTI About an hour after taking this drug for my UTI, I had achy joints. Soon after that I had a fever of 102.8, body aches, and chills. I googled the drug and saw that that was a possible side effect. However, my doctor thought my UTI was traveling to my kidneys- hence the fever. After many tests, it was determined that I am just extremely sensitive to macrobid. I wish I could somehow get back the 4 days I missed from work! F 34 3 days

A few side effects I had after taking just one pill was nausea, swelling in the throat, and shortness of breath. Not to mention this medicine gave no relief. I have always been prescribed Bactrim and it worked fairly quickly. I immediately called my PCP and got Bactrim and feel great. This medication was awful for me. F 31 1 days

 1  UTI When I first started taking the macrobid I completely lost my appetite. I could barely eat anything and had to force myself to do it. Then came the nausea. It was constant. I was tired all of the time and thought that something was seriously wrong with me. My anxiety was through the roof. I had some stresses going on In my life at the time and I also was on my period so I kept putting it off to that. Then my husband suggested that it might be the antibiotic I was on. I stopped a day early. It's two days later, I still can't eat and I have diahhrea as well (as much as there can be with me not eating). I would highly recommend that no one take this drug. There are other antibiotics for UTI! Get your doctor to give you something else. Although I'm slowly getting better felt and still feel way worse then I did with the UTI! F 29 4 days

 1  UTI I never write reviews but this needs to be told to help others. I am very healthy and tolerable to most everything, that's how I know this medication is awful. Wake up to awful stomach cramping and needing to vomit, awful headaches and not feeling like myself. I get married in a week and have this horrible lump in my throat and thought I was getting strep but after reading the reviews it's apparently a side effect! I have 2 pills left and am not taking any more. I'm not sure why my doc stopped prescribing bactrim. It has been successful with me for years of occasional UTIs. It was odd how she promoted it, and after reading reviews almost seems like it was pushed on others as well. DO NOT TAKE THIS DRUG. I just hope the other side effects don't come later when I'm on my honeymoon! F 28 7 days

 3  Bladder infection Diarrhoea (by end of day 1), calf muscle pain by end of day 1 - both calves very painful by morning of day 2, dizziness, light-headedness, mild fever. The drug did signifcantly relieve the bladder infection by the end of day 1. I called the pharmacist in the afternoon of day 2 to report the side effects, and he advised me to stop taking it immediately, particularly because of the calf pain which was a definite indication of a bad reaction to the drug. I took a total of 3 doses. Hopefully that is enough to knock the infection on the head, but not too long to leave long term side effects! F 53 1.5 days

I took the second dose and felt like I had the worst case of influenza ever. I then began looking up side effects and discovered that this does happen to some people. Went to urgent care where it was confirmed that these are side effects of the medication and was switched to a different antibiotic. Felt so much better within 24 hours and back to normal after 48 hours from the last dose. Who knows what may have happened if I had continued taking this the entire 5 days. Urgent Care noted in my file to never prescribe this medication to me again. F 42 5 days

 1  UTI Feeling feverish and chills, face feels numb, flu-like symptoms, sore throat, persistent dry cough, lethargic, tired. I'm still taking it because I want the uti gone but don't know if this feels worse than having one. Also called the nurse and she denied that Macrobid makes you feel this way even though clearly from this forum, it does! Let's get this drug off the market ladies! Contact me! F 29 2 days
