 1  UTI Anxiety, paranoia, night sweats, hallucinations, vivid dreams, lethargy, nausea, emotional These were horrific. I felt like the majority of the time I was stoned but not in a good way. My anxiety and paranoia levels were ridiculous. They also made me cry at everything. I ended up only taking the doses at night time because I couldn't deal with the anxiety and paranoia and walking around like a zombie all day. I also don't think it's completely cleared my uti.

 1  UTI Loss of appetite, headache, dizziness, cold, panic attack, anxiety, night sweats, exhaustion, rapid heart beat. It really kicked in on day 2. I didn't feel relief from this drug immediately like I have from others (don't remember which ones) in the past. I'm on day 3 and I don't feel like it's clearing up the uti. I need another course but I can't handle the side effects. F 37 3 days

 1  UTI Seemed fine at first until the after the third dose, which was the second night,woke up dripping wet with sweat and tingling sensation of the skin, took fourth dose in the morning and was fine all day but again after night time dose woke up dripping wet with numbness in arm and skin tingling, plus eyes seem blurred, frightened to go back to sleep. Will never take this again, don't think I should have been given it in the first place due to my age F 65 3 days

 1  Uti Had a suspected uti and was prescribed 100mg 4 times a day for 7 days. Day 1 my symptoms were improving but on the 2nd day felt nauseous, headache, anxiety, stomach pain and chills. Couldn't get warm at all and shaking violently. Temperature dropped to 25.1 and felt like I was dying. Stopped taking them and went back to gp. Everyone has different reactions to different drugs but I would be cautious if prescribed this. Will never take again. F 51 7 days

 1  Uti Dizziness, headache, racing heart, extreme lethargy, weak, tired, back and rib pain, no appetite Last time I had a uti I was prescribed this and didn't have any side effects besides a little nausea which subsided after taking it for a couple of days. This time when I got a uti I had a urine culture done and this was on the list to help the uti. I took it the first day and was fine, second day was fine too by the third day was hit with all the side effects. Felt so sick and was in bed in all day. Not 100% sure if it was the drugs or was my uti getting worse. I did have mild dizziness and rib pain before starting the drug but it definitely got worse after I started the drug. Still struggling with my uti. Even antibiotics that have worked in the past haven't been helping and the hospital antibiotic made me ill too. F 34 3 days

 1  UTI First day started taking this awful drug was fine, on the second day started feeling weak all over, dizzy, breathless and with headaches and chills. Roll on to day 6 and the side effects still haven't worn off. I will be ringing my doctor in the morning again as I'm not feeling any better. Avoid this drug at all costs, not worth the trouble. If I had known it would cause me so many problems there is no way I would have taken it. F 38 3 days

 3  Kidney Stones Night sweats and nightmares I was prescribed because I went for a uti and found out it was kidney stones at urgent care. Just put me on uti medicine anyways. I feel fine for the most part but I sweat like crazy at night and have the weirdest dreams! One that my epileptic dog was having a seizure in my arms. Passed the stones before medication so idk what it's really doing for me now F 26 7 days

NITROFURANTOIN  (NITROFURANTOIN, MACROCRYSTALLINE):  This medication is used to treat or prevent certain urinary tract infections. This medication is an antibiotic that works by stopping the growth of bacteria. It will not work for viral infections (e.g., common cold, flu). Unnecessary use or overuse of any antibiotic can lead to its decreased effectiveness. Nitrofurantoin should not be used in children less than one month of age due to the risk of a certain blood problem (hemolytic anemia).   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
