About Nitrofurantoin

How to take Nitrofurantoin

When treating cystitis with nitrofurantoin, you should take two tablets per day, normally one in the morning and one in the evening. Every tablet contains 100mg of the active ingredient nitrofurantoin. You should swallow each tablet whole with a drink of water and a meal or a glass of milk. The course will last three days, during which your symptoms should gradually improve.


Whether you are taking Macrobid, Macrodantin, Furadantin or generic nitrofurantoin tablets to cure your urine infection, you will usually take 1 tablet containing 100mg nitrofurantoin twice a day. Other ingredients include talc, lactose, sugar as well as carbopol and povidone. For a full list of ingredients, please read the patient leaflet of your nitrofurantoin tablets.

Side effects

Most side effects associated with nitrofurantoin are mild and stop as soon as you stop taking the tablets.

The following side effects can occur:

  • nausea and headache
  • diarrhoea
  • being sick and stomach ache
  • dizziness
  • skin rashes
  • short-term hair loss
  • inflammation of the salivary glands
  • inflammation of the pancreas and fever

Very rarely some patients experience bruising, anemia, susceptibility to colds and other infections whilst taking nitrofurantoin.
