Nitrofurantoin is an effective antibiotic for treating urinary tract infections (UTIs). The most common side effects include nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea; these usually resolve within a few days even without treatment. Rarely, more serious side effects such as allergic reactions or liver damage can occur; contact your healthcare provider immediately if any unusual symptoms develop while taking nitrofurantoin.
If you experience symptoms of a UTI such as pain or burning when urinating, cloudy or bloody urine, fever, chills, body aches), talk to your healthcare provider about whether nitrofurantoin is right for you – it’s often prescribed as first line therapy for uncomplicated UTIs.
