Macrobid Information

Macrobid Details (Brand and Generic) currently offers the generic Nitrofurantoin Macrocrystals from Canada. The brand version is not available at the moment. Our customers may also purchase other Anti-Infective/Antibiotic Medications such as Augmentin and Ceftin.


The generic Nitrofurantoin Macrocrystals is available in the strength of 50 mg and 100 mg capsule.


Macrobid (Nitrofurantoin Macrocrystals) is a prescription medication used to treat urinary tract infections caused by different types of bacteria. The active ingredient in the Macrobid capsule is Nitrofurantoin Macrocrystals. Nitrofurantoin belongs to the class of drugs called antibiotics. It works by killing the bacteria by entering their cells and damaging their genetic material. Using antibiotics when they are not needed increases your risk of getting an infection later that resists antibiotic treatment.

Side Effects and Precautions

The common side effects of Macrobid are urine discoloration, nausea, vomiting, anorexia, arthralgia, cough, fatigue, numbness, and muscle weakness.

Stop using Macrobid and contact your doctor right away if you have any of the serious side effects such as:
• Confusion;
• Eye pain or vision changes;
• Muscle weakness;
• Numbness, tingling, or pinprick sensation in the fingers and toes;
• Paleness;
• Persistent cough;

You should feel better within a few days of using Nitrofurantoin for urinary tract infections. It would be best to keep taking your tablet until you finish your prescribed dosage.
