Macrobid is an antibacterial antibiotic indicated for the treatment of the infectious diseases. This medicine is one of the strongest antibacterial remedies as its main pharmacological action is directed at a fast and safe result.
Macrobid is mainly used for the treatment of the infectious diseases of urinary tracts because its antimicrobial action applies to most bacteria of the urinary tracts. Despite that this drug is usually used for the treatment of such diseases as pyelitis, pyelonephritis, cystitis, and urethritis, prophylaxis of infections at urological surgeries etc, Macrobid can be also used for the treatment of other disorders of middle and hard severity.
The pharmacological action of the antibiotic becomes apparent by means of the peculiarities of the active component nitrofurantoin. Thanks to the active component patients are able to quickly remove all symptoms of the disease and improve their condition. Macrobid is quickly absorbed by the body and starts acting after the first drug use.
Getting into the infected cell the active component of Macrobid destroys its development and growth and thus it blocks the negative effect on the body. Then the protective structure of the body with the antibiotic removes these cells from the body.
The self-treatment by Macrobid is not recommended. This antibiotic has a very strong effect on the body of a patient due to which it is possible to quickly and easy defeat infection. If the drug is taken incorrectly, you will not achieve the necessary effect and you only make worse.
That is why it is better to consult a doctor or pharmacist about how to take the drug and which dose is the most suitable for your clinical case.
The dose of Macrobid for adults is 100 mg 3-4 times a day depending on the severity of the disease. The dose of the drug for children is 5-7 mg/kg per day divided into 3-4 intakes.
The dose can be adjusted by the doctor depending on the reaction of the body to the use of the drug and its action.
Precautins to the use of Macrobid: chronic/acute diseases of kidneys, liver, heart failure, hepatitis, pregnancy, period of lactation, and allergy to nitrofurantoin.
If you have the above mentioned contraindications, it is necessary to consult the doctor. Possibly, it is needed to reduce the dose of the drug or change the course of the treatment and change Macrobid into another antibiotic. If you neglect all precautions, you may have side effects and this will adversely affect the course of the treatment.
