See Macrobid While Pregnant Yahoo Answers
Background. This part of the emedtv library takes a closer look at using this antibiotic during pregnancy, explaining the unless you're going to deliver soon, macrobid is generally considered safe to take during pregnancy. My doctor proscribed me macrobid.
It is generally considered safe for pregnant women to take macrobid (except after week 38). I am still hesitant in taking the medicine because of all the googling. Macrobid is a nitrofuran antibiotic and cipro is a quinolone antibiotic.
Side effects of nitrofurantoin and bactrim that are similar include headache, rash, nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, and diarrhea.
Pregnant women are more prone to getting bacterial infection in the urinary tract. Folic acid reduces the homocysteine, while b 12 and b 6 are synergystic. My wife had an urinary track inffection when she was 6 weeks pregnant, the doctor told her to take two anti biotics, one only a week and macrobid throughout the whole pregnancy to prevent the infection to come back , we switched hospitals, we told the new doctor that the previous doctors gave. This morning i woke up itching like crazy and ended up having head to toe hives! Well, we don't want to scare you, but it turns out that. Says macrobid is fine throughout pregnancy even with the warnings all over the pamphlet. Do not take macrobid while pregnant! Macrobid is the main thing that gets rid of uti so i don't think that is correct??
