Clear Up Confusion About Nitrofurantoin
Questions still crop up about how to use nitrofurantoin.
It's been around for decades...but its coverage of common UTI bugs and low levels of resistance still make it a good choice.
Is Macrobid preferred over Macrodantin? Generally yes, for easier dosing...since Macrobid (nitrofurantoin MONOHYDRATE/macrocrystals) is 100 mg BID and Macrodantin (nitrofurantoin macrocrystals) is 50 mg QID.
