Macrobid

Anyone take this for a persistant uti?? Any side effects? I've taken 2 so far and they bother my throat. I'm not sure if its swelling or just really dry. I can't swallow well. I don't wanna stop taking it till I talk to my doctor but at the same time I don't wanna take it if I'm allergic. Any suggestions?

Hi there,
Every drug has its own advantages and disadvantages. Few people may have throat irritation and throat pain with macrobid.There are many antibiotics which are very effective in UTI.If the symptoms are severe and persistent consult your attending doctor. He may prescribe an alternative medication. Do write to me again on how you are doing.
Best wishes and regards!

Thanku for replying. It turns out that I was allergic to the macrobid. I am now on a new antibotic (antibiotic) called cipro and so far so good.
Hopefully it knocks out the infection.
Have a wonderful day.
