macrobid and complex uti
I have been diagnosed with complex uti and have been placed on macrobid 50mg, at night.  After being on it 2 months, I have terrible gastritis, and my doctor told me to stop taking it.  I spoke to my urologist and he said to stay off it for 3 weeks then go back on.   Is being on this antibiotic good, as many doctors say it wipes out the normal flora.  Can I also take it for 2 weeks on 2 weeks off and have the same effect in controlling my uti.

I have had the WORST experience on Macrobid. My advice is to go to askapatient.com and look at the experiences others have had while taking Macrobid long-term. Everyone is different but my biggest regret Is taking that antibiotic so blindly. Please look up D- Mannose if you suffer from chronic UTIs and reconsider taking Macrobid.
