The only UTI med (and I’ve been on them all at some point) that gave me issues was cipro, and that was just brief nausea due to foods I ate (I think I had dairy too soon before/after).  Macrobid was just fine.  I agree with others that that its worth seeing someone if UTIs are a continuing problem (assuming you’re already peeing after sex and doing the other common sense things to prevent UTIs).

Not to scare you, but I had serious problems with Macrobid.  My hands, arms and feet went numb and tingly.  This was before I even read the side effects, so I know it wasn’t just in my head.  It took about 6 months to feel completely back to normal after just 1 pill.  My old urologist thought nothing of it, but my new urologist told me that it means the dose was too high for me, and it was having a toxic effect on my body.  Be very cafeful with Macrobid if you are anemic or vitamin B deficient, that’s when it is more likely to cause these problems.

It happened within half an hour.  My PCP said she never prescribes Macrobid because people have so many problems with it.  The one major advantage is that is is very specific to the urinary tract, so resistance issues are less common.  If you are very prone to anxiety though, it is quite possible that you are imagining the symptoms.

This will be Too Much Information, but I take macrobid all the time.  I get chronic UTIs after intercourse and the only thing that works is to take a macrobid after each time.  The doctor has said this is perfectly fine.  I’ve been taking it for about 5 or 6 years now.  I’ve never had any unusual symptoms or reactions – just the color changing pee!

@BellaDee:  Yeah I am prone to them and it really sucks!  If I forget to take the pill after intercourse, next thing I know I am in the emergency room getting UTI pills!  I have to be really good about it. 

I’ve thought about cranberry pills myself…it definitely might help!!
