Were you looking for information about Nitrofurantoin? Nitrofuranton is a common misspelling of nitrofurantoin.
Nitrofurantoin, a prescription drug, is the active ingredient in Macrobid®, Macrodantin®, and Furadantin® -- antibiotics that are used to treat (and in some cases, prevent) urinary tract infections (UTIs). The medicine comes in the form of a capsule or a liquid. Some of the drug's possible side effects include vomiting, loss of appetite, and nausea.
Although most people tolerate it well, nitrofurantoin may not be the best choice for everyone. Telling your healthcare provider about all of your current medications will help reduce the risk of drug interactions. In addition, you should let your healthcare provider know if you are pregnant or have any other medical conditions, such as anemia, diabetes, or glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency.
