Nitrofurantoin Questions

I am 77 and have BPH. About 3 months back, I had UTI which was treated with cefixime and cured. The Dr. advised to take Urimax D and operation TURP. He also advised to take Niftas one daily until the surgery is done to prevent infection. Is it safe to take Niftas continuously for long periods? Do Urimax D and Niftas cause vertigo /dizziness?

Dizziness and vertigo is due to urimax, thats why it's advised to take it at bed time. And the symptoms are much more common if you are on antihypertesive medication, .so it's advisable to take antihyertesive medicine in day time and urimax just before going to bed. Niftran is the safest long term prophylactic antibiotic.

Respected ma'am, On account of you tell me to contact you for my problem, I'm writing this letter. I had done the urine culture long back and had some PUS cells detected in it. My doctor treated me that time but the problem reoccurred again after having an intercourse. I'm really searching for a medicine to prevent this but have found none. A doctor advised me to take niftran tablet after having intercourse but I'm not sure whether its safe for me or not. Please help me. Yours sincerely, Mrunmayi Joshi Age: 18 female.

Frequent episodes of urinary tract infections are common conditions, especially among females. Conventionally, courses of antibiotics are administered. Though antibiotics take care of the acute infection, antibiotics never prevent the recurrence. Homeopathic comes to rescue which helps control and prevent recurrences of urinary tract infections. Homeopathy treats the person as a whole. It means that homeopathic treatment focuses on the patient as a person, as well as his pathological condition. The homeopathic remedies for UTI are selected after a full individualizing examination and case-analysis, which includes the medical history of the patient, physical and mental constitution etc. A miasmatic tendency (predisposition/susceptibility) is also often taken into account for the treatment of chronic conditions. A homeopathic constitutional treatment will give you a permanent cure naturally You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance and permanent cure without any side effects Medicines will reach you via courier services
