Hello friends ♡
I am away from home, visiting with my mom and I developed cystitis symptoms. I just went to the local urgent care. They prescribed Macrobid 100mg twice a day for 7 days. I am post menopausal with genitourinary atrophy.
I have APS and UCTD. I am taking Eliquis (prescribed by the Mayo Clinic for me instead aof warafin due to my particular circumstances) hydroxychloroquine, and 81 mg aspirin.
I searched online for any contraindications or interactions, and found none. I am reaching out to you all, the expert patients, to see if you have any advice while taking this antibiotic. I am always a little more concerned about triggering a flare or a new autoimmune disease than the average person, but it my caution has served me well.
Also how do I prevent a yeast infection?
****Update : I have an appointment with a Urogynecologist on the 18th. My Godmother who is a retired RN said that UTI symptoms do not come and go like mine are and thinks this may be interstitial cystitis and told me to hold of on taking the Macrobid.
Thank you in advance!
