How it works

Nitrofurantoin is a nitrofuran antibacterial agent. It is specifically used to treat urinary tract infections caused by many gram-negative and some gram-positive bacteria

How it works:
Nitrofurantoin is reduced by bacterial flavoproteins to reactive intermediates which inactivate or alter bacterial ribosomal proteins and other macromolecules. As a result of such inactivation, the vital biochemical processes of protein synthesis, aerobic energy metabolism, DNA synthesis, RNA synthesis, and cell wall synthesis are inhibited. The broad-based nature of this mode of action may explain the lack of acquired bacterial resistance to nitrofurantoin, as the necessary multiple and simultaneous mutations of the target macromolecules would likely be lethal to the bacteria.

For the treatment of acute uncomplicated urinary tract infections, e.g., cystitis, when due to susceptible strains of Escherichia coli, and Staphylococcus saprophyticus
Suitable for managing severe symptoms of UTIs
