What is Nitrofurantoin?
A broad spectrum antimicrobial drug, a derivative of nitrofuran. It has a bacteriostatic and bactericidal effect in urinary tract infections. Nitrofurantoin is active against Esherichia coli, Klebsiella spp., Enterobacter spp., Proteus spp.
Effective mainly with urinary tract infections.
It is well absorbed from the digestive tract. Bioavailability is 50% (food increases bioavailability). The absorption rate depends on the size of the crystals (the microcrystalline form is characterized by rapid solubility and absorption rate, short time to reach Cmax in the urine). Binding to plasma proteins – 60%. Metabolized in the liver and muscle tissue. T1 / 2 – 20-25 min. Penetrates through the BBB, the placental barrier, excreted in breast milk. It is excreted completely by the kidneys (30-50% – unchanged).
