UTI antibotics side effects ???

I found a week ago I had a UTI so I was put on Microbid and they made me so naseated so I was put on zophan to go with it. I have to take it for 10 days so I take my last on Sunday. But here is the problem other than they make me sick they made me constipated bad I got some prune juice yesterday when I was in town and I drank 2 glasses yesterday (yuk!!) but nothing happened. I haven't drank any today because I am scared I am going to drink to much and be running or should I say woddling to the bathroom all day. So how much should I drink? How often? And when should I get some relief ?
Thanks for the help....

Re: UTI antibotics side effects ???

i was also on macrobid a few months ago for a UTI. it made me constipated nauseated and gave me a yeast infection but every antibiotic ive ever taken has messed with my stomach so i dont think its just macrobid i think its antibiotics in general. unfortunately the stomach problems for me didnt go away until a couple days after i finished the medicine so if this is whats gonna happen for you your gonna feel a bit lousy for the next few days. just try to remember that its all to keep the baby healthy as UTIs can cause early labor. knowing your keeping him/her safe is really the only good way i can think to look at it cuz i know how horrible it makes you feel.

I'm suprised the prune juice didn't help! I suppose it's because you're still on the antibiotics. Anyway, I would think it'll start to do it's job when you're off them. I also wanted to add that orange juice really does it for me! I'm normally not very "regular", but in my last pregnancy, I craved SO much orange juice, and I went at least once a day! You might want to try that, if the prune juice doesn't work for you.
