So I have felt for weeks now that I had a bladder infection, but my urine has seemed fine. Today it was absolutely cruddy looking (visibly) and the NP at my practice checked it and found I have a UTI. She prescribed Macrodantin, which I have never taken before. I was about to take the first dose, and I was reading through the pharmacy pamphlet about it. It says in big, bold letters that you SHOULD NOT take Macrodantin when you are at term (38-42 weeks) of pregnancy. Uh??? What the heck? I am 38 weeks yesterday, and she knows that. My pharmacist knows I am on prenatals, but I guess didn't think to ask me. So I called the pharmacy, but no one is there. I am not taking it, but what would you all do? I am having lots of pulling, burning, etc, but I am absolutely not taking something that is clearly marked unsafe for me and the baby. I can't figure out what is wrong with it - not a lot of luck with web searches - but if the pamphlet says it, that is enough for me.
