Nitrofuratoin or macrobid infrequently causes diarrhea but in the setting of IBS it can cause diarrhea because of intestinal tract irritation.

If it is absolutely imperative to take the macrobid then I suggest that you take it along with a low fiber diet - bananas, rice, applesauce, toast, refined cereals etc. and keep yourself hydrated.

But if you have a substitute than it will be a good idea to switch to that and not take the macrobid.

I sincerely ***** ***** I have helped you, and that I have earned my 5 star rating today!

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
