Hi,

Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. I'm sorry to hear about your symptoms. I just came online to see that you have been waiting for some time so ill quickly answer this question for you. Actually, macrobid is known to cause anxiety in many patients. In fact, anxiety appears as a side effect in up to 4-5% of the patients. Similarly, pain in the tailbone can be due to the Macrobid however at the same time it can be a separate issue such as inflammation in the region. So it is possible that you are experiencing anxiety as a result of the Macrobid and if this is the case then simply stopping the therapy will solve the problem. The good news here is that these effects are transient in nature and once you stop the treatment, the effects would fade away within 3-7 days.

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.
