Any advice on Meds, Vits & Supplements?

I’ve just found out that my daily Nitrofurantoin anti b as a preventative of UTI’s WILL NOT work with any type of Magnesium.

My Vitamin regime includes: B, C, D, H (Biotin in 3 doses) and I eat lots of various fish, chicken, fresh fruit & veg.

Magnesium L Threonate & K2 drops recently added. JMy choice to take Magnesium with Nitrofurantoin never actually kills the infection!! Any advice? My anxiety is through the roof!

I use the BetterYou supplements quite a lot as there’s less fillers - oral vit D/D3 sprays and Magnesium oil spray to massage into legs to calm spasticity, so more direct than taking orally. Don’t know if those suggestions are of any help to you.

Not got a scoobie SORRY is best and most caring voice. how about taking at a 12 hour apart from each other? or speak to GP for a different AB I cant remember the name of the one I used to take as preventative. I dont need one since I have gone Supra Pubic catheter, I now go months and months instead of 8 weeks with infections when I had an indwelling catheter, I HATE UTI’s and I never HATE anything but I do when it comes to UTI

Hi Don, I don’t hate either, it’s a strong word. But such regular uti’s, pain, temperature & risks the infections bring, lead to describe uti’s as hateful. An SPC ok awaits soon and then I’ll resume Magnesium of whatever type is best.

All other vits & supplements still appear to be beneficial, especially Biotin, But C D & fish oils. I suppose I should be delighted (flippin’ hard when bladder or any infections make us feel so poorly.
