Martifur 100 mg is an antibiotic used to treat or prevent urinary tract infections. This medication does not cure viral infections such as cold and flu; unnecessary use or overuse of any antibiotic can decrease the drug's effectiveness. It contains Nitrofurantoin, which belongs to a group of drugs known as antibiotics, which works by killing or preventing the growth of the bacteria. Nitrofurantoin is an antibiotic that specifically treats urinary tract infections. It improves the critical signs and symptoms like burning, pain, frequent urination, and constant urination. This drug has negligible tissue penetration and is well-concentrated in the urine. It is given only to treat cystitis and prevents infections of the bladder, kidneys, and other parts of the urinary tract.
In general, the dosage depends on the type of infection you have, and instructions are given on the prescription. Consult your doctor if you have any doubts about the usage of the medicine. The usual dose for treating infections is one 100 mg tablet four times a day for seven days. To prevent further infection, your doctor may prescribe one 100 mg tablet that you may need to take at bedtime. For the treatment of children, the dose depends on the weight of the child and will be provided by your doctor.
