You can 'google' search 'nitrofurantion (sp?) ingredients' and read the ingredient list. I've taken many different antibacterial, antiparasitic and antifungal drugs. I always check the ingredient list online. You could also call a good pharmacy, especially a compounding pharmacy, and ask the ingredients of any drug.

Sometimes you can get a drug compounded (prepared) without gluten or other intolerance ingredients. I recently took Iodoquinol for the dientamoeba fragilis parasite. Iodoquinol normally contains a 'lactose' ingredient. I ordered that compounded without the lactose. I still had drug side effects, but not my usual dairy reaction, while taking that drug.


Gluten, dairy, soy, egg, cane sugar, vanilla and nutmeg free. Enterolab diagnosed gluten/casein intolerant 7/04; soy intolerant 8/07. ELISA test diagnosed egg/cane sugar IgG allergies 8/06; vanilla/nutmeg 8/06. 2006-10 diagnosed by DNA Microbial stool tests and successfully treated: Klebsiella, Enterobacter Cloaecae, Cryptosporidia, Candida, C-diff, Achromobacter, H. Pylori and Dientamoeba Fragilis. 6/10 Heidelberg capsule test diagnosed hypochloridia. Vitamin D deficiency, hypothyroiditis, hypochloridia and low white blood cells caused vulnerability to infections. I now take Betaine HCl, probiotics, Vitamin D and T3 thyroid supplement to maintain immunity.
