    Took for 30 years, developed fluid around lungs caused by an irritant. No known cause of irritant. After reading these reviews am wondering and will notify my teaching doctor of my concerns.

    I took the drug 9 weeks and the doctor stopped it. I was to take it 12 weeks. I have sores in my mouth, sores on my tongue, my mouth burns, loss of taste, and I'm worried the UTIs will return because I stopped this. After reading all these reviews I'm nervous.

    I am sitting here and can't believe what I have just read. I now have something similar to pneumonia brought on by consuming macro dantin for 1 1/2 yrs also. I can barely breath, talk or have any energy. The woman dying in ICU is so sad. I am almost there myself. I have a gall bladder stone operation scheduled for Monday and my lungs aren't really ready. I have 88% oxygen and must ex ... Show Full Comment
