Ugh. Developed an awful UTI yesterday, horrible burning, pain, blood in urine. All that fun stuff. Got a prescription for Nitrofurantoin, an antibiotic. I just got off Remicade and am controlling my Crohn's with diet (no wheat, dairy, etc). I feel generally OK, but I'm worried about the antibiotics really upsetting my stomach.
Any advice or suggestions?
