Mechanism of action
Furamag is a broad-spectrum antimicrobial agent belonging to the nitrofuran group. Furamagu resistance develops slowly and does not reach a high degree.
Active against: g rampositive cocci (Streptococcus spp., Staphylococcus spp.), Gram-negative rods (Escherichia coli, Salmonella sp., Shigella spp., Proteus spp., Klebsiella spp, Enterobacter spp.), Protozoa (Lamblia intestinalis), organisms, other microorganisms, other microorganisms, other organisms, other microorganisms, other organisms, other microorganisms, other organisms, other microorganisms, other microorganisms, other microorganisms (Lamblia intestinal spp.
Furamag, compared with other nitrofurans, is more active in the relation: Staphylococcus spp, Escherichia coli, Aerobacter aerogenes, Leuconostoc citrovorum, Proteus mirabilis, Proteus morganii.
Against most bacteria, the bacteriostatic concentration ranges from 1: 100,000 to 1: 200,000. The bactericidal concentration is about 2 times greater.
Under the influence of nitrofurans in microorganisms, the respiratory chain and the tricarboxylic acid cycle (Krebs cycle) are suppressed, and other biochemical processes of microorganisms are inhibited, resulting in the destruction of their membrane or cytoplasmic membrane.
As a result of the action of nitrofurans, microorganisms secrete less toxins, and therefore the improvement of the patient’s general condition is possible even before the pronounced suppression of the growth of microflora.Nitrofurans activate the body's immune system: they increase the titer of complement and the ability of leukocytes to phagocytose microorganisms. In therapeutic doses, furazidine stimulates leukopoiesis.
Indications and usage
Infections caused by susceptible microorganisms:
- Urogenital infections (acute cystitis, urethritis, pyelonephritis).
- Gynecological infections.
- Infections of the skin and soft tissues.
- Severe infected burns.
- With the preventive purpose at urological operations (including cystoscopy, catheterization).
- Chronic renal failure severe.
- Lactation period (breastfeeding).
- Children's age up to 3 years.
- Hypersensitivity to nitrofuran group drugs.
With caution apply the drug deficiency of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase, in the neonatal period.

The course of treatment is 7-10 days. If necessary, repeat the course of treatment should be a break for 10-15 days. For the prevention of infection (including during urological operations, cystoscopy, catheterization), the drug is prescribed 50 mg once for 30 minutes before the procedure. In case of skipping the drug, the next dose should be taken at the usual time.Do not take double the dose to compensate for the missed dose.
To reduce the likelihood of side effects Furamag drink down with plenty of liquid. The patient should inform the doctor about any side effects that occur during treatment with the drug. During the period of treatment, the patient is advised to refrain from the use of alcoholic beverages, since there may be an increase in side effects.
Application for violations of renal function: toxic effects as a result of the use of the drug are more common in patients with reduced renal excretory function (the intensity of the metabolism of furazidin increases). With the appearance of side effects of the drug should be discontinued.
Furamag should not be used simultaneously with ristomycin, chloramphenicol, sulfonamides (the risk of hematopoiesis is increased). It is not recommended to prescribe drugs that can acidify urine (including Ascorbic acid, Calcium chloride) simultaneously with nitrofurans.
Symptoms: manifestations of a neurotoxic nature, ataxia, tremor.
Treatment: should drink plenty of fluids. To relieve acute symptoms of antihistamine drugs (diphenhydramine). For the prevention of neuritis it is possible to prescribe Vitamins (thiamine bromide).
The drug should be stored in a dry, dark place at temperatures not above 25 ° C.
