Hello dear, Niftas (pharmacologically Nitrofurantoin) is an antibiotic commonly used for the treatment of Urinary Tract Infections (UTI). Wishing you a good health. Take care.

Dr.  Chobufo Ditah MD

Hi, You can take both medications together. There is no extra risk taking both together. I wish you well.

Dr.  T Chandrakant MD
