  • From this study (12 months ago):

  • I took macrobid for 5 days.On the second day I noticed my throat getting sore then it became hoarse and by the next morning I had lost it. That was last Wednesday I still have virtually no voice. Also I have noticed an increasing depression although I am taking my wellbutrin regularly.
    Before I took the macrobid I was in general good health and happy and feeling great. now I feel awful, dizzy, could care less if I live or die sort of feelings no interest in sex, finishing school etc. THIS IS NOT GOOD!!
    Thank you, Aria
