Mylan 1650 Beige Capsule
What is Mylan 1650? What kind of medication is the oval beige capsule with MYLAN 1650 printed in black on its sides?
Mylan 1650 capsule is Nitrofurantoin 50mg. Each oval beige-colored capsule filled with yellow powder, and with MYLAN 1650 written on both sides contains 50mg of Nitrofurantoin macrocrystals. The medication belongs to antibiotics (antibacterial medications). Mylan 1650 capsules are mainly used to treat and prevent urinary tract infections caused by Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus saprophyticus.
Mylan 1650 capsules are available in bottles of 100 and 500.
Nitrofurantoin is marketed under various brand names that include: Furadantin, Macrobid, Macrodantin and Nitro Macro.
Remember that Nitrofurantoin only affects bacteria, and may be effective in the treatment of such conditions as cystitis, but will not work for viral infections (e.g., common cold, flu).
The normal adult dose of Nitrofurantoin is 50 to 100mg four times daily for seven days. Macrocrystal (or long-released) formulation of Nitrofurantoin used in Mylan 1650 capsules makes it possible to decrease the dosage to 50mg taken twice a day. In case one's dose is specified as 100mg at a time, Mylan 3422 or Mylan 1700 capsules may be used.
Nitrofurantoin in any form, including Mylan 1650 capsules, must be taken with food. The medication can cause bleeding in the stomach, vomiting and other gastrointestinal disruptions if taken improperly.
Nitrofurantoin should not be given to children younger than 12 years old.
Mylan has pioneered the development and production of sophisticated dosage forms such as extended-release capsules as well as transdermal patches that deliver medication through the skin.
You benefit directly when Mylan Generics are used in place of name-brand medicines. First, because you will be receiving a high quality medicine, and second, because Mylan Generics are generally more affordable.
However, you may try and order Nitrofurantoin marketed by other manufacturers, too!
