Mylan 1700 Light Gray or Light Brown Capsule
What is Mylan 1700? What kind of medication is the light gray/brown capsule with MYLAN 1700 printed in black ink on its sides?
Mylan 1700 capsule is Nitrofurantoin 100mg. Each gray or brown capsule filled with yellow powder, and with MYLAN 1700 written on both sides contains 100mg of Nitrofurantoin macrocrystals. The medication belongs to antibiotics (antibacterial medications). Mylan 1700 capsules are mainly used to treat and
prevent urinary tract infections caused by Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus saprophyticus.
Mylan 1700 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 1700 capsules makes it possible to decrease the dosage to 100mg taken twice a day. In case one's dose is specified as 50mg, Mylan 1650 capsules may be used.
Nitrofurantoin in any form, including Mylan 1700 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!

NB! We have been unable to find any difference between Mylan 1700 and Mylan 3422 capsules. They seem to be equal in strength, both containing 100 mg of Nitrofurantoin microcrystals.
