Can I open up 50 mg of nitrofurantoin capsules and mix with apple sauce or mashed bananas
Geneviève Duperron Pharmacist owner affiliated with Familiprix

It hasn't been studied by the company.  We know we cannot open MacroBID 100 mg because it is long acting, but for short acting capsules, it could be ok but it would probably increase the risk of heart burn and nausea.  Note that we cannot recommend it because it hasn't been studied

The pharmacist is solely responsible for the answer.
