Bactrim is made up of two antibiotics called sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim. Bactrim comes in tablet form, usually green or white in color, for oral administration. We carry the generic version of Bactrim, which is sold as Bactrims two main ingredients, sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim, in 400mg/80mg and 800mg/160mg.

This medication is used to treat a wide variety of bacterial infections. This includes middle ear, urine, respiratory and intestinal infections. It is also commonly used to prevent and treat pneumocystis-type (type of pneumonia).

Bactrim works by getting rid of the bacteria that cause many kinds of infections. Some examples of bacteria that cause infections are streptococcus, staphylococcus, and E. coli.

Drink plenty of fluids while taking this medication to lower the unlikely risk of kidney stones forming.

What are the upsides of this medication? The downsides?


        Bacterial resistance is less likely to develop with Bactrim than if either ingredient (sulfamethoxazole or trimethoprim) is taken alone.

        Bactrim is available as a generic under the name sulfamethoxazole/trimethoprim which comes in a reduced price.

        Elderly people may be more susceptible to the side effects of Bactrim.


Is it okay to share this medication with someone who also suffers the same condition as I do?

No. It is never okay to share medications with others because we all react differently to drugs and each patient must be prescribed the appropriate amount for that person individually. What may work for you could seriously harm another person.
