Clearing of sulfa: you asked" How long does it take sulfatrim to leave your system?"... if generally healthy should be 1-2 days. but if kidney dysfunction can be up to 5 days. Drinking plenty of water can be helpful

Calculations:: Half life is 10 hours. Half life is time it takes to get rid of half of what is in the body. After 10 hours, 50% of this antibiotic has been eliminated from your body (if your kidneys function normally). After 40 hours, 94% has been eliminated. After 60 hours, 99% has been eliminated. After 70 hours only trace amounts are left. (http://www.drugsdb.com/resources/drug-half-life-calculator/)

Antibacterial: Sulfatrim is a combination of sulfa and another antibacterial that work together. It is commonly used to treat urinary tract infections. People allergic to sulfa should notify tier physicians about this allergy.
