Bactrim Ds Mrsa Dosage
My doctor prescribed me bactrim ds for mrsa. The directions are 2 twice a day. Is that a normal dose?

I was just diagnosed with ca-mrsa and i'm scared since it is often resistant to drugs. I just started bactrim ds tonight. What are the chances of it not responding to any drug? How can you know if it's caught early enough? Thank you!

The choice of antibiotics is limited, but generally the infection is sensitive to at least a few of the mainstream antibiotics of which Bactrim is one.

Sounds good: Mrsa is a scary bug but there a great many different strains and many folks harbor them on their skin with no harm.

It sounds like your dermatologist made the right move. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
