Can you take doxycycline mono and sulfamethoxazole-trimethoprim at the same time?

Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) and Doxy: Hello, for complicated infections, doctors often times use more than one antibiotic. Make sure your doctor knows you are taking 2 antibiotics. If one doctor is treating a urinary infection and another is treating a bronchitis with two antibiotics, you may be over medicated. Each patient that walks into our office poses a unique challenge. Make sure your family doctor is aware of your medication. ...Read more

Can I effectively take Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) for staph and Amoxicillan for sinus infection at the same time?

Can I effectively take Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) for staph and Amoxicillan for sinus infection at the same time?

Yes but unnecessary: There are few bacteria (in the sinus or anywhere else) treated with amoxicillin that are not equally well treated with sulfa-trimethoprim (Bactrim). And taking both will increase the risk of side effects, especially diarrhea or other gastrointestinal symptoms. Probably OK to stop the amoxicillin, but first check with your doctor. ...Read more

Is it safe to take vesicare (solifenacin) and mirabegron at the same time?

Is it safe to take vesicare (solifenacin) and mirabegron at the same time?

Probably: They have different mechanisms and I believe there is currently a clinical trial using both of them as combined therapy. Since they're both prescriptions, the doctor that wrote for that combo is likely experienced enough to feel comfortable giving this to you. ...Read more

Is bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) and sulfamethoxazole-tmp basically the same thing?

Is bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) and sulfamethoxazole-tmp basically the same thing?

Identical: Septra is also the same thing. Sulfamethoxizole-tmp is the generic form. Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) is manufactured by roche and septra by glaxo. Roche developed sulfa component & glaxo the trimethoprim. Roche have done a better job marketing & hence is better known. ...Read more

I just have 3 days taken bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) 2 times a day and I still going to the bathroom like 6 times in those 3 days what can I do please?

I just have 3 days taken bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) 2 times a day and I still going to the bathroom like 6 times in those 3 days what can I do please?

Not getting better?: You should call your doctor and let them know. Sometimes, the bacteria that cause bladder infections can be resistant to the antibiotics doctors give. We like to send what's called a "urine culture", to know for sure what medicines kill the bacteria. If your symptoms aren't improving, the bacteria might be resistent to Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) and you may need a different one. Good luck! ...Read more

I have taken bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) many times w/out incident. Am I at risk for stevens johnson each time I take it or only if I have sulfa allergy?

Each time: Everyone is at risk of having sjs from sulfa drugs and other drugs carry that risk too. These reactions are idiosyncratic and are not predictable. ...Read more

I took generic of bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) ds...have taken many times before...but this time I have somewhat swollen lips with tingling & burning sensation. Should I?

I took generic of bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) ds...have taken many times before...but this time I have somewhat swollen lips with tingling & burning sensation. Should I?

Please stop: The medicine for now, review what happened with your doctor, yes it can happen: you can develop an allergic reaction to a medicine even after several times using it, rare though, but can happen, also it can be a reaction to an inactive ingredient in the generic form, check with your doctor for an alternate medication, if you have to take bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) and no alternative, then see an allergist, good luck ...Read more

Maybe (not). . .: Hmmm. . . Bv or bacterial vaginosis isn't caused by e coli nor is it treated by bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim). Best to go back to prescribing doctor for clarification & possible re-evaluation. Perhaps you were prescribed Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) for bladder infection (UTI) found on urine culture. ...Read more

I am currently taken bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) ds for bladder infection. I am having a horrible time swallowing pills. Terrible gag reflex. Almost puked. What can I do?

OK to break: You may crush the tablets and put them in water or a soft food like applesauce or pudding if you cannot swallow them whole. The pills are large and breaking them up has a terrible taste. Next time tell your doctor as there are smaller pills you could use. Good luck. ...Read more

How much time would it take for a reaction to bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) develop?

How much time would it take for a reaction to bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) develop?

Drug allergy: Most reactions to medications develop fairly soon after starting the medication. A reaction may occur almost immediately, or after a few days, and sometimes may occur even after you have completed the course of the medication. Usually, you will know while taking it that you have a problem. ...Read more
