I was prescribed Bactrium DS, for urethritis. I'm suppose to take one pill twice a day for five days. How would I go about the hours of taking them?

Every 12 hours: Simply divide the number of hours in a day (24) by the number of doses per day (2) and you get 12 hours. So one dose every 12 hours. Most people take a medication like this every morning and again in the evening. ...Read more

I get insomnia from bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) ds 800-160. How long after taking a pill might this impact me?

I get insomnia from bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) ds 800-160. How long after taking a pill might this impact me?

See answer: The half-life of a drug is the time it takes for a drug to lose half (50%) of its pharmacologic or physiologic properties. The half-life of the two drug ingredients in Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) are 8 and 10 hrs. Therefore, after 5 half-lifes or 40 and 50 hrs for the 2 drugs, 97% of the drugs will be out of your system (~2 days). One would expect any related insomnia to be short? ...Read more

Unclear: It is hard to tie these things together. Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) can occasionally lower platelet counts which would make it easier to bruise. But if there is just one bruise and you are off the medication you might watch and see. If you continue to have bruising problems, have any bleeding, or are still concerned then see your doctor. ...Read more

Which of these antibiotics are better for treating dark acne spots on the face and why? (amoxicillin 500 mg capsule or sulfamethoxazole-tmp ds tablet)

Which of these antibiotics are better for treating dark acne spots on the face and why? (amoxicillin 500 mg capsule or sulfamethoxazole-tmp ds tablet)

Acne: Neither of those medications are useful for acne dark spots. Neither of them are very useful in treating acne at all. The sulfa drug can help acne but can have very serious side effects so it is not routinely used. Whenever the skin is inflamed it will get lighter or darker in color. See your dermatologist to get the acne under control so you don't get scars and dark spots. ...Read more
