Have a 17-year-old taking Bactrim sulfamethoxazole tmp wondering if there will be any drug interaction if she takes an herbal allergy pill that I got at the health food center that has vitamin A, C, pantothenic acid, calcium, zinc, quercetin, n-acety

Have a 17-year-old taking Bactrim sulfamethoxazole tmp wondering if there will be any drug interaction if she takes an herbal allergy pill that I got at the health food center that has vitamin A, C, pantothenic acid, calcium, zinc, quercetin, n-acety

Probably OK, but...: I doubt there is any serious potential for an adverse interaction. However, one of the problems with "natural" medicines, herbal products, and nutritional supplements, etc is that their exact contents often are unknown, And even when known, there is little research on interations with other drugs. So hard to be certain -- but probably no problem. ...Read more

My daughter was put on bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) last night for a bladder infection. She has sulfa allergy. Is it ok?

Can I take an otc antihistamine along with bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) and prednisone? It is not for allergic reaction from bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim), just for pollen allergy

Can I take an otc antihistamine along with bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) and prednisone? It is not for allergic reaction from bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim), just for pollen allergy

Yes: However, you may find that the prednisone (assuming you're using it for something else) helps more for the pollen allergy than antihistamine. If you are receiving treatment for chronic or worsening sinus pressure/infection, then I strongly recommend seeing an Allergist to get help in the future. Recurrent sinus infections will persist unless the allergy is addressed properly. Good luck! ...Read more

PAINFUL blisters in mouth & vagina due to Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) allergy. Ok to put benzocaine cream on outer vag, offers a little relief. What else can I use? Help!

Symptomatic relief: Is best after discussion with your PCP or doctor. Make sure this is documented in your chart as ALLERGY TO BACTRIM/SULFAS. The symptomatic relief is perhaps the best, like ice chips, no hot, spicy, foods. Keep it bland, hydrating, easy to digest as your entire throat may also be affected down to your gut. Tepid, soothing, nonstinging baths like Aveeno (oatmeal) may be helpful. No chemical shampoos or soaps. ...Read more

Does the drug sulfamethoxazole / trimethoprim treat acne I just got it for my acne?

Does the drug sulfamethoxazole / trimethoprim treat acne I just got it for my acne?

Acne sulfa: The drug sulfamethoxazole/trimethoprim would be able to treat acne but except in unusual cases it is not a good drug to treat acne. The main reason is that there are many other safer medications to use for long term treatment, particularly members of the tetracycline family. Rarely a person can have an adverse reaction to sulfa drugs that can be very severe. I have seen 4 people die from it. ...Read more
