Do you know if bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) will help treat my uti? I was prescribed bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) before but it didn't help. Will it help me this time for recurrent uti?

In brief: UTI

If you have been treated with an antibiotic in the past and it did not work, the chance of it working this time is low, as they are often caused by the same bacteria.
