Is it safe to take bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) and amoxicillin together? Taking bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) for a uti, amoxicillin for an infection after wisdom teeth removal iam 19yo male
Usually Yes. It seems the medications are treating 2 different things. If they were prescribed by the same doctor then he/she is aware and made the choice for specific reasons. If they were prescribed by 2 different doctors let your primary doctor know about it. He/she may be able to switch you to a single antibiotic to cover both conditions. Good luck.
Combining Meds. One of your providers needs to be consulted. It is not wise to be on both of these antibiotics at the same time.
Will bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) for a UTI affect wisdom teeth recovery? I had 4 impacted teeth removed 5wks ago but recently developed a uti. Will bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) affect it?
Comorbidity. Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) is a common medication for UTI and has nothing to do with wisdom teeth surgery recovery. While complications such as a delayed infection are rare, they are possible and easy to treat. Rec.: see your dentist or os for post-operative visit. Good luck. Read more...
