I was prescribed bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) for symptoms of a uti, the urine test showed I did not have a uti, and urine was normal. Can I stop taking this medication ?

In brief: Yes

If the culture showed no infection then you can stop medicine.
If you started treatment before the culture was sent that may alter the culture results.
