My daughter has hydronephrosis. No reflux. High levels of creatinine and bun. Doctors want to treat her with long term bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim). Is this okay?

Definitely not OK. Ideally daughter needs to be seen & managed by pediatric urologist who may advise surgery to relieve any obstruction causing her hydronephrosis & nephrologist regarding her azotemia (elevated BUN & creatinine). Suggest you go to la, los angeles children's hospital or ucla medical center. This is not something to be managed locally in yucaima. Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) not appropriate unless infected & not long term.
Renal Failure . She has renal failure and bacrim is not indicated.She needs urgently to be investigated for hydronephrosis.

I'm extremely allergic to bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim). My husband is not. Our two sons are both allergic to Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) too. What are the chances our daughter is allergic too?

Higher than average. Just because of family history there is a higher than usual chance that your daughter is allergic. Due to the nature of allergies, they should never have an allergic reaction on the first exposure to the substance, and the allergic reaction should be mild the first time around. This does not mean that your daughter will be allergic to Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) though. Every person reacts differently. Read more...

I was diagnosed with BV. My doctor prescribed me Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim). Will it work? When will it take affect?

Atypical treatment. Sulfa-methoxazole (Bactrim®) is not a recommneded treatment for bacterial vaginosis and probably will not work well. The usual treatment is metronidazole (Flagyl and other brands) or tinidazole (Tindamax), sometimes clindamycin. Discuss with your doctor; or if s/he is not highly familiar with BV and its treatment, maybe get a second opinion. Good luck. Read more...
