What is Bactrim DS (Trimethoprim/Sulfamethoxazole) used for?

Bactrim DS (Trimethoprim/Sulfamethoxazole) is an oral antibiotic commonly prescribed to treat urinary tract infections caused by bacteria. The medication destroys or slows the reproduction of bacteria cells allowing the immune system to destroy the infection naturally. This action also makes it useful for treating infections of the urinary tract, ears, or kidneys. Your physician may prescribe it to treat other unlisted purposes, as well.

How should I use Bactrim DS (Trimethoprim/Sulfamethoxazole)?

Always use Bactrim DS (Trimethoprim/Sulfamethoxazole) according to the directions provided by your physician to ensure the safest and most effective results from treatment. One tablet is typically administered once or twice daily for a cycle of medication lasting one or two weeks, but your individual dosage and application frequency will be determined by the condition being treated, your current health, and the severity of your symptoms. These should be swallowed with a large glass of water one hour before a meal or two hours following a meal to ensure they are taken on an empty stomach. Do not stop taking the medication before being instructed to do so, even if your symptoms seem to have disappeared, as the infection may not be gone and can return strong or more resistant to treatment. Never crush, split, or chew the tablets before use to prevent unintentionally destroying or altering the effects of their contents. Ask your physician any questions you have regarding the medication to ensure the correct usage.
