Trimethoprim is an antibiotic primarily used to treat or prevent urinary tract infections. Trimethoprim is often combined with another antibiotic, sulfamethoxazole, to treat a much wider range of infections.

Whether used on its own or in combination with sulfamethoxazole the agents causing the infection should be identified prior to beginning treatment; the medication will not work on all bacteria, and misuse may contribute to resistant bacteria.

In most areas it's possible to buy Trimethoprim both as a brand-name product as well as a generic. A prescription is required to buy Trimethoprim alone or in combination with sulfamethoxazole.

Using Trimethoprim

On its own Trimethoprim is most commonly used to treat urinary tract infections, though it is sometimes used to treat infections in other areas. It may also be used to prevent urinary infections from developing in patients who are at high risk.

Treatment typically consists of taking 100 mg every 12 hours for 10 days. Alternatively 200 mg doses may be taken once per day. Patients who are young, elderly, or who have major medical conditions may require dosage adjustments.

Using Trimethoprim & Sulfamethoxazole

Trimethoprim is much more commonly used in combination with sulfamethoxazole, as it is effective against a much wider range of bacteria as well as certain types of fungal and protozoal infections. The combined medication is commonly used to treat:

  • Urinary Tract Infections
  • Otitis media
  • Chronic bronchitis
  • Shigellosis
  • Pneumocystis pneumonia
  • Traveler's diarrhea

In most cases treatment consists of taking one or two tablets every 12 hours for 10 to 14 days. There may be considerable variation between patients, however, depending on the infection, its severity, age, weight and numerous other factors. Treatment of pneumocystis pneumonia in particular may vary.

Using Antibiotics

Some rules of thumb while taking any antibiotics, antiviral or antifungal medications, regardless of the type or condition being treated:

  • Try to take doses at the same time every day to maximize presence of the drug in the body.
  • Stay hydrated, especially if experiencing diarrhea, a common side effect of antibiotics. Dehydration can significantly impair recovery.
  • Complete treatment even if all symptoms disappear. Failure to complete treatment will not only contribute to the development of resistant bacteria, but may cause a resurgence of the infection.
  • Always seek medical attention if an infection worsens during treatment.

By keeping the above tips in mind and following doctor instructions recovery will most likely be fast and trouble-free.

Trimethoprim Side Effects

Side effects from Trimethoprim are usually mild and similar to those experienced with any other antibiotic, including:

  • Abdominal discomfort
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Mild fever

A small percentage of patients may develop a skin rash and/or itching. In most cases these side effects are mild and not cause for concern, but very rarely could indicate a more serious condition. If a rash or itching develops in a child, or become severe enough to be disruptive in an adult, the condition should be brought to the attention of a doctor.
