What is the difference between bactrim ds and cipro 500mg?
Which one is stronger? Thanks for your answers!
Asked by Jimmie Yuste 6 months ago.
Bactrim, an antibacterial combination drug, is prescribed for the treatment of certain urinary tract infections, severe middle ear infections in children, long-lasting or frequently recurring bronchitis in adults that has increased in seriousness, inflammation of the intestine due to a severe bacterial infection, and travelers' diarrhea in adults. Bactrim is also prescribed for the treatment of Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia, and for prevention of this type of pneumonia in people with weakened immune systems. Cipro is an antibiotic used to treat infections of the lower respiratory tract, the abdomen, the skin, the bones and joints, and the urinary tract, including cystitis (bladder inflammation) in women. It is also prescribed for severe sinus or bronchial infections, infectious diarrhea, typhoid fever, inhalational anthrax, infections of the prostate gland, and some sexually transmitted diseases such as gonorrhea. Additionally, some doctors prescribe Cipro for certain serious ear infections, tuberculosis, and some of the infections common in people with AIDS. Answered by Angelena Daponte 6 months ago.
Bactrim ds is a combo of 2 antibiotic (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) Use to treat bacterial infection : UTI, bronchitis, ear infections, diarrhea (traveler's dirrahea), pneumocystis carinii pneumonia. Very important to remember..., if you are allergic to sulfa, make sure you let your doctor know about this. As with a lot of antibiotic, caution also especially if you have problems with your liver and kidneys. This type of drug can also potentiate or increase the effect of anticoagulants (coumadin)thus the increase risk for bleeding, as well as antidiabetic medication, so if you take diabetic medication, watch for low blood sugar. When taking this medication, wear sun protection because this med causes photosensitivity. Cipro is a broad spectrum antibiotic (fluoroquinolones group) that attacks bacterial cell DNA structure thus inhibiting bacterial replication. Used as last resort if possible since it is a broad spectrum antibiotic. Use in the treatment of lower respiratory tract infections, UTIs, E-coli, skin and skin structure infections, bone and joint infections, intra-abdominal infections, and gonorrhea. Dose ranges from 250mg, 500mg, 750mg, 1000mg, They also come in XR (extended release) form. Hope this helps. Answered by Venus Ospital 6 months ago.

thanks daddyrx!! :)
Asked by Nia Ferrebee 6 months ago.
Bactrim and Bactrim DS have two components to them. Bactrim is 400mg sulfamethoxazole and 80mg trimethoprim, and Bactrim DS is 800mg sulfamethoxazole and 160mg trimethoprim. While both Bactrim and Macrodantin (nitrofurantoin) treat UTI's, they aren't interchangeable. Answered by Harvey Landing 6 months ago.
It's both 800 mg of sulfamethoxasole AND 160 mg of trimethoprim. Macrodantin is pretty good, too. The two may or may not be comparable depending on your condition, the bug in your pee, and local drug resistance patterns. Answered by Santo Kendal 6 months ago.

Bactrim ds help? Please?
So I have been taking bactrim ds for about 4 days twice a day for an infected toe and since iv been taking it Iv had headaches and sinus problems could bactrim ds be the problem
Asked by Vernon Leisinger 6 months ago.
The common side effects shared by all antibiotics are nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhea (loose stools) and rash but headache and sinus problems are not side effects of Bactrim or Bactrim DS. In fact, headache is a frequent symptom of sinusitis. Answered by Cruz Rax 6 months ago.
Dry and/or greasy dermis because of bad oil composition of the epidermis. Thick greasy oils clog pores, lack of oil leads to dryness and inflammation. You want thin oils to moisturize at the same time dissolving and clearing gunk in your poors. Are trying fish oil or seafood. 2 tsp fish oil a day or four servings of seafood every week. Stick it out for at least 2 months; it's going to take a long time to replace all your oil. Any result after 1-2 days is transitority or random; so even if it makes you get away just a little in the beginning, you have not given it a full are trying but. Within the short term which you could wash and moisturize good, however so that it will handiest go to this point. Plus excessive washing can be drying and excessive moisturizing can be clogging. Use a small amount of a gentle moisturizer, made with oil not jelly or grease. Most often that suggests soybean oil or mineral oil. Mineral oil way mined from the bottom. So soybean oil is mostly better, though mineral oil is not going to cause too much damage. Clean with cleaning soap and water, now not a harsh pimples cleaner. Even then they just work so good. So you really want the seafood. Antibiotics don't seem to be particularly good for bacteria long term, they are going to come again in drive after. Quick term they may aid. After you get off them in finding some kefir with acidophilus listed first or 2nd to switch the friendly micro organism they destroyed. Experiences show less ailment if in case you have these micro organism, even external the belly in areas such as the lungs and in different places.

Can i take bactrim ds twice?
because my doc gave me a bottle for 14 days, for a staph infection not mrsa! and the infection came back a month later somewhere else on my leg...should i take something stronger or give the bactrim ds another try?
Asked by Lavonda Pretti 6 months ago.
I work with people who suffer from Staphylococcus aureus and MRSA/VRSA infections. Most of these people have taken Bactrim DS at some time during their failed treatments. On a personal basis, I think Bactrim DS is quite useless in tackling Staph. aureus infections and only builds stepping stones for further antibiotic resistance.

You are having a severe reaction to the Bactrim DS..(I can't believe they are still prescribing this)..The reaction is very severe and can be fatal.. and I would suggest you stop taking the medicine NOW..Drink you LOTS of water now..Call your Dr and tell them about your reaction to this horrible drug!!. Your doctor should give you something to help you.All I know is an oatmeal bath(grind one cup of raw oatmeal and add to warm bath water), Soak for 15-20 min.Be careful, water will be slippery..Rinse and pat skin dry..You can eat yogurt to help replace the good bacteria that Bactrim destroyed.. Addition: You are probably dehydrated..Drinking a couple of glasses of water now will help. Answered by Mackenzie Lauw 6 months ago.
Sounds more like baby acne which will come and go with pimply looking spots. Just wash in clear water and it will clear up on it's own, don't use any soaps or moisturizers until it does clear. I'm sure you are going to wash the gown but I have a feeling it's probably just a coincidence. Baby acne will come and go at any time for the next 6 months. Just the hormones coming out of her system and adjusting to life in the air instead of the amniotic fluid. edit - Bugsey is right, breastmilk might help! And it certainly won't hurt.

I have been seen for a belly button infection that after swab of puss was found to be a strep infection. dr put me on antiobiotic regimine of Bactrim DS for 14 days. today is day 10 and the infection is still present along w/ blood. Looking for insight as to what else could be going on if antibiotic isn't working and there is still blood? Answered by Madalene Baity 6 months ago.
I would not have chosen to treat a Streptococcus-induced skin infection with Bactrim. It would not be a drug of choice. First choice would be amoxicillin or Augmentin (amoxicillin/potassium clavulanate ) or a cephalosporin (1st generation would be fine). Alternatives are: ampicillin/sulbactam (Unasyn), clindamycin or vancomycin or erythromycin- clarithromycin (Biaxin) - azithromycin (Zithromax). This all hinges on the sensitivity pattern and the Group designation of the Strep (Group A,B, C, G, S, etc). You need to revisit the physician; report the negative effect of the Bactrim and have him/her try another antibiotic. Bactrim may have been the first choice since Staphylococcus aureus comes to mind first when considering cellulitis infections. I wouldn't wait long to follow up with your doctor. Streptococcus can be a fast moving infection with dire consequences. Answered by Clifford Mirra 6 months ago.

Asked by Margit Collymore 6 months ago.
bactrim ds is a sulfonamide antibiotic, and as far as I can find, its use is not contraindicated with panlor ss. A website about Panlor ss had a list of medications that interact with it on it and sulfonamides were not listed. Answered by Ka Hecker 6 months ago.
1. first of all, never take meds not prescribed by your physician. 2.

All I want to know is, how many milligrams should my dog take of the augmentin or the Bactrim Ds. My dog weighs from 90-100 pounds. How many pills should she take and how long? Please answer. It would really help. Answered by Nieves Hastin 6 months ago.
Just as your human doctor would tell you DO NOT self medicate. Do you know EXACTLY what the rash is? Have you done a skin scraping and read it under a microscope to rule out parasites such as mange? have you done a fungal culture to rule out ringworm? Is it a food allergy? Flea allergy? Unless you can positively answer all of these questions do not give you dog any antibiotics. Augmentin (amoxicillin) is a broad spectrum antibiotic and relatively safe, however, use of amoxicillin where it is not indicated can result in resistance to the drug. Bactrim (SMZ-TMP Sulfa/Trimethoprim) is an antibiotic used to treat bacterial infections such as gastric bacteria, URIs, and skin infections. But since you cannot be sure WHAT your dog has ( or if it even IS an infection) I would contact a vet. As a technician, I cannot ethically give you dosages of prescription medication, especially over the internet...nor would a vet worth their salt. Answered by Youlanda Twelves 6 months ago.
