My friend had been taking sulfamethoxazole for a uti from swimming in the Potomac River. While taking them, she felt really sick( like she had the Nora Virus) and couldn't eat while taking the huge pills. She also nearly choked to death on one of the pills. She stopped using it when she nearly barfed in her bed. She is not allergic to the medicine or anything else that could cause her to feel sick. As soon as she stopped taking them, she felt a lot better. Also, she hasn't had sex, and she did not feel any of the symptoms of a uti such as itching, burning, etc. Please help Answered by Tracy Matherson 4 months ago.

I was prescribed this for some spots i had..i thought they were gnarley spider bites but it ended up being staph. On the little pill bottle it says quanity: 14 but theres 15 in the bottle. Should i still take the 15th extra pill anyway?
Asked by Liz Novellino 4 months ago.
Sulfamethoxazole is the appropriate treatment for a staph infection. This medicine is also known as Bactrim. The quantity on the lable is the amount that the doctor wants you to take. Treatment with Bactrim is usually 1 tablet twice a day for 7 days. So 14 would be the correct amount. The pharmacy must have miscounted accidently. It would not hurt you to take the extra pill, but it probably wouldn't have much benefit either. I suggest just taking the 14 pills as directed by your doctor. If your infection has not cleared up after the pills are gone, speak with your doctor again. It is important to know that you need to drink plenty of water with Bactrim. It also can make you more sensitive to sunlight so watch out for burns. I don't know if you are a girl and take birth control pills, but Bactrim may make them less effective if you do so use back-up birth control for at least a week after you are finished with the pills. Good luck! Answered by Willard Bailin 4 months ago.
Yes, deplete your prescription if that's what was ordered. (it cant hurt to take 1 extra pill) Staph if one of the most common skin conditions mistaken for bites,and of course spiders get the blame. Boils rank right up along side it. Answered by Norma Halter 4 months ago.
What is it Sulfamethoxazole and use?
Asked by Lloyd Mojardin 4 months ago.
GENERIC NAME: sulfamethoxazole BRAND NAME: Gantanol DRUG CLASS AND MECHANISM: Sulfamethoxazole is an anti- bacterial sulfonamide. It prevents the formation of dihydrofolic acid, a compound that bacteria must be able to make in order to survive. Although it was once a very useful antibiotic, it is almost obsolete as a single agent today due to the development of bacterial resistance to its effects. Sulfamethoxazole is now used primarily in combination with trimethoprim, a combination product known as Bactrim or Septra. Sulfamethoxazole was approved by the FDA in 1961. PRESCRIBED FOR: Sulfamethoxazole is used for the treatment of malaria (in combination with quinine sulfate and pyrimethamine), conjunctivitis (inflammation of the conjunctiva of the eye) due to chlamydia, toxoplasmosis (in combination with pyrimethamine), and urinary tract infections (UTI). It is also used in a drug called BACTRIM - sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) Tablets which bactrim is also used as an antibiotic. I personally have used bactrim for UTI (Urinary tract infections, ear infections, certain types of pneumonia. This drug is only to be used when the physician is 100% sure it is a bacteria infection causing they symptoms. Hope this helps ya. Answered by Rosalinda Gathing 4 months ago.

Is any difference in Sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim for animals and people?
It's brand name is Septra.
Asked by Melaine Syer 4 months ago.
Hello, Sulfamethoxazole, also known as Co-Trimoxazole in the UK, is a mixture of 2 different antibiotics in one tablet (or capsule). The first drug is a Sulfa- drug, and the second drug is Trimethoprim. So Sulfatrimoxazole is Trimethoprim with another (Sulfa- ) drug thrown in. The reason for mixing them, is that they both act to kill certain germs in exactly the same way, - it's to do with how these germs handle folic acid. So the germ-killing effect of the combination, is multiplied. The Sulfa- drugs were around in the 1950's and 1960's, - way before Trimethoprim was first discovered, - and doctors used to give the Sulfa- drugs alone, because that's all they had at the time. Unfortunately the Sulfa- drugs had some rare, but quite bad side-effects, like allergic skin reactions and 'Stevens-Johnson syndrome.' These side-effects can also be found in the combination Sulfamethoxazole, and that's partly why it's not used so much these days, - although it can be very effective in the right cases. Animals I don't know about. I'm a retired doctor, not a Vet. Hope this helps. Belliger, (retired UK GP) Answered by Silvana Shifflett 4 months ago.
What does sulfamethoxazole with tmp susphit treat?
Asked by Darnell Ghant 4 months ago.
sulfamethoxazole with trimethoprim or cotrimoxazole is a sulfa drug. It is a broad spectrum antibiotic. Since it is a broad spectrum it can treat diseases caused by gram negative and gram positive microorganisms. In short it can treat almost anything. There was once a period wherein it was called the "wonder drug" however due to its frequent use or its abuse maybe, resistance to the drug rapidly occurred that's why it was seldom used until these days again.Allergic reactions to this kind of drug is also very common limiting its use. The World Health Organization, however, still recommends this drug for treatment of various diseases especially in third world countries. Answered by Regan Greeves 4 months ago.

Asked by Virgil Nazareno 4 months ago.
Sulfamethoxazole may form crystals in the urine which may damage the kidney and cause bleeding into the urine. It is important to drink additional liquids during sulfonamide therapy to prevent these side effects. So drink lots of water and start off by taking just one tablet...it'll be fine.

The drug given uti sulfamethoxazole?
on the symptoms it said could cause kidney stones if not enough fluids are drank is this true i just took my first pill after going to the doctors cause i got a uti anyone got suggestions?
Asked by Criselda Respass 4 months ago.
Yes, it is true that sulfamethoxazole can cause crystals to form in the urinary tract. This hardly ever happens, though, because most pharmacists will put a sticker on the prescription bottle advising fluid intake. And even if they didn't, doctors tell you that when you have a urinary tract infection, whether they give you sulfamethoxazole or something else. So you don't need to worry about it; you just need to drink extra fluids. Answered by Nicolette Chiodo 4 months ago.
Overdose of sulfamethoxazole/TMP? Would it be lethal?
Would an overdose of sulfamethoxazole/TMP tablets be lethal? Just wondering.
Asked by Mayola Haecker 4 months ago.
how much of an overdose are we talking about? A small amount is unlikely to do any serious damage, but a large enough overdose of pretty much anything that you can stick in your mouth can kill you. Data from Mims online... Acute. Symptoms. The amount of a single dose of Bactrim that is either associated with symptoms of overdosage or is likely to be life threatening has not been reported. Signs and symptoms of overdosage reported with sulfonamides include anorexia, colic, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, headache, drowsiness and unconsciousness. Pyrexia, haematuria and crystalluria may be noted. Blood dyscrasias and jaundice are potential late manifestations of overdosage. Signs of acute overdosage with trimethoprim include nausea, vomiting, dizziness, headache, mental depression, confusion and bone marrow depression. Treatment. Treatment of overdose should consist of general supportive measures. General principals of treatment include the prevention of further absorption, forcing of oral fluids, and the administration of intravenous fluids if urine output is low and renal function is normal. Alkalinisation of the urine may aid the elimination of the sulfamethoxazole component of Bactrim but may decrease the elimination of the trimethoprim component. The patient should be monitored with blood counts and appropriate blood chemistries, including electrolytes. If a significant blood dyscrasia or jaundice occurs, specific therapy should be instituted for these complications. On cessation of therapy calcium folinate 3 to 6 mg intramuscularly for five to seven days may be given to counteract the effects of trimethoprim on haemopoiesis. Peritoneal dialysis is not effective and haemodialysis is only moderately effective in eliminating trimethoprim and sulfamethoxazole. It doesn't actually say how much is dangerous, but no fatalities have been reported. Don't overdose anyway. It's no fun. If you are worried or have taken quite a large amount, or if you have any of the symptoms mentioned above, go to the emergency room. hope this helps Answered by Analisa Mishou 4 months ago.
