Is any difference in Sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim for animals and people?
It's brand name is Septra.
Asked by Evelynn Wurtzel 6 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 Willie Corbeil 6 months ago.
Has anyone had to take Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) before and had nausea from it?
I'm taking it for sinusitis and bronchitis. The dosage on the bottle says 200-40/5...whatever that means.
Asked by Jaymie Keohane 6 months ago.
I had to take it before but it made my stomach hurt. A lot of antibiotics do, but I can't avoid them because I'm sick and the only one that doesn't make me feel really nauseous didn't clear this up. Does anyone have any advice on how to avoid or aid in the stomach aches it causes. I have a really sensitive stomach so I get sick easily and I really would like to avoid that, so I'd appreciate any tips! Thanks!! Answered by Angelia Cronk 6 months ago.
Microbial flora refers to the microorganisms normally found on the skin and in the gastrointestinal tract, which includes the mouth, stomach and intestines. It is normal to find hundreds of different types of bacteria. Some of the bacteria actually help the body to digest food and prevent the growth of more dangerous bacteria. Although that’s not what it is meant to target, antibiotics can attack the microbial flora, upsetting the normal balance and causing nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. These three are some of the most common side effects of Bactrim. Try taking the medication with food, having small, frequent meals, sucking hard, sugar-free candy, or chewing sugar-free gum to help with the nausea. If the nausea is severe, contact your doctor immediately. In terms of the dosage, it sounds like you’ve been prescribed the oral suspension. If so, the numbers represent 200mg of sulfamethoxazole and 40mg of trimethoprim in every 5 milliliters (or 1 teaspoon) of oral suspension. Hope this helps! Answered by Nelle Spulick 6 months ago.
Try eating alittle something so the bactrim isn't sitting on an empty stomach and see if that helps. Bactrim and all other antibiotics with sulfa in it makes me nauseated too. If your too sick maybe doc can get you some nausea medicine to take. Answered by Nickole Hennecke 6 months ago.
pearsons chi square? now thats a weird answer... Nausea and upset stomach are pretty common for pretty much all the antibiotics, try taking it with food, that usually helps with the stomach problems a bit. Answered by Ashlie Shintani 6 months ago.
I just remembered that you have to take it with food. I also had an allergic reaction to it when I was close to being done with the dose. So, yeah I can't take Bactrim anymore but I did take it before I had my allergic reaction to it. Answered by Lashonda Maclean 6 months ago.
The most common adverse effects are gastrointestinal disturbances (nausea, vomiting, anorexia)----- I took it and had to stop after my second dose. Answered by Josefine Bandemer 6 months ago.

I'm taking sulfamethoxazole right now for a UTI also, and I've gotten headaches, been lightheaded, and had hot flashes all week since I've been taking them. Those symptoms are to be expected though I guess, they were on the lil side effect sheet the pharmacy gave me. As for the green tongue, dry mouth, and other stuff... I think you should see your doctor. Answered by Catina Calvetti 6 months ago.
Sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim?
my doctor gave me sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim to take, i don't Plan on becoming pregnant now but im just wondering could this medication effect my chances of pregnancy in the future ?
Asked by Omer Dada 6 months ago.
Those are antibiotics. The only way they can effect your chances of pregnancy is if you are also taking birth control pills while on the antibiotics. You can get pregnant while on the pill and taking antibiotics simultaneously. The antibiotics won't prevent you or lower your chances of getting pregnant. Answered by Adrian Krum 6 months ago.

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 Veronica Tullio 6 months ago.

They inhibit seqential steps in the purine synthesis Okay so this is what is says in my book... ...two drugs interfere with different steps of a metabolic sequence leading to the synthesis of precursors of proteins, DNA, and RNA. I don't even know what they means! Someone please help Answered by Shantel Barella 6 months ago.
Synthesis of thymine and uracil nucleosides, as well as some amino acids, requires the molecule folic acid and its derivatives. In bacteria, folic acid cannot be obtained from the environment and so must be produced intracellularly through a series of reactions. Sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim each inhibits an enzyme at a different point in this pathway, ultimately inhibiting the production of the previously mentioned, essential nucleic acid and protein subunits. *Required background knowledge: Bacterial cell walls are composed of peptidoglycans: amino acid-sugars. Transcription is the process of converting information stored in DNA to mRNA, which can then exit the nucleus and undergo translation. Translation is the process of synthesizing proteins from messenger RNA by ribosomes. Adenine and guanine are purine bases; thymine, cytosine, and uracil are pyrimidine bases. Adenine, guanine, and cytosine bases are used in both DNA and RNA. Thymine is DNA-specific, uracil is RNA-specific. Answered by Darcy Castanon 6 months ago.
Will this cause a miscarriage or birth defects?

Asked by Anja Sajorda 6 months ago.
im about one month into pregnancy just found out the other day, but i thought i was when i went to the doctors, but i didnt really think i was. and they told me i had a bladder infection and gave me sulfamethoxazole to take to get rid of it. i took and then found out i was pregnant and i just read the other day it says dont take if pregnant. so does sulfamethoxazole cause a miscarriage or anything this short in my pregnancy? Answered by Carmelia Salmonson 6 months ago.
Sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim is in the FDA pregnancy category C. This means that it is not known whether sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim will harm an unborn baby. This medication affects folic acid in your body, which is necessary for the normal development of a baby. Do not take sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim without first talking to your doctor if you are pregnant. I think that should help. Answered by Tena Bossardet 6 months ago.
Its a Category C...meaning that its not known whether or not its safe to take during pregnancy... Answered by Catheryn Cavers 6 months ago.
i don't think it will matter too much, just discuss it with your doctor or go check out the medicine at safefetus.com Answered by Lacey Wrynn 6 months ago.
