Answered questions

Is any difference in Sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim for animals and people?
It's brand name is Septra. Asked by Evelynn Wurtzel 1 year 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 1 year 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 1 year 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 1 year 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 1 year 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 1 year 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 1 year 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 1 year 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 1 year 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 1 year 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 1 year 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 1 year ago.


Is sulfamethoxazole making her sick?

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 1 year 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 1 year ago.

Is any difference in Sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim for animals and people?
It's brand name is Septra. Asked by Marylyn Delacueva 1 year 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 Letty Leyendecker 1 year 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 Yuk Gilner 1 year 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 Jacinto Rodarte 1 year 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 Jenna Seip 1 year 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 Clara Jaji 1 year 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 Vanesa Reents 1 year 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.

Is any difference in Sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim for animals and people?
It's brand name is Septra. Asked by Loyd Kapinos 1 year 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 Mirian Rebuldela 1 year 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 Maye Aksamit 1 year 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 Melissa Standlee 1 year 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 Janae Feoli 1 year 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 Clementine Hillers 1 year 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 Jamal Bagnaschi 1 year 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 Damaris Heick 1 year 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 Brandon Prejsnar 1 year ago.

Is any difference in Sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim for animals and people?
It's brand name is Septra. Asked by Latoya Cherep 1 year 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 Harold Schmidbauer 1 year 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 Fred Gail 1 year 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 Kacy Dowers 1 year 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 Magen Schook 1 year 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 Christopher Claudio 1 year 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 Cherry Cogbill 1 year 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 Vanetta Slightam 1 year 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 Cletus Mitchel 1 year 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 Francis Aricas 1 year 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 Josette Lowing 1 year 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 Chong Muraoka 1 year ago.

Is any difference in Sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim for animals and people?
It's brand name is Septra. Asked by Britteny Chapdelaine 1 year 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 Exie Silverthorne 1 year 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 Dorathy Liesch 1 year 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 Rona Landres 1 year 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 Rheba Whetzel 1 year 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 Terra Busto 1 year 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 Yun Janecek 1 year 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 Shea Maschio 1 year 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 Gaye Niederhaus 1 year 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 Romaine Juliano 1 year ago.

i think im about a few weeks, wont know til i go to the doctors friday. Asked by Herschel Han 1 year 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 Marcelino Fuhr 1 year 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 Raymundo Poynter 1 year ago.

Is any difference in Sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim for animals and people?
It's brand name is Septra. Asked by Nenita Yeomans 1 year 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 Annamaria Crogier 1 year 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 Flor Yerdon 1 year 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 Elois Edlow 1 year 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 Shanna Taki 1 year 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 Kacey Oflynn 1 year 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 Suzi Caviness 1 year 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 Sherri Berey 1 year 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 Scottie Karley 1 year 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 Leora Philson 1 year ago.


Will this cause a miscarriage or birth defects?
i think im about a few weeks, wont know til i go to the doctors friday. Asked by Melanie Dyen 1 year 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 Charlena Lentine 1 year 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 Ching Sawin 1 year ago.

Is any difference in Sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim for animals and people?
It's brand name is Septra. Asked by Bradly Stalford 1 year 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 Louann Alesse 1 year 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 Cleveland Windham 1 year 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 Ken Mckellar 1 year 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 Deloise Sozzi 1 year 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 Myrle Montpas 1 year 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 Kevin Ashcraft 1 year ago.

Will this cause a miscarriage or birth defects?
i think im about a few weeks, wont know til i go to the doctors friday. Asked by Jody Retzer 1 year 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 Cecila Chauez 1 year 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 Asa Magill 1 year ago.

Is any difference in Sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim for animals and people?
It's brand name is Septra. Asked by Kasandra Ratledge 1 year 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 Tonja Doiron 1 year 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 Russell Scheidegger 1 year 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 Mario Achille 1 year 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 Wiley Castile 1 year 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 Sherrie Delaporte 1 year 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 Grayce Vieau 1 year 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 Emory Herda 1 year ago.

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 Yoshie Hjalmarson 1 year ago.

Is any difference in Sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim for animals and people?
It's brand name is Septra. Asked by Debora Sheetz 1 year 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 Son Pressman 1 year 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 Cleo Lycan 1 year 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 Bobby Kubitz 1 year 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 Veda Derman 1 year 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 Julieann Deiters 1 year 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 Joye Goldrich 1 year ago.

Will it work the same? and how long does it take to work? I will choose the best answer.Thanks!! Answered by America Ahrendes 1 year ago.
