Whats the difference between SMP and SMZ-TMP DS tablets?( for cats and dogs)?
Asked by Arnette Steff 1 year ago.

I've never heard of SMP. SMZ is sulfamethoxazole and SMZ-TMP can also be written as TMP-SMZ, it doesn't matter, it's an abbreviation for a fixed combination of sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim, 1 part trimethoprim to 5 parts sulfamethoxazole . Trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole, also written as co-trimoxazole and also abbreviated as SXT. DS means double strength. The difference is what's in them. Sulfamethoxazole is a sulfonamide antibiotic and trimethoprim is a dihydrofolate reductase inhibitor. The two medications work in different ways. Next time, please animal questions in the Cats and the Dogs category. This one is for people. Answered by Danial Deneen 1 year ago.

What is the difference between Bactrim DS and just Bactrim?
Asked by Eli Sager 1 year ago.

Bactrim DS is Double Strength and is taken half as often: Bactrim is one of many brand names for a common antibiotic combination containing trimethoprim (TMP) and sulfamethoxazole (SMX) in a fixed combination at a 1:5 ratio, either 80 mg TMP plus 400 mg SMX (called Bactrim), or a double-strength tablet (called Bactrim DS) containing 160 mg TMP plus 800 mg SMX. The DS form is taken every twelve hours (twice a day). The "single strength" form, Bactrim, has half as much and is taken twice as often (four times a day). Answered by Lavonna Louthen 1 year ago.

This Site Might Help You. RE: What is the difference between Bactrim DS and just Bactrim? Answered by Gustavo Frabizio 1 year 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 Serafina Agosto 1 year ago.

Don't have a lot to add to the accurate information that's been posted, except that it's available as a generic. If your healthcare professional prescribes it, please take the entire dose that's prescribed, even if you're feeling better partway through that bottle of pills (and that DS size of pill can be a big one).

Confused about antibiotics for MRSA?
Recently, I tested positive for MRSA and had to drain an abscess on my right arm. When looking at the names of my antibiotics(Cephalexin and Sulfamethoxazole) I noticed that Cephalexin is of the Methicillin family. I thought MRSA was resistant to Methicillin? Any information would be appreciated, thank you! Asked by Cinthia Halcomb 1 year ago.

@Daniel, what do you mean MRSA *can* become methicillin-resistant. IT ALREADY IS! Is the name MRSA not a clue?? John, I see you added some info about the meds. Keflex is a brand name for cephalexin and this is a cephalosporin antibiotic. And you are quite right that cephalosporins are ineffective against MRSA because they work in the same way that penicillins work, but they aren't in the "methicillin" family. They're all beta-lactam antibiotics, they have no activity against MRSA. Methicilin is a penicillin drug. It's related to penicillin, just like ampicillin, piperacillin, ticercillin, oxacillin, nafcillin, dicloxacillin, amoxicillin, Augmentin (which is a brand name and a combination drug that contains amoxicillin) and all the rest of the penicillin drugs that end with "cillin". And of course this includes penicillin, penicillin G, penicillin V and penicillin VK. And methicillin is a generic name, no capital M unless at the beginning of a sentence. Instead of sulfamathoxazole alone, I'm surprised you weren't prescribed Bactrim DS, DS means double strength and this med is trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, another combination drug. John, you need to speak to your doctor. Maybe this is some new trend although I've never heard of it and it sounds crazy to me. Did the prescription say cephalexin?? It's possible this is a pharmacy error but you can easily find out from your doctor's office. This info is in your chart. And your pharmacy is required to keep the paper prescription so you could start there by finding out exactly what it says. You may not have to contact your doctor. But if your doctor really did write for Keflex, you need to notify her/him as soon as possible. Answered by Sterling Wojewoda 1 year ago.

MRSA (methicillan resistant staph aureus) can become resistant to methicillin. Having both antibiotics will help fight off infection. Taking methicillan by itself many times can cause the infection (staph aureus) to become more resistant -- thus becoming methicillan resistant stap aureus (MRSA). Your wound should heal with both antibiotics. Answered by Marti Bahrs 1 year ago.

Are you sure they said MRSA & not MSSA (Methicillin Sensitive Staph Aureus)? Ask your physician. Answered by Jonell Avent 1 year ago.

Even if it's in the family it can still be productive. Although that maybe why they gave you two types of antibiotics, to help the other out. Answered by Donovan Shelling 1 year ago.

But if your doctor really did write for Keflex, you need to notify her/him as soon as possible. Answered by Elias Utzinger 1 year ago.

MRSA (methicillan resistant staph aureus) can become resistant to methicillin. Having both antibiotics will help fight off infection. Taking methicillan by itself many times can cause the infection (staph aureus) to become more resistant -- thus becoming methicillan resistant stap aureus (MRSA). Your wound should heal with both antibiotics. Answered by Arianna Turbeville 1 year ago.

Are you sure they said MRSA & not MSSA (Methicillin Sensitive Staph Aureus)? Ask your physician. Answered by Madelene Seecharan 1 year ago.

Even if it's in the family it can still be productive. Although that maybe why they gave you two types of antibiotics, to help the other out. Answered by Abigail Paris 1 year ago.

Whats the difference between SMP and SMZ-TMP DS tablets?( for cats and dogs)?
Asked by Alma Leahman 1 year ago.

I've never heard of SMP. SMZ is sulfamethoxazole and SMZ-TMP can also be written as TMP-SMZ, it doesn't matter, it's an abbreviation for a fixed combination of sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim, 1 part trimethoprim to 5 parts sulfamethoxazole . Trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole, also written as co-trimoxazole and also abbreviated as SXT. DS means double strength. The difference is what's in them. Sulfamethoxazole is a sulfonamide antibiotic and trimethoprim is a dihydrofolate reductase inhibitor. The two medications work in different ways. Next time, please animal questions in the Cats and the Dogs category. This one is for people. Answered by Rosia Economou 1 year ago.

What is the difference between Bactrim DS and just Bactrim?
Asked by Sherlene Davidian 1 year ago.

Bactrim DS is Double Strength and is taken half as often: Bactrim is one of many brand names for a common antibiotic combination containing trimethoprim (TMP) and sulfamethoxazole (SMX) in a fixed combination at a 1:5 ratio, either 80 mg TMP plus 400 mg SMX (called Bactrim), or a double-strength tablet (called Bactrim DS) containing 160 mg TMP plus 800 mg SMX. The DS form is taken every twelve hours (twice a day). The "single strength" form, Bactrim, has half as much and is taken twice as often (four times a day). Answered by Tami Kopel 1 year ago.

This Site Might Help You. RE: What is the difference between Bactrim DS and just Bactrim? Answered by Kittie Melott 1 year 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 Tiffaney Pascuzzi 1 year ago.

If your healthcare professional prescribes it, please take the entire dose that's prescribed, even if you're feeling better partway through that bottle of pills (and that DS size of pill can be a big one).

Confused about antibiotics for MRSA?
Recently, I tested positive for MRSA and had to drain an abscess on my right arm. When looking at the names of my antibiotics(Cephalexin and Sulfamethoxazole) I noticed that Cephalexin is of the Methicillin family. I thought MRSA was resistant to Methicillin? Any information would be appreciated, thank you! Asked by Mallory Schneiter 1 year ago.

@Daniel, what do you mean MRSA *can* become methicillin-resistant. IT ALREADY IS! Is the name MRSA not a clue?? John, I see you added some info about the meds. Keflex is a brand name for cephalexin and this is a cephalosporin antibiotic. And you are quite right that cephalosporins are ineffective against MRSA because they work in the same way that penicillins work, but they aren't in the "methicillin" family. They're all beta-lactam antibiotics, they have no activity against MRSA. Methicilin is a penicillin drug. It's related to penicillin, just like ampicillin, piperacillin, ticercillin, oxacillin, nafcillin, dicloxacillin, amoxicillin, Augmentin (which is a brand name and a combination drug that contains amoxicillin) and all the rest of the penicillin drugs that end with "cillin". And of course this includes penicillin, penicillin G, penicillin V and penicillin VK. And methicillin is a generic name, no capital M unless at the beginning of a sentence. Instead of sulfamathoxazole alone, I'm surprised you weren't prescribed Bactrim DS, DS means double strength and this med is trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, another combination drug. John, you need to speak to your doctor. Maybe this is some new trend although I've never heard of it and it sounds crazy to me. Did the prescription say cephalexin?? It's possible this is a pharmacy error but you can easily find out from your doctor's office. This info is in your chart.
