Detailed product information

What is Trimethoprim?

Trimethoprim is a synthetic antibiotic used to fight bacteria that affects bladder, kidney, traveler’s diarrhea , and ear infections.

How should you take Trimethoprim/ TMP?

The usual dosage is 200 mg orally, twice a day for three days. Be sure to complete the treatment even if you feel better after a few days.

Who should consider other options over trimethoprim?

  • Pregnant/ breastfeeding: If you are pregnant or breast feeding, it is advisable that you consider other options because it may harm your baby while pregnant. While breastfeeding it is secreted by breastfeeding milk, therefore components will pass through to your baby.
  • Allergy to medicine components
  • Folate deficiency Megaloblastic anemia
  • Patients taking anticonvulsivant therapy
  • Elderly patients

Are there any interactions while taking Thrimetropim?

It should not be taken if you have already received previous treatment for a urinary tract infection three months previously. If you are taking any other medication, be sure to tell your doctor to decide if this treatment best suits you.

What should you do if you miss a dose?

Take the missed dose as soon as you remember, if it is too close for the next scheduled dose, then don´t take any extra pills. The extra pill will not compensate the one that has not been taken.

When should you stop taking your medicine?

Lower tract UTI’s are usually treated with oral antibiotics for up to 3-7 days of treatment in healthy, young and non-pregnant women. Be sure to not skip or discontinue your treatment just because you feel better. In fact, doing so might just make those strains of bacteria immune to those antibiotics and that can lead to recurrent urinary tract infections or other complications such as pyelonephritis.
