Answered questions

Is any difference in Sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim for animals and people?
It's brand name is Septra. Asked by Evelynn Wurtzel 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years ago.

Answered by Carmelia Salmonson 2 years 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 2 years ago.

Is any difference in Sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim for animals and people?
It's brand name is Septra. Asked by Marylyn Delacueva 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 Vicente Bambrick 2 years 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 Jack Camba 2 years 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 Elayne Wasielewski 2 years 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 2 years 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 Russel Simone 2 years ago.

Is any difference in Sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim for animals and people?
It's brand name is Septra. Asked by Loyd Kapinos 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 Tess Vario 2 years 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 Melina Pacas 2 years 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 Adria Villatora 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years ago.

Is any difference in Sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim for animals and people?
It's brand name is Septra. Asked by Latoya Cherep 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years ago.

Its a Category C...meaning that its not known whether or not its safe to take during pregnancy... Answered by Esther Arocho 2 years ago.

Is any difference in Sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim for animals and people?
It's brand name is Septra. Asked by Britteny Chapdelaine 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years ago.

i think im about a few weeks, wont know til i go to the doctors friday. Asked by Herschel Han 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years ago.

Is any difference in Sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim for animals and people?
It's brand name is Septra. Asked by Nenita Yeomans 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years ago.

Its a Category C...meaning that its not known whether or not its safe to take during pregnancy... Answered by Jay Guanio 2 years ago.

Is any difference in Sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim for animals and people?
It's brand name is Septra. Asked by Bradly Stalford 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 Dorathy Mcdermid 2 years 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 Shon Esparaza 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years ago.

Its a Category C...meaning that its not known whether or not its safe to take during pregnancy... Answered by Norma Fornaro 2 years ago.

Is any difference in Sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim for animals and people?
It's brand name is Septra. Asked by Kasandra Ratledge 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 Nicki Soucy 2 years 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.

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 2 years ago.

Is any difference in Sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim for animals and people?
It's brand name is Septra. Asked by Debora Sheetz 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 Ashly Nargi 2 years 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 Noble Dunagin 2 years 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 Eda Flager 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years ago.
