Bactrim - Overview
Bactrim is an antibacterial antibiotic medication that is used to treat and prevent infections when the infection is suspected to be caused by bacteria susceptible to Bactrim. Push Health helps people who need a Bactrim prescription connect with a medical provider who can prescribe Bactrim pills if it is appropriate to do so.
What Is Bactrim Used For
What is Bactrim used for? Some have heard of the use of Bactrim for UTI treatment. Bactrim is indicated for the treatment of urinary tract infections due to susceptible strains of Escherichia coli, Klebsiella, Proteus mirabilis and certain other organisms. Bactrim is also sometimes used in the treatment of MRSA infections. Bactrim is actually a combination medication that consists of two active drugs - sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim. The active drugs in Bactrim tablets interfere with bacterial DNA synthesis, impairing the replication of bacteria.
Bactrim - Dosage and Mechanism
For urinary tract infections, Bactrim is often prescribed as 1 Bactrim DS (double strength) tablet or 2 Bactrim tablets every 12 hours for 10 to 14 days. Bactrim is rapidly absorbed after oral administration and peak blood levels occur within four hours after oral administration in healthy individuals. The active ingredients in Bactrim typically have a half life of under ten hours following oral administration. Bactrim's active ingredients are primarily excreted by the kidneys. The medication is distributed to the sputum, middle ear fluid and vaginal fluid. Sulfamethoxazole inhibits the synthesis of dihydrofolic acid by bacteria. Sulfamethoxazole itself is a white, odorless, tasteless compound. Bactrim is also available in topical forms.
Bactrim - Medication Cost
Bactrim is considered an affordable medication, costing approximately thirty cents per Bactrim 800 mg / 160 mg tablet at many pharmacies in the United States. Some people who need Bactrim may will find that the cost of their Bactrim medication is covered by their insurance. Bactrim coupons are sometimes available online to help reduce the cost.
Can I Buy Bactrim Online?
Bactrim is a prescription medication in the United States and requires a prescription to be dispensed by a pharmacy in the United States. Because of this, one cannot just buy Bactrim online or get Bactrim OTC from a pharmacy in the United States. However, Push Health can connect people who need a Bactrim prescription with a licensed medical provider who can prescribe Bactrim pills if it is appropriate to do so.
Bactrim - Side Effects
Bactrim, like most medications, can cause side effects when used. Bactrim use can cause stone formation and crystalluria and adequate fluid intake is necessary during use. Bactrim can also cause diarrhea, bloody stools, stomach pain, nausea, anorexia and a skin rash. Bactrim can interfere with medication such as digoxin, warfarin and phenytoin when used concurrently. Bactrim should not be used by people with a hypersensitivity or allergy to Bactrim's ingredients or by pregnant or nursing mothers. Bactrim should not be used in people with abnormal liver or kidney function. Questions about side effects related to Bactrim use should be directed to one's medical provider and pharmacist prior to taking the medication.
