Bactrim D.S. is a prescription medication that contains a combination of two antibiotics, sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim. It is used to treat bacterial infections, such as urinary tract infections, ear infections, and respiratory infections.
Sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim work by inhibiting the growth and replication of bacteria, thereby reducing the spread of infection. Bactrim D.S. is typically taken orally in tablet form and the dosage will depend on the individual’s medical condition, age, and response to treatment.
Bactrim D.S. is commonly used in both adults and children and is considered to be a safe and effective medication for treating bacterial infections. However, like all medications, it may cause some side effects, such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and allergic reactions. It is important to discuss any concerns with a healthcare professional before starting treatment with Bactrim D.S.
