More facts about Generic Bactrim (Trimethoprim 480 mg):

What is Generic Bactrim? Is it different from the branded drug?

The branded drug Bactrim is a bacteriostatic antibiotic based on the active substance called Trimethoprim. Bactrim is not the original name, it is a brand owned by a certain company while the same drugs under the names such as Trimethoprim, Ipral, Trimopan, and others are used all over the world. First, the medication was used in 1962 in Finland. Currently, it is included in the list of Essential Medicines compiled by the World Health Organization. It means, that the medication is considered a crucial part of health care system of every country.

Generic drugs are analogs of the branded medication manufactured and sold under different names. They do not differ from the branded drug by quality and effect but are usually less advertised and therefore, cheaper. In your country you can find some of the available generics. But not all of them are available in all countries. Some generics are registered only in a certain region or a country and are much cheaper than the internationally sold drugs for obvious reasons such as fewer applications for approval, transportation, promotion, and so on. You can also enjoy their lower prices if you buy Bactrim online from our drugstore.

You should never use antibiotics for a common cold or flu as these are viral infections. If the symptoms do not go away for more than 2 weeks, then you need to go to a doctor and make a susceptibility test which will show what antibiotics you should use.

The best time to buy Bactrim is when your doctor appoints you the therapy with the drug. In general, the medication is a first line choice for bladder and urinary tract infections and a second line choice for other conditions such as otitis media (middle ear infections) and diarrhea induced by certain bacteria.

Patients with kidney dysfunction with creatinine clearance between 15 milliliters per minute and 30 milliliters per minute should take a half of the standard dosage. People with severe kidney impairment and creatinine clearance less than 15 milliliters per minute should not use the drug.

In more severe cases, the therapy with the medication can be complicated by aseptic meningitis, malignant exudative erythema, vomiting, anorexia, and nephropathy. Regardless of the severity of the symptoms, you need to inform your doctor immediately as in their occurrence other medication is selected and if severe damage to the health was done, appropriate treatment is prescribed.

Interactions of Trimethoprim with other drugs

Trimethoprim is recommended to be used together with sulfamethoxazole to enhance the effect of both drugs and increase bactericidal properties.

Medications that render toxic effect on the bone marrow enhance the negative effect of the antibacterial drug on the bone marrow as well.

Cyclosporine when taken with Trimethoprim increases the likelihood of nephrotic toxicity complications.

Dapsone use along with Generic Bactrim causes slowed down excretion of both drugs from the body and their increased concentration.

Drugs for the treatment of neoplasms, medications for the prevention and treatment of malaria, anticonvulsants and other drugs that inhibit the synthesis of folic acid, when combined with Trimethoprim increase the possibility of complications such as megaloblastic anemia.

The drug slows down the excretion of Procainamide.

When combined along with Rifampicin, the drug increases its metabolic rate and time of the effect two times.

Slowing down the metabolic rate of anticoagulants of the warfarin group, the drug enhances their effect.

Before you order Trimethoprim, make sure to inform your doctor about all other drugs, supplements, and diagnoses that you have. You may think that you are not using any medications that can negatively interact with the drug but be mistaken.

Overdose of Bactrim (Trimethoprim)

An overdose with the drug is accompanied with nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, dizziness, blurry vision, and central nervous system function impairment. In an extreme overdose, anuria (inability to urinate) and blood in the urine can be observed. Chronic overdose can impair the process of folic acid production and cause the inhibition of the hematopoietic system (leukopenia, thrombocytopenia). In case you notice any of these side effects, call your local poison help line or seek urgent medical assistance.
