Bactrim DS general information

What is Bactrim DS used for?

Bactrim DS tablets 800/160mg are a high strength combination antibiotic used to treat a range of infections caused by susceptible bacteria, (as well as specific fungal infections) in various parts of the body, where a combination antibiotic is more beneficial than a single antibiotic.  Bactrim DS is used to treat acute uncomplicated urinary tract infections such as cystitis, respiratory tract infections such as acute exacerbations of bronchitis, acute otitis media (middle ear infection), genital tract infections such as gonorrhoea, and infections of the gastrointestinal system, such as gastroenteritis due to E.coli and shigellosis caused by Shigella.  Bactrim DS tablets is also used to treat nocardiosis, a bacterial lung infection caused by nocardia a bacteria found in soil and stagnant water.  Bactrim DS can also be used to treat and prevent other forms of infection including the lung infection Pneumocystis jirovecii pneumonitis (pneumonia or PJP), a form of pneumonia caused by the yeast like fungus Pneumocystis jirovecii, which is an opportunistic infection in people who are immunocompromised, such as due to HIV infection; also toxoplasmosis, a parasitic infection caused by the intracellular parasite Toxoplasma gondii that can cause flu-like symptoms.

How does Bactrim DS work?
