Urinary tract infections can be uncomfortable and inconvenient. If left untreated, they can also be dangerous. Trimethoprim is a drug that is used in the prevention and cure of these infections. It is a type of a synthetic antibiotic and it has been included on the World Health Organisation’s list of essential medicines.
Trimethoprim is especially potent in targeting cystitis, which is a common type of bacterial infection that can cause a range of potentially distressing symptoms, including pain when you pass urine, a frequent need to urinate, dark and strong smelling urine, and pain during sexual intercourse. It can also leave you feeling generally achy, tired, sick and unwell. In addition, if left unchecked, there is a risk that cystitis can lead to a potentially serious kidney infections. It is therefore advisable to address these urinary tract infections quickly before they are able to develop. Trimethoprim is an effective and speedy treatment option that can help you to fight infections in this part of your body.
The treatment comes in tablet form, and usually one tablet is taken twice a day. However, additional doses may sometimes be required. If you complete an online consultation on our website, our specialist medical team can recommend the best dosage for you. You can also get more information on this topic by contacting your doctor or speaking to one of our healthcare experts.
You can take Trimethoprim on an empty stomach or with a meal. For the best results, you should aim to take the tablets at the same times each day.
The drug is referred to as a bacteriostatic antibiotic and it works by inhibiting the DNA synthesis of bacteria by reducing levels of tetrahydrofolic acid. This process serves to prevent the multiplication and spread of bacteria, eventually killing them off. The treatment should clear your infection up after a couple of days. If it doesn’t, you may need to seek further medical advice.
There are a number of potential side effects connected with taking Trimethoprim. For example, it can lead to nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, loss of appetite, abnormal taste, trouble sleeping and an allergic rash. If you’re concerned about any of these possible ill-effects or you’d simply like further information on this antibiotic, don’t hesitate to get in touch with our medical specialists by phone or email.
