Bactrim DS and its Uses

Bactrim DS is a combination of two antibiotics namely sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim. Sulfamethoxazole belongs to the sulphonamide group of antibiotics.

Bactrim DS is used to treat infections of the urinary tract, middle ear, and respiratory tract (bronchitis). This drug is also used for traveler's diarrhea, and Pneumocystis carini pneumonia in AIDS or cancer patients.

Bactrim DS Mechanism Bactrim DS Working

Trimethoprim and sulfamethoxazole both work inside the bacterial cell, where they stop the manufacture of a substance called folic acid (folate). Folic acid is necessary for the production of genetic material (DNA). Without the production of DNA the bacteria is not able to reproduce, and the spread of the infection is stopped (a bacteriostatic effect).
