Trimethoprim is an antibiotic medication used to treat various bacterial infections. It works by inhibiting the production of tetrahydrofolic acid, which is essential for the synthesis of DNA, RNA, and proteins in bacteria. By disrupting this process, trimethoprim effectively stops bacterial growth and helps the body's immune system to eradicate the infection. You can buy Trimethoprim online from our pharmacy.

Product Description

What is Trimethoprim and What Does it Treat?

Trimethoprim is a medication that is usually given to patients who are suffering from bacterial infections. The medication normally comes in 200mg tablet form when used for treating this but that can depend on the severity of your infection. Trimethoprim can be used to treat a range of bacterial infections, but some of the most common are kidney infections, acne, and urinary tract infections.If you are looking to order Trimethoprim online then you are in the right place. 


How Does Trimethoprim Work For Kidney Infections?

Trimethoprim can be used to treat kidney infections but isn’t the most common medication used to treat them. Kidney infections sometimes occur if a UTI is left untreated and the infection spreads to the kidney, resulting in more serious problems.

If you suspect that you have a kidney or urinary tract infection that has been left untreated you should contact your GP or doctor urgently as you may need to be sent for tests and scans.


How Does Trimethoprim Work For Acne?

Trimethoprim is also used to treat acne similarly to some other antibiotics like Lymecycline, Minocycline, and Oxytetracycline. Although, Trimethoprim isn’t one of the most common treatments and is only really used in severe cases.


How Does Trimethoprim Work for a UTI?

Trimethoprim is the most common treatment for Cystitis, which is a very common infection in both men and women.

Trimethoprim works for treating UTI’s by stopping bacteria from producing a protein called folate. Folate is the protein that is needed for bacteria to produce DNA and multiply, meaning that the bacteria dies when folate is no longer made, therefore clearing the infection. When using Trimethoprim for your UTI, you should start to notice a difference in your symptoms within 24 hours and the pain should start to ease. The infection should also start to clear up within 3 days after taking your first dose of Trimethoprim.


How to Use Trimethoprim

This medication comes in tablet form and should be taken with water, and can be taken with or without food. You should follow the instructions given to you on the patient information leaflet that comes with the medication to ensure that you are using it correctly.

You should take Trimethoprim at regular intervals between each tablet. If you forget to take a dose of the medication then you should take it as soon as you remember, but if you are nearly ready for your next dose, just wait until the next dose and then carry on as normal.


Dosage for Trimethoprim

The recommended dosage for uncomplicated UTIs is 2 200mg tablets taken daily, one in the morning and one in the evening.

For uncomplicated UTI’s, trimethoprim is normally prescribed for 3 days, which should be long enough for the infection to clear. But in some cases, your doctor can prescribe Trimethoprim for up to 14 days. Your doctor will only usually do this if you’re a male, a pregnant woman, or have a severe complicated UTI that cannot be treated by 3 days of antibiotics.
