Co-Trimoxazole - Dosage and How to Use

How should Co-Trimoxazole be used?

​Co-Trimoxazole may be presented in a tablet, syrup or injectable form, of which will be chosen by your physician.  This medication may be taken with or without food.

What should I do if I miss a dose?

​If you forget to take a dose, take it as soon as you remember. However, if you remember the missed dose at the time you are due to take the next dose, omit the missed dose and only take the regularly scheduled dose. Do not take two doses to make up for the missed dose.

It is important to complete the course of antibiotic as prescribed by the doctor. Do not stop the antibiotic course midway, even if you feel better, unless you develop an allergic reaction to the antibiotic or experience severe side effects. In that case, see a doctor immediately.
