Urinary tract infections Trimethoprim TMP

Uses
TMP (Trimethoprim) is an antibiotic, which is primarily used to treat urinary tract infections. Other uses include treating ear infections, preventing kidney infections, treating patients for certain types of lung infections (pneumocystitis carinii pneumonia) and various other uses. This drug works by inhibiting the bacteria's production of folic acid (folate). A lack of folic acid prevents the bacteria from producing DNA, thereby stopping them from spreading, allowing any bacteria that remain to be destroyed by the immune system.

Dosage and Administration
TMP (Trimethoprim) tablets are taken by mouth. However, prior to commencing treatment, a medical assessment is required, so that your doctor can determine the proper dose. Adults treating cystitis are often told to take 100mg at 12 hour intervals (or else 200mg every 24 hours), with treatment lasting for a period of 10 days. Other conditions will require different doses, and in all cases, the dosage regimen prescribed by your doctor must be strictly followed.

Side effects
Patients who take TMP (Trimethoprim) may sometimes experience side effects, such as:

  • Itchiness
  • Sore tongue
  • Appetite loss
  • Changes in sense of taste
  • Pain affecting the stomach

Side effects should be reported to your doctor. In some cases, severe reactions may be possible. See your doctor immediately if you notice fever, chills, aches affecting the joints, blue discoloured fingernails or skin, sores around the mouth or any other symptoms of a serious reaction.

Precautions
Although rare, there is a possibility that taking this drug may reduce the amounts of blood cells in the blood. Ask your doctor about all of the risks of treatment before you take this medicine.

Do not stop treatment before you have finished the entire course of medication prescribed unless your doctor tells you to. Ceasing treatment too early may result in a return of symptoms.

Seek immediate emergency medical attention if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms to watch for, which may be indicative of a reaction, include skin rashes, hives, swelling of the face or limbs, trouble breathing, and trouble swallowing.

Always use TMP (Trimethoprim) as you have been prescribed by your doctor. Never self-medicate or change your dosage without first consulting your doctor. The correct dosage can vary depending on your health, medical history, and the severity of the condition being treated.

This medication may not be safe for all patients. Before you begin using it always disclose the following to your doctor:

  • If you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • If you suffer from any allergies.
  • If you suffer from any other health conditions or illnesses.
  • If you are using any other medicine (including all non-prescription).
  • If you are using any supplements, vitamins, or herbal products of any kind.
