What is Co-trimoxazole :

Co-trimoxazole is a combination of trimethoprim and sulfamethoxazole.

Co-trimoxazoleis is in a class of medications called sulfonamides. Co-trimoxazole works by stopping the growth of bacteria. Like all antibiotics, Co-Trimoxazole only works against some types of bacteria. This means that Co-trimoxazole is only suitable for treating some types of infections.

Co-Trimoxazole can be used to treat or prevent:

  • Treatment and prevention of Pneumocystis jirovecii pneumonitis (PJP).
  • Treatment and prophylaxis of toxoplasmosis.
  • Treatment of nocardiosis

The following infections may be treated with Co-Trimoxazole where there is bacterial evidence of sensitivity to Co-Trimoxazole and good reason to prefer the combination of antibiotics in Co-Trimoxazole to a single antibiotic:

    • Acute uncomplicated urinary tract infection.
    • Acute otitis media.
    • Acute exacerbation of chronic bronchitis.
