Is Sulfatrim Only Available in Brand-Name Form?
What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?If you do not take your Sulfatrim as scheduled, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose of the medication. Try not to miss doses, as this increases the risk of developing an antibiotic-resistant infection.
Sulfatrim comes in one strength -- Sulfatrim Pediatric suspension (oral liquid), with 200 mg of sulfamethoxazole and 40 mg of trimethoprim per teaspoonful (per 5 mL).
At one point, Sulfatrim tablets and adults Sulfatrim suspension were available, but are no longer being made. The only difference between the adult and pediatric suspensions is the flavor (the pediatric suspension is cherry flavored, while the adult suspension was fruit-licorice flavored).
StorageStore Sulfatrim at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. Make sure to keep it in an airtight container. Keep Sulfatrim and all medications out of the reach of children.
