Can I drink alcohol while taking Trimethoprim?
It is generally recommended that you avoid drinking alcohol while taking Trimethoprim or any other antibiotic. Alcohol can increase the risk of side effects from Trimethoprim, such as dizziness, headache, and nausea. Drinking alcohol can also make it more difficult for your body to fight off infection. If you do choose to drink alcohol while taking Trimethoprim, it is important to drink in moderation and to stay hydrated.
When should you take Trimethoprim?
Trimethoprim should be taken as prescribed by your healthcare provider. It is typically taken twice a day, with or without food. If you have trouble swallowing pills, Trimethoprim can be crushed and mixed with water. It is important to take Trimethoprim at evenly spaced intervals to maintain a constant level of medication in your body. Missing doses of Trimethoprim can increase your risk of developing resistance to the medication.

Is Trimethoprim a strong antibiotic?
Trimethoprim is a moderate-strength antibiotic. It is not as strong as some other antibiotics, but it is still effective against many types of bacteria. Trimethoprim should only be used to treat infections that are caused by bacteria. It should not be used to treat viral infections such as the common cold or flu.
Is Trimethoprim a penicillin drug?
No, Trimethoprim is not a penicillin drug. It is an antibiotic that belongs to a class of drugs called sulphonamides. Sulphonamides act by inhibiting the synthesis of folic acid, which is required for the development of bacteria and other microorganisms. Trimethoprim is used to treat infections caused by bacteria. It is also used to prevent the development of Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia (PCP) in people with AIDS. PCP is a serious lung infection that can be fatal. Trimethoprim should not be used to treat viral infections such as the common cold or flu.
