Has your daughter been tested for vesico-ureteral reflux? A condition where urine from the bladder is pushed back thru the ureters into the kidney during urination. The bladder never completely empties due to a defect in the valve between bladder and ureter. The residual urine gives bacteria a chance to multiply causing chronic UTI's. I was told by a pediatric nephrologist when my daughter was diagnosed at age two that this is condition primarily affects girls and is one of the main causes if chronic UTI's in children.

All medications come with the risk of side effects. Sulfamethoxazole, the active ingredient in Septran, is an antibiotic and while it is unusual to be prescribed for that long, it is, sometimes, necessary.

Common side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, skin rash and diarrhea.
