does sulfamethoxazole contain sulfa

I am allergic to sulphur does smz/temp dos have sulphur in it ## Hello, Marie! How are you? Yes, it is a sulfa based antibiotic, so there is a chance you may be allergic to it. The FDA warns that allergic reactions to it may include symptoms, such as nausea, dizziness, trouble breathing, hives, itching and possibly anaphylactic shock. However, if you are only allergic to sulfur, you might be able to take it. I am allergic to this antibiotic, but I am not allergic to sulfur. How did you discover you were allergic to it? That might help clear this up, because they are different. ## I used a sulfer medication for a UT I 30 minutes later I started hives. I must note that the medication had expired

I took my last pill last night. Its been 12 since. Is it ok to have a drink now? ## I meant it's been 12 hours since my last pill ## Hello, Cece! How are you? It could still cause you to experience more side effects than usual, as reported by the FDA. So you may get more nauseous, dizzy and drowsy than usual, because the medication will still be active in your body. However, if your doctor approves of your imbibing, please make sure that you aren't driving and won't be operating any dangerous machinery. Is there anything else I can help with?

someone please tell me the shelf life of sulfamethoxazole when being stored in a cool place. I've had this since 10/2013 it's now 2016 Can I take this now????? ## Hello, Pamela! How are you? If it is in bottle as dispensed by your pharmacy, it has an expiration date of one year, from the date you received it, because those bottles expose it to the elements that cause degradation. If it is in the original factory sealed bottle, then it is good for approximately 4 years, from the date you received it. If it is expired, it loses efficacy and could cause you to develop antibiotic resistant bacteria, so you should dispose of it and see your doctor for a new prescription, if an antibiotic is required. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, head...
