Ilvitrim can be used For prevention of being affected with hiv

Can I take ilvitrim if I slept with a hiv positive person so as I can not be infected ## Ilvitrim contains the active ingredients Sulfamethoxazole + Trimethoprim. It is an antibiotic that is used to treat various types of infections. Although the therapeutic regimen of patients with HIV infection, frequently includes trimethoprim + sulfamethoxazole", it is my understanding that the risk of serious side effects vs the potential benefits of the drug, can make it a difficult option for short and/or long term use. Furthermore, I do wonder what benefits, if any, they might be receiving from an antibiotic, since antibiotics in and of themselves cannot be used to prevent or cure viral infections such as HIV. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Sulfamethoxazole + Trimethoprim...

I just took my last pill today, about 3 hours ago. I drank one beer a few days ago while taking it and I did experience more dizziness than usual but was fine. Do you think its okay to drink tonight? ## Hello, Ali! How are you? That close to having taken it, you will likely still experience more nausea and dizziness than usual, so it would be best to avoid drinking. If you feel you can't, then just try not to overdo it. You should be fine in a few days, though. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Can I take this medicine for a tooth ache ## I have a Tooth ache will this antibiotic help

will sulfamethoxazole work for a cyst

Would this work for a cyst on my vagina? I've had a hard rock feeling thing on my vagina lip i want to know if this would help me it hurts so bad.. ## It sounds like you may have a Bartholin's Cyst, which as explained by the NIH, occurs when the gland becomes blocked and fluid builds up in it. Usually, if they are that painful, your doctor will need to drain it for you. Antibiotics don't typically help much, since it isn't an actual infection. Have you consulted your doctor?

Can i take Sulfamethoxazole while using Erythromycin for urine infection? Also my Dr put me on Sulfamethoxazole for a month is there a reason why so long? ## Hello, Mark! How are you? Has your doctor instructed you to take both? This combination can cause a prolonged QTc interval of the heart, which may be dangerous for some people. The FDA lists the other typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. I really can't speak as to your doctor's reasoning, if you're getting UTIs regularly, then it may be for prevention.
