Purbac Tabs 480 Mg What Is It For
my pupps head is swolin on her head can i give her the medication ## Purbac contains the active ingredient Cotrimoxazole (Sulfamethoxazole + Trimethoprim), which is effective against a wide range of Gram-positive and Gram-negative organisms. From what I could gather, it can be used for dogs; as some dogs are prescribed it from vets. I don't know however, what the recommended dosage would be for a dog.

i am 2 months pregnant and had taken 6 tabs of cotrimoxazole in one time, does it affect the fetus? How severe would be the damage to the fetus? For this drug i had taken, Do i need to continue Or terminate my pregnancy? ## Hi Lony - Co-Trimoxazole (containing Sulfamethoxazole + Trimethoprim as the active ingredients) is reported to be in Pregnancy Category C in the US and Australia. This is defined as "Animal reproduction studies have shown an adverse effect on the fetus and there are no adequate and well-controlled studies in humans, but potential benefits may warrant use of the drug in pregnant women despite potential risks." [1] With that said, I cannot really give you conclusive information as to how your fetus would be affected. My thought at this point is you should be fi... ...
