Sulfa Trim Ds Tab
I am coumadin and have a terrible time with level fluctuations. I bleed very quickly. What is the interaction problem with sulfatrim? I am taking it for a sinus infection. ## Sulfamethoxazole with Trimethoprim, the active ingredients in Bactrim, is an antibiotic that is used to treat various types of infections.

This can result in increased bleeding dangers. Does your doctor know you are on both of these? ...

ilvitrim suspension

In which case, I would personally consider other more natural alternat... ...

Because Cefdinir is also a antibiotc, wii it work just as well as Sulfameth tmp ds tabs. ## It really depends on what type of infection is being treated.
