I have been on this medication since tuesday (and have not experienced any side effects) when I thought my wound was infected, but it was not. My doctor gave me about 25 pills to take as a precaution to avoid it getting infected in the future. If I do not take the pills for 36 hours, will I be able to drink alcohol without having side effects? Also, what is the likelihood of my wound getting infected if I do not take the antibiotic for over 48 hours? ## Hello, Colleen! How are you? It is really best to abstain from alcohol, while taking any prescription medication. When you imbibe while on an antibiotic, it can cause worsening of the side effects, so you may experience nausea, dizziness and drowsiness. It can cause one drink to affect you as if you'd had 2 and so on. And taking a br... ...

Had 3 UTIs this year. Urologist suggested this med be taken daily for a year. I also have epilepsy and take topomax, dilantin, and climazapan. i think it is a terrible idea. What think you? ## Hello, Stepbystep! How are you? The Sulfamethoxazole in the antibiotic can increase the effect of your Dilantin, which does create a risk of it reaching toxic levels. Why did he pick that antibiotic? It's actually not the one that's usually used for this, the one regularly used for a period of time as a daily UTI preventative is Nitrofurantoin, which isn't listed as having any interactions with your medications. ## I don't know why he chose this rx.

is sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim related to penicillin Im allergic to Penicillin I have a cold and I wanted to make sure I am safe taking this drug ## Hello, Renay! How are you? I'm sorry that your sick. No, this is a sulfa based antibiotic in a different drug family. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, joint aches, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. However, antibiotics will not do anything to treat a cold. Colds are caused by viruses and antibiotics, such as this, are only effective at treating bacterial infections. Additionally, taking it when it isn't appropriate creates the risk of your developing antibiotic resistant bacteria. Is there anything else I can help with? ...
