What types of food should be avoided while taking sulfamethoxazole tmp ds? My husband is taking this for a urinary tract infection. But I have been told to avoid citrus fruits while taking the medication. He works outside all day too. What about sun exposure? ## Sulfamethoxazole with Trimethoprim is an antibiotic, used to treat various types of infections. The thing to avoid with it is grapefruit, this includes the juice, as it can have an effect on how well the drug works.
