Can I use purbac double strength while I am taking contreceptives that are called Nordette? I have recently started both medications. ## Hello, Tray! How are you? According to the details provided by the NIH, this antibiotic may reduce the efficacy of your oral contraceptives, so it would be best to use a back up method of contraception, such as condoms, while you are taking the antibiotic.

Purbac for mild acne and pimples

Hi Doc. I would like to know will taking purbac get rid of pimples? And also how long should i take it for it to be effective. I have gotten it from from the pharmacy and was instructed to take one a day. ## Hello Moeyy, First I would like to say that I am not a medical professional. Each purbac tablet contains the active ingredients Trimethoprim 80 mg and Sulphamethoxazole 400mg. Both of these medications are used to fight bacterial infections, so unless your pimples are caused by some sort of bacterial infection it is not likely that this medication will have any effect. To answer your follow up question, the manufacturer's website gives the following administration instructions. [1] Prubac Adult Tablets Children 6-12 years: One Purbac Adult tablet every 12 hours after meals. Adul...

C24 antibiotic tablets / Purbac

My dr prescribed Purbac Ds 950 mg tabs, but the tab the chemist gave to me does not look like the correct tablet, as there is the word C24 engraved on the tab. Is this the right one or not? ## In my investigation, neither Purbac Adult, Purbac DS or Purbac Paediatric suspension are available in 950mg dosage forms. The manufacturer ("Pharmacare Limited") only lists 40mg/200mg; 80mg/400mg; 160mg/800mg - not to mention, 950mg would only represent one of the two active ingredients in Purbac (Trimethoprim/Sulphamethoxazole). To ensure that you received the appropriate medication, I would encourage you to contact the chemist where you got it from. Was your dosage custom made/tailored by your doctor to meet your own unique set of circumstances? I am also not finding any reliable data on...

Stopping Purbac caused weight gain

Hi I have been taking Purbac, Aluvia, Tremoc and Activio vitamin for 3 years. My new doctor stop prescribing it upon seeing my CD4 account of 575. I have experienced extreme weight gain and night sweats around my neck and face even during the day. My husband has also gained belly fat since stopping it he's also been on purbac. Thanks ## Purbac is an antibiotic, it contains Sulfamethoxazole, and Trimethoprim, it is most commonly used to treat bacterial infections. The NIH lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, non-allergic skin rash, diarrhea, and headache. Weight gain is not a normal side effect. How are you feeling, now? Has there been any change? How old are you both of you? There is a chance that these issues could be due to just normal aging.
