Sulfur In Sulfa-based Antibiotics?Updated
how much sulfur is in sulfameth/trimethoprim?
Sulfamethoxazole with Trimethoprim is a generic for the antibiotic Bactrim, which is used to treat various types of infections.
And in regards to this question, there really isn't sulfur in it, per seâ€¦ what it really means is that this is a sulfa based drug, or it's derived from it... and the amount of sulfa based material in it is equivalent to the amount of Sulfamethoxazole that's in it.

To put it a little more simply for future readers, if you have a sensitivity to sulfa or are allergic to it, then you should not take this antibiotic as there is a very high likelihood that you will also have a bad reaction to it.
