Based on my research, dosage requirements for this medication can depend largely on what you are taking it for. However the "average" oral dose of Sulfamethoxazole (800 mg) + Trimethoprim (160 mg) DS (double strength) for an adult would be to take a pill every 12 hours for 10 to 14 days. Even if this is the average dosage for most conditions, it would probably still be best to confirm what your doctor recommends for YOU.

This oral medication should be taken by mouth with a full glass of water or as directed by your doctor.
