can bactrim be sued in treating tonsillitis. I was given a prescription at an urgent care clinic for tonsillitis but have only used this in the past for urinary tract infections.

If the dr. believes that Streptococcus is the cause of your tonsillitis (one of the most comon) then yes. Streptococcus is a bactiria and bactrim is used to kill bactiria.

Bactrim CAN be prescribed for Tonsillitis, also for Urinary Tract Infection, Otitis Media(Ear Infection)
ie. bacterial conditions, but if your Tonsilitis is recurrent (3 or 4 times a year), you might consider seeing a OTOLAYRINCOLOGIST (Ear, nose,
eye specialist).

In reference to the original post, Bactrim is an antibiotic that's effective at treating various types of infections, it's also one of those preferred for MRSA.

You can learn more Bactrim details here.

In regards to the post from not feeling well, Ceftin contains the active ingredient Cefuroxime, which is an antibiotic that's also used to treat various types of infections.

However, it shouldn't be used unless the presence of an infection has actually been confirmed by a doctor, due to the risk of developing antibiotic resistance, if it's used improperly.

You can learn more Cefuroxime details here.

Are there any other questions?
