Can I Cut Bactrim In Half

Updated
Pixie Says:

I am cutting the Bactrim in half. I took full dosage two days but I cannot chance a fall so I cut in half. If I have dizziness, I will not finish. I can get natural product for UTIs. I do not take anything but an occasional ibuprophen so my system is clean. I never take prescribed drugs as a rule.

Yes, this is not a time released medication, so you can safely cut it, however you should only do so under the approval of your doctor.

The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash, and diarrhea,

Has there been any change? How are you doing?

Can I take a half dose of Bactrim to lower my dose because 800mg is too high for me? I've been on macrobid for 3 days (uti) but it's making me sick and does not seem to be working. I still have urgency and slight irritation.

Hi I was prescribed Bactrim and was thinking of cutting it in half as well. I’m so sensitive to medicine and the tablets seem too high of a dose for me. Did it work? Did you still feel side effects?
