Hi Fanyana,

Based on my research, Ilvitrim contains the active ingredients Sulfamethoxazole + Trimethoprim; a sulfonamide antibacterial combination that is used in the treatment of a variety of bacterial infections. (not just limited to HIV). If your child's doctor prescribed it for what appears to be an upper respiratory or sinus related infection, Ilvitrim does sound like an appropriate medication for the job. However if you're asking whether or not a powerful antibiotic like this is good for your baby, my personal answer would be no, due to it's high risk of side effects. In which case, I would personally consider other more natural alternatives (i.e. raw garlic, raw honey, raw apple cider vinegar, juicing, etc...).

You can learn more about this drug on the page for Sulfamethoxazole + Trimethoprim Details

I hope this advice helps!

Hi. My 6 week old daughter was given the ilvitrim suspension, but I was not told about the dosage. It just says 2.5 mL four times a day on the bottle. Is that the correct dosage?
