The white oblong scored tablet with IP 272 on it contains Sulfamethoxazole 800 mg + Trimethoprim 160 mg, and is used to treat a variety of bacterial infections.

Based on what you are describing it sounds like you may be having a serious reaction to either the drug, or the procedure which you recently underwent. I would suggest you notify your prescribing physician ASAP.

I have one Kidney and the dr. Put me on Sulfamethoxazole ip272.
I see that that is800mgs, and I take it twicea day. I read that it can form crystals that can damage the kidneys. It seems to help cure the Bronchitis, but I m afraid of damaging my one kidney. Should I stop taking it?

I'm looking for the name of the drug I took when I had pneumonia. I started out with cold symptoms, took Mucinex DM and Mucinex cough suppressant and still feel stuffed up with a cough. I thought I was getting better but the symptoms seem to start over. Do I need an antibiotic? I have the IP 272 tablet from when I had pneumonia. Should I use it for this?

@Mimi, IP 272 is a combination antibiotic Sulfamethoxazole-Trimethoprim (SMX-TMP) [see the first reply on this page]. Since you previously had pneumonia I would recommend seeing your doctor ASAP just in case it's a different type of infection with a possible recurrence of the pneumonia that your previous prescription may not have eradicated.
