can the flector patch and bactrim be taken together

I am currently using the flector patch and have a urinary track infection and was prescribed bactrim. Is it ok to take these together? ## Hello, Breeze! How are you? The Bactrim can actual increase the efficacy of the Flector, but it's not considered to be a dangerous interaction, unless someone is extremely sensitive to mediations or allergic.
