Taking ibuprofen after sulfamethoxazole/trimethoprim

I took sulfamethoxazole trimethoprim 800/160 mg which expired 2 years ago; but i only took half and I have had a headache all day. Can I now take ibuprofen for the headache? My last dose was 4 and a half hours ago. ## Hello, Renee! How are you feeling? I didn't find any problems or interactions listed, but it is always best to double check to be sure. Since the Sulfamethoxazole/Trimethoprim is an antibiotic, why did you only take half of it? Given that it was also expired, that would likely not be an appropriate dose to treat an infection. The FDA also lists headaches as being one of its possible side effects, along with nausea, dizziness, diarrhea, and non-allergic skin rash. ## How long does it take to start feeling better after taking smz tmp ds 800-160.

I am taking the antibiotic suflameth/trimethoprim. Can a have a couple glasses of wine with dinner? ## It is generally not advised, because it can cause a worsening of the side effects, so you could find yourself dealing with severe nausea, diarrhea, dizziness and etc. It's basically taking one drink and making seem as if you'd drunk two instead and so on and since the effects of the antibiotic will still be in your system, some issues may linger for a day, or two afterwards.

Polymyxin B Sulfate and Trimethoprim Ophthalmic solution

It is an eye drop and was wondering what it is used to treat since it was prescribed for an ear infection. ## I wondered if you could tell me what the recommended dosage is for this drug.
