About Trimethoprim

Ingredients

Trimethoprim 200mg tablets contain 200mg of the active ingredient Trimethoprim. Other ingredients are colloidal silicon dioxide, lactose, macrogol, magnesium stearate, providence, sodium starch glycollate, stearic acid and E460. If you are allergic to any of these ingredients, you should not take Trimethoprim.

Dosage

A standard Trimethoprim tablet contains 200mg Trimethoprim. You will need to take one pill twice a day for three consecutive days. If you miss a pill just, carry on with the normal dose the next day. Do not take extra pills to make up for the missed dose. Trimethoprim should be swallowed whole and taken with a glass of water. Do not stop taking Trimethoprim just because the symptoms disappear. Always complete your course of antibiotics to prevent the infection recurring and to prevent the bacteria from developing a resistance. If you accidentally take more Trimethoprim than you should, you must consult your doctor immediately.
