... taking it?

Bactrim is an antibiotic used to treat bacterial infections including ear infections, urinary tract infections, bronchitis, traveler's diarrhea, and Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia.
The active ingredients in Bactrim are sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim.
The usual adult dose for a urinary tract infection (bladder infection) is 1 Bactrim DS (double strength) tablet twice daily for 10 to 14 days.
Whilst alcohol will not interfere with the Bactrim DS it is not a good idea to drink alcohol while you have a bladder infection.
