Septra is an antibiotic combination containing sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim. It is typically used to treat infections including ear infections, urinary tract infections, bronchitis, and traveler's diarrhea.
It could be prescribed to treat bacterial sinusitis in a patient allergic to penicillin. Septra is a prescription medicine and should only be taken on a doctors recommendation. As tempting as it is self diagnosis is unwise!
