Yes, sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim can cause yeast infections (I'm assuming you mean vaginal), when taken for a urinary tract infection.

I think certain antibiotics can and do cause yeast, I think this is especially noted for Diabetics and happens in areas where there is heat (parts of the body) like the groin and other areas, I think also I was told that if an antibiotic is given over an extended period of time individuals can develop yeast infections, some antibiotics are more pron I think than others, there are over the counter medications that can be used to treat such and also if this is a problem talking with the prescribing doctor is a good idea. I have to be on recurrent antibiotics due to a blood problem that does not allow my body to ward off infections so yeast is problematic I have had to use both over the counter and then there are prescription antifungal medications to treat these, my Mom was especially susepticable to Urinary tract infections and this was one of the drugs that was commonly used she as I recall did not develop lots of problems with yeast but every body is different.

A good thing to remember when taking any antibiotic is take acidophillus. It will prevent a yeast infection from occuring.
