Are There Any Side Effects If I Drink Milk Or Eat Dairy Products While Taking Bactrim?


Official Answer Medically reviewed by Last updated on Nov 11, 2020.

There are NO interactions when taking Bactrim with milk or dairy products. It can be taken with or without food and milk, including dairy products.

Bactrim is an antibiotic medicine that contains two antibiotics, sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim. It used to treat bacterial infections like bronchitis, traveler's diarrhea, shigellosis, and some types of pneumonia.

Nausea and diarrhea can be a side effect of Bactrim. If these occur it may help to take the antibiotic with food or milk.

Milk and dairy may cause diarrhea while on any antibiotic. If so, take Acidophilus capsules, you may purchase them at any pharmacy or supermarket. Acidophilus is considered a probiotic and will restore good bacteria in the intestines.
Best wishes to you.
