3 months After a hysterectomy I have found myself with blood in urine. Doctor prescribed Augmentin then again after 4 months same problem occur. Same antibiotic taken and one dose of Zinat. After several tests infection still persist as urine result found colliforms (+++ )Pls advise is bactric can help?
Bactrim contains two different antibiotics, sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim. Sulfamethoxazole belongs to a group of drugs known as sulfonamides ("sulfa" drugs). Trimethoprim does not belong to a specific class of medications. These two antibiotics work in different but similar ways. Essentially, both sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim work by inhibiting the production of folic acid in bacteria, although they work in different stages of folic acid production. Folic acid is important for making proteins and DNA. Because humans obtain folic acid from the diet (and bacteria cannot), human cells are less affected by Bactrim.
Combining sulfamethoxazole with trimethoprim increases the effectiveness and decreases the chance of antibiotic resistance (when bacteria develop the ability to resist antibiotics).
It is recommended before you change meds to consult your doc/pharmacist who prescribed Augmentin, please well, take care & above all safe!
