I have this medicine for over a year, left overs from my last bladder infection. Now I have a bladder infection again and it's very painful and keeps me running to the bathroom. I took my first doses about three hours ago and I'm supposed to take 1 twice a day. Can I take a second doses already now or do I really have to wait another 9 hours? Not sure, if my doctor told me, that I can take two in the beginning and then reduce to one doses every 12 hours. I am really in pain and I'm peeing blood :(
I have Sulfameth/TMP DS TAB (a big white powdery tablette with IP 272 on it). Can I start with two?

Well the battery of my laptop runs on low, so I assume I won't get an answer on time. Pain are still there and I'm for over an hour now in the bathroom ... guess I'll spend the rest of the night here :(
The pills should have a date on them. They are probally fine, but antibiotics should always completed. Maybe there will be enough to help you. Drink plenty of water to flush out the bacteria. also, if you take cranberry pills everyday it helps keep bacteria from sticking to the walls of the bladder. Also women should wipe from front to back and always urinate after sex.
