It is widely used for urinary tract infections. I wouldn't consider it a dangerous drug.

It is NOT sulpher. Cotrim is a sulfonomide otherwise called a sulfa/sulpha drug. It is one of the earliest antibiotics used. It is relatively safe for those not allergic. It is not chemically related to sulpher, sulfer, sulfates or sulfites. It is important to make a distinction between sulfa drugs and other sulfur-containing drugs and additives, such as sulfates and sulfites, which are chemically unrelated to the sulfonamide group, and do not cause the same hypersensitivity reactions seen in the sulfonamides.
