Trimethoprim is an antibiotic that kills the bacterium that is responsible for urinary tract infections (cystitis). Cystitis is a medical term for inflammation of the bladder. There are many different infections and irritations that cause cystitis in the lower urinary system. Trimethoprim can also be used to treat a number of other infections caused by bacteria such as chronic bronchitis.

Trimethoprim is not suitable for pregnant women or children. Women taking the contraceptive pill should also be aware antibiotics can make the pill less effective and should use another form of protection whilst on antibiotics.

How does Trimethoprim work?

Trimethoprim antibiotic tablets specifically targets the bad bacteria in order to tackle an infection. It does so by interfering with the bacteria preventing it from producing foliate, which is what the organism needs to live and grow. Without it bacteria cannot spread and an infection either never occurs, or is reversed as the bacteria is destroyed by the body’s immune system.

How do I take Trimethoprim?

Trimethoprim comes in an oral tablet in a 100mg and 200mg dose. Depending on the condition you are treating and severity you may be required to take the medication 3 times per day for up to 2 weeks to clear the infection. The lower dosage of Trimethoprim can also be taken long term to prevent cystitis returning. Trimethoprim can be taken with or without food.
