 1  UTI I had no side effects but I also made sure to take it with a full meal. This is the second time I have been prescribed this medication for a UTI and it hasn't worked so I have had to go back and change to Cephalexin which always works instantly. Trimethoprim stops the spread of bacteria where as Cephalexin kills the bacteria which is probably why it is more effective for me. F 28 7 days

 1   I took the first tablet and didn't notice anything adverse then I took the second tablet. Twenty minutes later my eyelids started to puff up, then a blistering stinging rash started to develop on my legs and arms and was shortly followed by a swollen tongue and blistering on my lips. I think my body recognised this as the toxic poison that it actually is. I realised this is not a side effect. It was the effect of digesting toxic chemicals, namely trimethoprim.

I'm now trying natural remedies as they don't act like toxins in the body, This does require self discipline and time as natural healing takes a bit longer. F 42 7 days

 3  Urinary tract infection No side effects The main problem that I have had with this medicine is that it only has had a very weak effect against the infection.

TRIMETHOPRIM  (TRIMETHOPRIM):  Trimethoprim is an antibiotic used to treat bacterial infections. It works by stopping the growth of bacteria. This antibiotic treats only bacterial infections. It will not work for viral infections (such as common cold, flu). Using any antibiotic when it is not needed can cause it to not work for future infections.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
