Trimethoprim is an antibiotic that is used to treat a wide variety of bacterial infections. Trimethoprim antibiotic tablets are primarily used to treat urinary tract infections, also known as cystitis or a UTI. Trimethoprim tablets are taken twice a day for three days, they are an alternative antibiotic to MacroBid Nitrofurantoin tablets. If you have specific questions or queries about Trimethoprim tablets use our Ask a Pharmacist service.
At e-Surgery we can only prescribe Trimethoprim tablets for future use and as a preventative measure rather than for acute cases. Because of this we cannot prescribe Trimethoprim tablets if you currently have a UTI, they are intended for future use. This works best for women who suffer with multiple UTI’s a year and would like to be prepared. We can also not prescribe Trimethoprim tablets to men as UTI’s in men require a Doctor’s appointment.
Trimethoprim tablets are used to treat infections of the bladder, kidney and other parts of the urinary tract (UTI). This is also known as Cystitis. Trimethoprim tablets work by targeting the cause of the infection and therefore stopping the unpleasant symptoms of the UTI. Trimethoprim tablets should be taken twice a day for three days to fully clear up a UTI and any symptoms.
UTI’s are more common in women, and can sometimes be caused by sexual activity but this is not always the case. Do not take more Trimethoprim tablets than advised, always consult your doctor or prescriber if you are unsure. You can buy Trimethoprim tablets online or at your local pharmacy. This will require a short 2 minute health questionnaire to verify you are receiving the correct medication. If you buy Trimethoprim tablets online or any other medication make sure to buy from reputable, registered pharmacies.
Before you buy Trimethoprim tablets online you can check using the GPhC website to see if a pharmacy is registered, ensuring that the Trimethoprim tablets you receive are genuine.
A urinary tract infection (UTI) is also known as cystitis which is an inflammation of the bladder. It happens when bacteria enters the bladder through the urethra.
It is common in sexually active women, although men can also get a UTI. UTI’s generally go away on their own after a few days, and are also easily treated with antibiotics such as Trimethoprim tablets. A good way to avoid a UTI is to make sure to urinate after sex, as this can flush out some of unwanted bacteria that can cause a UTI.
It’s important to get rid of a UTI as in rare cases the infection can spread causing more serious infections such as a kidney infection. Symptoms of a kidney infection include pain in your sides, a high temperature, chills/shivering, feeling sick or being sick and diarrhoea. Book a GP appointment immediately if you are having these symptoms or call 111.
UTI (cystitis) can be painful and incredibly uncomfortable. Some of the main symptoms of UTI are:
Contact your doctor or prescriber if you think you might have a UTI. For women who struggle with UTI’s consistently often having a supply of antibiotic medication such as Trimethoprim tablets is a good way to stay on top of repeat infections.
More information about UTI’s are available on the NHS website.
If you buy Trimethoprim tablets they should be taken exactly how your doctor prescribed. If you are not sure, ask your doctor or pharmacist.
Swallow the tablets with a glass of water at the same time each day for the full course.
e-Surgery offers a 3-day course of Trimethoprim, where a Trimethoprim tablet is taken twice daily for 3 days. This quickly and effectively helps kill the bacteria that causes pain and other symptoms associated with cystitis. You should complete your whole treatment course, even if you feel better. Do not stop earlier. Not completing a course of antibiotics can lead to antibiotic resistance, which would mean certain antibiotics will not be effective in the future. Completing each course of treatment can help prevent future reoccurring UTI’s.

Trimethoprim tablets work by reducing the folic acid that the bacteria produces and therefore stopping it from growing. Trimethoprim is incredibly effective at stopping the multiplication of the bacteria that is causing the infection. In some cases infections such as UTIs can progress to more serious issues such as kidney infections as the bacteria can spread. This is why it is important to be aware of this and take antibiotic tablets if necessary.
Trimethoprim tablets are a great defence against UTI’s in women. MacroBid Nitrofurantoin tablets are another alternative that work in a similar way except have a more steady release, though this treatment is more expensive. Alternatives names for Nitrofurantoin are Aratoin, Macrodantin and Furadantin.
