What should I know before taking Zotrim?

Sulfamethoxazole, Trimethoprim, Phenazopyridine, or Zotrim, can help relieve pain from a urinary tract infection before an antibacterial medication is used. Do not use Zotrim more than two days before receiving alternative treatment. Discontinue use of Zotrim as soon as you begin appropriate antibacterial medication. Talk with your doctor if you have renal or hepatic disease, asthma, severe allergies, or glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency. If you suffer from alcoholsim, poor nutrition, take medication for seizures or are at risk for low folate in your blood for any other reason, discuss your condition with your doctor before taking Sulfamethoxazole, Trimethoprim, Phenazopyridine. Women who are breastfeeding, pregnant or planning to become pregnant should not take this medication. Zotrim should not be confused with the weight loss drug Zotrim.
