Trimethoprim is an antibiotic treatment for cystitis (inflamation of the bladder) that targets the bacteria responsible for the underlying infection. Successful treatment will alleviate the uncomfotable symptoms of the condition, such as a burning sensation during urination and the frequent urge to urinate.

How to buy Trimethoprim online?

At OnlineClinic, you can order Trimethoprim 100mg or 200mg pills depending on your condition combined with the doctor's recommendation based on your symptoms. Trimethoprim 100mg is taken once daily as a suppressive and is ideal for women who experience continual issues with cystitis. The 200mg pills are taken twice daily on a temporary basis just to cure recurrent yet infrequent episodes.

It's important to always complete your course of antibiotics to ensure the infection has cleared. Starting your medication quickly can stop symptoms from worsening, with many finding significant relief within just three days of beginning the course, so we offer free next day delivery with any dosage option.

To buy any medication that has gone through medical trials in the UK, you must have a prescription certified by a UK doctor to prove it is suitable and safe for you to use. OnlineClinic provides this in the form of a free online consultation based on secure medical questions that are reviewed by one of our team of doctors. When it is clear that the infection is cystitis, you want to get effective treatment quickly, so if you complete your order before 4.30pm you will get Trimethoprim delivered the very next day. All packages are discreet meaning you can get your treatment delivered wherever you need with complete confidentiality.

What is Trimethoprim?

Trimethoprim is a course of antibiotic tablets designed to alleviate the symptoms of cystitis to eventually clear the infection completely. Many people find symptoms significantly lessening within three days and clearing completely by the end of the course. Trimethoprim can be used for many bacterial infections but it's most popular use is for UTIs, in particular cystitis.

Short facts about Trimethoprim
How to take

One Trimethoprim tablet should be taken a day, ideally in the evening, with or without food. This is the standard dosage for UTIs, it may vary for other conditions, or severity.

How it works

Trimethoprim works by significantly reducing the production of folic acid so the bacteria causing the symptoms of cystitis can't spread. This allows your immune system to combat the infection.


Trimethoprim is proven to relieve symptoms within days. Many women find the infection clearing entirely within one week.


Available in both 100mg and 200mg pills. 100mg is recommended as a preventative treatment for daily use, whilst 200mg is a 7-day course.

Side effects

Side effects of Trimethoprim are usually temporary and very manageable. These only occur for the small percentage of women and can include nausea or vomiting and headaches.

How does Trimethoprim work?

Being an antibiotic, Trimethoprim can treat and cure bacterial infections such as cystitis. It works by hindering the production of folic acid (folate) so the bacteria cannot replicate its DNA and multiply. By stopping this progress, Trimethoprim halts the spread of infection, allowing your immune system to take over, killing the bacteria.

How to take Trimethoprim?

Trimethoprim is simple to take, although it does vary depending on the dosage you have been advised, which will be detailed to you by a medical professional. This is based on the severity of the symptoms.

  • All tablets to be taken with water, with or without food
  • For UTIs, the standard dose is usually once a day in the evening

The 100mg dosage is taken on a continual basis for women who wish to suppress cystitis as they experience every frequent bouts of the condition. The 200mg dosage is taken to cure recurrent episodes.

If you forget a pill, take it as soon as you remember unless it is near to your next dose. If this is the case, miss completely and continue to finish the dosage. Never take a double dose to make up for a missed pill.


Trimethoprim comes in 100mg and 200mg dosages. 100mg is the recommended dose, especially for UTIs. In some circumstances, you may be offered 200mg, which is taken in a different way to above. When buying online, your doctor at OnlineClinic will advise you on how to take, just the same as a face-to-face appointment.

Side effects and precautions

Side effects of any medication are experienced by the minority and as Trimethoprim is taken as a set course of antibiotics and not a continual treatment, if you so experience side effects, these are usually temporary and disappear once you've finished the medication. Side effects of Trimethoprim are also often very mild and far more manageable than the symptoms of cystitis as well. Some side effects include nausea or vomiting, headache, rash and itching. There are more severe side effect symptoms to also make note of in the patient leaflet at the right of this page.

Precautions to be aware of whilst taking Trimethoprim include:

  • If you have a folate deficiency
  • If you have an impaired or hepatic function
  • If you have liver or kidney disease
  • If you are diabetic
  • If you have a blood disorder
  • If you have a mineral imbalance
  • You should not use Trimethoprim if you are pregnant
  • Consult your doctor before taking when breastfeeding
  • Stop taking the medication if you have symptoms of an allergic reaction

Before taking any prescription medication, you must read the leaflet fully and complete the consultation including your medical history and current medication you are taking.

Note: Decisions about treatment are for both the prescriber and the person to jointly consider during the consultation. However, the final decision will always be the prescriber’s.
