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.

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

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 clinical 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 bottom 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.
