How does Trimethoprim work?

When bacterial infections like cystitis spread, the individual cells need to produce DNA. To do this, these cells require a steady supply of folic acid. The cells produce the folic acid themselves, which is then used for the creation of new bacterial DNA. By doing this, the cystitis infection is able to spread faster than the body’s immune system is able to deal with it.

Trimethoprim is an antibiotic that works to prevent the infection from spreading. It does this by stopping the bacterial cells that cause cystitis from synthesising the folic acid that they need to be able to multiply. By acting in this way, this medication stops the spread of infection and renders the remaining cells extremely vulnerable to the immune system. This gives the body time to kill the remaining bacterial cells.

What are the benefits?

Trimethoprim is an extremely effective treatment for cystitis. This condition can cause a great deal of discomfort, with symptoms including pain when urinating and an uncomfortable burning sensation. As the bacteria can multiply so quickly, it can take a while for the body to naturally deal with the infection. This medication will help prevent the bacterial cells from multiplying and thus stop the infection from spreading. This means that Trimethoprim will significantly shorten the life span of the infection and provide quick and fast relief from the symptoms of cystitis.

Trimethoprim can also be used as a long-term preventative treatment for women who suffer from cystitis on a regular basis. For people who experience this as a recurring condition, this medication can be used to reduce the possibility of an infection developing and shorten the time taken for any potential infection to clear. This means that Trimethoprim is an effective treatment for cystitis in both the short and long term.

Who can buy Trimethoprim online?

You can buy Trimethoprim online at 121doc if you are a woman over the age of 18 who is experiencing the symptoms of cystitis.

When you order this treatment, you will be required to complete an online medical consultation. It is important that you answer these questions fully and that you include any medical conditions that you are currently suffering from.

How do you use this treatment?

Trimethoprim comes in a 100mg and 200mg dosage, both of which are available at 121doc. The dosage needed will largely depend on the severity of your infection and whether you are using the medication as a long-term preventative treatment. As cystitis can be a recurring condition, Trimethoprim can be used to help reduce the risk of any potential infections developing.

The 200mg dosage of Trimethoprim is usually recommended in cases where the treatment is required for an existing infection. In these cases, one 200mg tablet should be taken twice a day for 14 days. You should take each tablet with a glass of water and you can take it with or without food. If you are using Trimethoprim as a preventative treatment against cystitis, the 100mg dosage will normally be prescribed. You should follow the instructions of your doctor in regards to how long the treatment should be continued for.

It is important that you take this medication as per the instructions. You should complete the course of antibiotics you have been prescribed, unless specifically told to do otherwise by your doctor. This means completing the prescribed course even if the cystitis symptoms that you were experiencing have cleared. You will be sent the patient leaflet along with your medication. This document will have full instructions on how and when to use this treatment. You are required to read this patient leaflet before starting your course of Trimethoprim.

Are there any side effects?

Trimethoprim is a widely used and well-tolerated medication and so the potential risk of side effects occurring is very small. If you do experience any, they can include vomiting, headaches and nausea. These side effects normally pass very quickly. Please contact your doctor if you experience any persistent side effects that cause you discomfort.
