Sulfatrim (SMZ TMP) Pediatric Suspension is a combination of antibiotics that work in conjunction with each other. It is prescribed for the treatment of urinary tract, skin, respiratory, or digestive tract infections. SMZ TMP can also be used for ear infections, kennel cough, coccidiosis, and pneumonia.
This suspension contains two antibiotics, Sulfamethoxazole and Trimethoprim, that inhibit the growth of bacteria by blocking the production of folic acid, which is essential in making the bacteria’s DNA. By combining two antibiotics, you increase the chance of killing the bacteria without promoting any resistance by the bacteria.
