Use of Cotrimox for HIV/AIDS in developing countries
Jul 4, 2006
Dear Experts, I am doing a research related to promotion of Cotrimox for the treatment of HIV in developing countries where ARV drugs are not available. Could you provide any information regarding the usage of cotrimox, side effects of the drug and up to what extent it can be useful in such treatment in developing nations?
Response from Dr. Young
Cotrimoxazole is one of the trade names for the antibiotic trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole (otherwise known as Bactrim or Septra). Cotrimoxazole is the form of the medication most commonly used in resource-limited countries.
You can find a lot more about the medication on this site by searching on the full name or it's other lingo, "sulfa". BY
