Purbac d.s and rash
Jun 22, 2008
Response from Dr. Young
Thanks for your post.
Purbac is trimthoprim/sulfamethoxazole (TMP/SMX), known here in the US as Bactrim or Septra. Rash is indeed a not uncommon side effect of TMP/SMX. Rash is also a characteristic side effect of efavirenz (Stocrin, Sustiva).
If you're developing a rash, it's important to bring this to the attention of your healthcare provider.
