Question

Hi doctor is it safe to take purbac twice a day for my acne face while taking hiv treatment?

Answer

Hello and thanks for posting.

Purbac (trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole; also known as Co-Trimoxazole, Bactrim, Septra) is a widely used antibiotic. It's commonly used among people living with HIV to prevent Pneuocystis pneumonia or Toxoplasmosis.

While it would be entirely helpful and relevant to know what HIV treatments you'r taking, A quick search of any online drug-drug interaction calculator (such as
hiv-druginteractions.org would quickly tell you that there shouldn't be significant negative interactions between your Purbac and HIV medications.

Be well in the New Year, BY
