Question

Good day doctor. I am emailing from South Africa. I have been prescribed purbac antibiotics for a month due to a head infection (folluculitis). I usually eat just one mean a day in the evening... But I was told to take 2 tabs in the morning and 2 in the evening after meals. Is it ok to take these tabs in the morning on an empty stomach?

Answer

Hello and thanks for posting from South Africa.

Purbac (trimethoprim/sulfa also known as Bactrim or Septrim) can be taken with, or without food.

Be well, BY
