Cotrim Pharmacology

Sulfamethoxazole is a sulfonamide drug that inhibits bacterial synthesis of dihydrofolic acid by competing with para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA). Sulfamethoxazole is normally given in combination with Trimethoprim (a dihydrofolate reductase inhibitor). Studies have shown that bacterial resistance develops more slowly with the combination of the two drugs than with either Trimethoprim or Sulfamethoxazole alone.
