Please note that the first line treatment for cystitis that is caused by a bacterial UTI is Nitrofurantoin, as there is quite a high bacterial resistance to Trimethoprim. Therefore it is wise to only use Trimethoprim to treat a UTI after a urine test has confirmed that the bacterial strain causing the infection is sensitive to Trimethoprim. Please note that this treatment is currently only offered for female patients. If you are male and are experiencing symptoms of a urinary tract infection, you should visit your GP or a sexual health clinic as this could be a sign of another infection or a more serious underlying problem.

Trimethoprim is an antibiotic used to treat urinary tract infections (UTIs) such as cystitis. It also helps to reduce uncomfortable symptoms quickly. It is sold under several brand names, including Monotrim, Minotrim and Trimogal.
Whilst Trimethoprim is occasionally prescribed to treat other kinds of bacterial infections such as acne or chest infections, it is sold at euroClinix only for the treatment of UTIs.
You can buy the 200mg dose online at euroClinix. All you have to do is fill out a short and discreet consultation form and one of our registered doctors.
Please note: Trimethoprim is not the first-line treatment for cystitis. It can only be prescribed if a urine test has shown you have a UTI that is sensitive to Trimethoprim. Consult your GP if you are unsure.
Trimethoprim kills the bacteria that cause infections by preventing them from making certain enzymes. This stops the bacteria from spreading and kills the infection.
Trimethoprim was designed to tackle specific types of bacteria such as E.coli. These bacteria tend to be more difficult to kill and are more likely to become resistant to treatment. For that reason, you must take Trimethoprim exactly as prescribed.
For most women, Trimethoprim should clear the infection in 3 days. However, some women may need longer. If your infection has not cleared after the treatment course, speak to your doctor.
For men, the infection should clear in 7 days.

To treat an acute UTI, women should take 200mg twice daily for 3 days. Men should take it twice daily for 7 days. Children will require a lower dose of 100mg.

You must take antibiotics exactly as instructed. Even if your symptoms improve quickly, you should always finish the entire course of antibiotics. It could cause your infection to return or become harder to treat.
If you miss a dose, take your missed dose when you remember and then your next dose at your usual time. If you miss a dose, and it’s nearly time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue from your next scheduled dose.
