Bactrim contains sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim.Both antibiotics treat different types of bacterial infections.Bactrim is used to treat infections such as urinary tract infection. Amoxycillin is generally prescribed for the chest infections.

You can take bactrim & amoxicillin together.There is no drug interaction between them.This will not harm you.Its safe to take them together.

Hope this helped.
