I am going to start a round of Bactrim in the morning for a UTI. I also take a lot of other prescription medicines. I guess my main concern is whether I can take Bactrim with my other medicines. I take Dexilant and I know that with some antibiotics the body does not absorb them as well when taken too close to antacids. Would appreciate any help you can give me.

Hello, and I am pleased to help, use of my answers are for educational purposes only.
With the Bactrim this will work as it is essentially not affected by the Dexilent, so should work very well for your UTI, and even with antacids.
