Hello from JustAnswer.

Bactrim can be taken with or without food. It is recommended that someone drink a full glass of water or two with each dose, as well as plenty of fluids during the course of the day, but it can be taken with or without food.

It is more important that the Bactrim be taken about 12 hours apart, and it is not necessary to schedule meals to accommodate that schedule.

If I can provide any additional information, please let me know.
