I missed three doses of generic bactrim due to a small stomach bug i could not get them down and didnt risk trying
Now im sure i can get them down but is it too late to restart taking it
Welcome and thanks for your question , if you are feeling better , what you should do is continue taking the medications regularly . When you finish the last dose ,take the next two pills the next day once every 12 hours and the last pill the day after that .
You can do this if you stop taking the medication only for 1-2 days .
If you skipped doses for 3 days or more , You need to contact your doctor again, he will determine if it is necessary for you to take the whole treatment again.
