Proloprim review by 33 year old female patient

Overall rating:  
Effectiveness:   Highly Effective
Side effects:   Mild Side Effects
Treatment Info
Condition / reason:   acne
Dosage & duration:   100mg taken 2x daily initially, 1x daily maintenance for the period of over 4 years
Other conditions:   none
Other drugs taken:   none
Reported Results
Benefits:   Dermatologist suggested trial of trimethoprim 2x per daily, once morning and once in the evening. Diminished acne resulted within the first month and more significantly for the following months. After 1 year, patient reduced to taking pill once per day.
Side effects:   Side effects were mild, but a similar derivative had significant side effects so this patient recommends trying another sulfur-based drug if this once poses problems. Side effects with trimethoprim included very mild sun sensitivity-simply use a sunscreen; occasional yeast infections once or twice per year; upset stomach if taken without food.
Comments:   Patient suffered acne for over 15 years and had been treated with various oral and topical medications. Oral medications included most typical antibiotics and Accutane. Results were less than ideal. D
