Septra or Sulfatrim

My two year old daughter was prescribed Seprta, generic is Sulfatrim, for a uninary tract infection. It seems like every time I give it to her, she gets really hyper about twenty minutes later. Has anyone's children been prescribed this antibiotic, and has it had this effect??? I'm trying to figure out if this is really a side effect of the medicine, or just a coincidence.

  • Found this on so it could be a common side effect even though the answer is vague the question matches yours.

    Question: With regards to the prescribed dosage for a UTI female 4 years of age who seemed to become hyperactive after administration of medication. Is this due to medication or flavors or dyes used to manufacture medication, and is there any problem or significance?

    Answer: Sulfatrim is made by Barre-National Inc. and NMC Laboratories-- both subsidiaries of A.L. Pharma, Inc. The fillers etc. are not listed in the PDR. However, you can reach the company at 7205 Windsor Blvd. Baltimore, MD 21244.

  • Thanks! I just called Walgreens, and they said that she's probably allergic to it.... I disagree... I'll call her doctor Monday and see what they say.
