Generic Bactrim is a cheaper version of bactrim, a very effective and trusted antibiotic medicine. Generic and brand name Bactrim have identical active ingredients Trimethoprim and Sulfamethoxazole, and it will produce the same therapeutic effect as the brand name drug. Generic medications can usually be purchased for a fraction of the cost of their branded counterparts. Because generic medications are often much cheaper than their branded counterparts, many people choose buying generic medications online, and many insurance companies actually require that they be used. The combination of generic substitutions and reference pricing would give patients an incentive to choose the cheapest product, while helping them avoid unnecessary costs.

Bactrim consists of two medications: sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim. The first inhibits synthesis of dihydrofolic acid while the last blocks next stage of its biochemical cycle: formation of tetrahydrofolic acid which occurs only in microorganisms. Generic Bactrim, a combination of Trimethoprim and sulfamethoxazole antibiotics, is usually given to treat or prevent infections that are proven or strongly suspected to be caused by bacteria. It is a synthetic antibacterial combination of sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim that treats and prevents ear infections, urinary tract infections, bronchitis, traveler's diarrhea, and Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia.
