    Does Sulfameth/Trimethoprim contain gluten?
    Any wheat, rye or barley that might be used as a filler would contain gluten. Even a very small amount would affect people with Celiac Disease.

    It took me about a solid week for it the antibiotic to completely get out of my system and for all the side effects to go away. Are you taking a steroid? Taking a steroid to combat the allergic reaction is what really helped me get better.

    There are many natural products for UTI. Unfortunately, drs. push drugs that cause side effects . . .even to children.
