Trisul general information

What is Trisul used for?

Trisul tablets 480mg are a combination antibiotic used to treat a variety of infections caused by susceptible bacteria in various parts of the body, when a single antibiotic has not eliminated the infection. These include infections of the urinary tract, such as cystitis, upper and lower respiratory tract, such as bronchits, genital tract infections such as gonorrhoea, and infections of the gastrointestinal system, such as gastroenteritis due to E.coli and shigellosis. It is also used for the treatment and prevention of Pneumocystis, which is a form of pneumonia caused by a type of fungus that lives in the lungs.

How does Trisul work?

Trisul tablets 480mg contain cotrimoxazole, a combination of two antibiotics trimethoprim and sulfamethoxazole that block two consecutive steps in the biosynthetic pathway needed for bacterial DNA and protein synthesis. Sulfamethoxazole in Trisul tablets 480mg competes with para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA) which the bacterial cells use to make an important metabolite dihydrofolic acid. Trimethoprim in Trisul tablets 480mg inhibits a specific bacterial enzyme called dihydrofolate reductase (DHFR) that converts dihydrofolic acid to tetrahydrofolic acid. These combined actions of trimethoprim and sulfamethoxazole block bacterial folate biosynthesis, needed for making nucleic acids and proteins, preventing replication of the bacteria by bacteriostasis, which limits the growth of the bacteria and stops the spread of infection. Trisul tablets 480mg are effective against a wide range of bacteria, including Staphylococcus species, Enterobacter species Escherichia coli Klebsiella pneumoniae and Proteus mirabilis.
