Pharmacy Phriday #7: Bactrim Adverse Events
Contributor: Cheyenne Bean, PharmD Educational Pearls: * Bactrim (TMP-SMX) is a sulfa antibiotic used for a number of infections but can have untoward effects. * Hypoglycemia can be induced by the sulfa component of Bactrim, which binds receptors in the pancreas causing insulin to be secreted, dropping blood sugar levels. * * Oral diabetic medications, specifically sulfonylureas, when taken with Bactrim most often lead to these hypoglycemic episodes. * Hyperkalemia can be induced by Trimethoprim by blocking potassium excretion in the kidney, so Bactrim in combination with ACE inhibitors/ARBs/spironolactone can induce high potassium. * When prescribing Bactrim, remember to check home medications and if a patient is taking an above medication, check a baseline BGL and potassium.
