Mucoprim 250 g – discontinued
Treatment of respiratory infections in horses due to organisms susceptible to the combination of sulfadimidine and trimethoprim.
Sulfadimidine and trimethoprim have similar antibacterial spectra, trimethoprim being approximately 20 times more potent then sulfadimidine. The combination provides a synergistic action enhancing the antimicrobial activity (potentiation) of the combination, compared with the antimicrobial activity of either agent alone. The combination of sulfonamide and trimethoprim is bactericidal while either drug alone is bacteriostatic.
