Bactrim contains sulfa which is also one of the main ingredients used in treating Uc. So I can see how this one antibiotic would be of benefit to Uc as well as the UTI. I, unfortunately, found out the hard way that Bactrim contained sulfa. I had a UTI and my doc prescribed it. I ended up in such severe pain that I had to stop it before the course was up. Later when I told the doc about it, I found out that it contained sulfa - which I am highly allergic to!
