Trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole continues to be a useful antibiotic for common outpatient problems such as urinary tract infections, prostatitis, acute exacerbations of chronic bronchitis, and acute otitis media as well as for serious infections of the hospitalized patient including Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia, acute pyelonephritis, and some forms of gram negative meningitis. The other sulfonamides have a limited role.
