Use during pregnancy, lactation or lay:
Not applicable.

Interaction with other medicinal products and other forms of interaction:
No known interactions.

Amounts to be administered and administration route:
Oral: One tablet per 40 kg bodyweight daily.  This gives 30 mg of combined active ingredients per kg bodyweight.

Treatment should be repeated daily until two days after the symptoms have resolved, but in cases of salmonellosis and bacterial pneumonia treatment should be continued for 5 consecutive days.  Treatment must not be continued for more than 5 days.

The product may be administered whole, by hand or balling gun, or dispersed in water.  Dosage by dispersion in water:  Disperse each bolus by shaking in about 300 ml of water in dosing bottle.  This may be facilitated by crushing the bolus before placing it in the bottle.  After dosing by this method any unused material should be discarded.

To ensure the correct dosage, bodyweight should be determined as accurately as possible to avoid underdosing.

Not applicable.

Withdrawal period:
Meat: 15 days.

Pharmacotherapeutic group:  Antibacterials for systemic use.
ATC Vet Code:  QJ01EW10

Pharmacodynamic properties:
Sulphadiazine (SDZ) inhibits the incorporation of para-aminobenzoic acid into folic acid and trimethoprim (TMP) inhibits the enzyme dihydrofolate reductase (DHFR) which converts dihydrofolic acid into tetrahydrofolic acid.  TMP and SDZ act together synergistically with a double-blockage mode of action.  The combination is bactericidal inhibiting sequential steps in the synthesis of purines which are required for DNA synthesis.  TMP-SDZ combinations have a broad bactericidal action against many gram-positive and gram-negative aerobic bacteria, and a large proportion of anaerobic bacteria.
