What are the side effects of Tucoprim Powder?

Horses treated intravenously with trimethoprim/sulfadiazine 48% injection have tolerated up to five times the recommended daily dose for seven days or on the recommended daily dose for 21 consecutive days without clinical effects or histopathological changes. Lengthening of clotting time was seen in some of the horses on high or prolonged dosing in one of two trials. The effect, which may have been related to a resolving infection, was not seen in a second similar trial. Slight to moderate reductions in hematopoietic activity following high, prolonged dosage in several species have been recorded. This is usually reversible by folinic acid (leucovorin) administration or by stopping the drug. During long-term treatment of horses, periodic platelet counts and white and red blood cell counts are advisable. In rare instances, horses have developed diarrhea during trimethoprim/sulfadiazine treatment. If fecal consistency changes during trimethoprim/sulfadiazine therapy, discontinue treatment immediately and institute appropriate symptomatic measures.
