💊 Profile

Sulfaguanidine is a sulfonamide with properties similar to those of sulfamethoxazole. It is absorbed to a limited extent from the gastrointestinal tract and may therefore be more likely to cause systemic effects than less well absorbed drugs such as phthalylsulfathiazole and succinylsulfathiazole. It is used, usually with other drugs, in the treatment of gastrointestinal infections, and has also been applied locally to the skin and throat.
