💊 Profile

Sulfanilamide is a short-acting sulfonamide with properties similar to those of sulfamethoxazole. Its antibacterial activity is less than that of sulfamethoxazole. It has been used topically, including vaginally, for the treatment of susceptible infections, often with other drugs. The sodium, sodium mesilate, and camsilate salts have also been used.
