    I understand the ds version is double strength but is it also slow release or not. As I understand ds version is taken twice a day where the normal version is suppose to be taken 2 to 3 times a day.

    The normal version is just so much cheaper than ds. It's a lot more economical to take 2 normal tabs twice a day compared to the ds version if it's just a matter of total dose with no slow release effects.

    I have Googled around and can't seem to find an answer. Appreciate any info.

    Cheers! !!

    I found this:

    http://antibiotics.emedtv.com/bactrim/bactrim-vs.-bactrim-ds.html

    Some people may wonder what the difference is between Bactrim DS vs. Bactrim. The "DS" stands for "double strength." Bactrim DS contains exactly twice as much of the active ingredients as regular Bactrim. There are no other important differences between the two products; taking two regular Bactrim tablets is the same as taking one Bactrim DS tablet.
