Recently my face has been breaking out really bad in acne and rashes. My dermatologist perscribed an antibiotic- Sulfameth/Trimethoprim which is the generic form of Bactrim. I can't find this anywhere on the internet if this is Gluten Free or not. My pharmacist was no help to me. Can anyone help???

Hi and welcome! :D

You will need to ask the pharmacist the name of the manufacturer--he/she will know this.

Then, look the company up on the internet, call them directly and ask. You can always ask here, too--but you need to include the manufacturer, as there could be several different companies making the generic. They would all have a slightly different "recipe" regarding the inactive ingredients.

you need to find out the brand (apo, novo etc) it should say on the bottle. you might also have luck looking up sulfatrim DS which is the other name the med is known by.
