Its in alot of anti-biotics and some of the capsules for meds.

Sulfa or sulfonamides, a group of drugs that includes those with and without antibiotic characteristics. Antibiotic sulfonamides were the first antibiotics used to treat infections, although today are used much less frequently given their common side effects. Common sulfa antibiotics include SeptraŽ, BactrimŽ and PediazoleŽ.
