There are non-standardizeda abbreviations for it as "sulfadimidine" (abbreviated SDI and more commonly but less reliablybSDD) and as "sulfamethazine" (abbreviated SMT and more commonly but less reliablycSMZ). Other names include sulfadimerazine, sulfadimezine, and sulphadimethylpyrimidine.
^a Abbreviations are not found in the databases (such as ChemDB, ChemIDplus, PubChem), but often seen in the published literature.
^b "SDD" is not found in databases, but often seen in the published literature; it could however be confused with Tiferron/Sodium catechol sulfate (1,2-Dihydroxybenzene-3,5-disulfonic acid disodium Salt), uncommon but found officially abbreviated SDD in the ChemIDplus database.
^c "SMZ" is not found in databases, but often seen in the published literature; it could however be confused with sulfamethoxazole, also seen abbreviated SMZ.
