  • From this study (3 weeks ago):

  • Good Day,

    Is there a possibility to have shortness of breath while taking these 2 medicines. My doctor said that there are no interactions but I woke up gasping for air on 2 occasions. I'm only taking the Bactrim for 3 days but I'm scared about the breathing issue. Is this common? Please advise.

    Thanks,

  • From this study (3 months ago):

  • My reaction to bactrim starts within the first 15 minutes of ingesting the drug. I started getting muscle aches and stiffness mostly of my neck. My eyes red a terrible red color. My vision became blurry. I had severe sciatic pain mostly in the right lower extremity started from my lower back. I couldn't stand for more then a minute. I got relief from laying on my back and keeping my legs raised. It took weeks for the effects to wear off.
