  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • While taking Septra Ds had a loss of appetite, lost 12 pounds in one week. No desire to eat, could only tolerate small amounts of food. Took meds for 10-12 days but appetite never returned to normal. Then about two to three weeks later I was hospitalized with a bowel obstruction. The obstruction resolved on it's own with medical help but no surgery. I was released a week ago and continue to have trouble producing a nature BM. Havin read the side effects of the med, I know loss of appetite was to be reported to my MD immediately which I did but I was told not to worry. Now I have abdominal discomfort, feel full after taking a few bites, and am unable to defecate. Could this all stem from the med, Septra Ds?
