From this study (5 months ago):
Started as impetigo, transgressed into cellulitis. Cellulitis seems to pretty much have disappeared but impetigo spreading at rapid rate throughout facial area including eye region
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?
From this study (3 years ago):
Bactrim DS, 2 tabs twice daily prescribed for an eye stye. After 2nd dose, experienced nausea, "jitters" which did not improve with food. Within two hours, vomiting, hand shaking, leg tremors, heart palpitations, rapid shallow breathing, extreme dry mouth. Treated in ER with IV Benedryl, Zofran and Ativan with resolution of symptoms, except a large purple bruise under left eye.
