Comments from related studies:
From this study (4 months ago):
Approximately 3 hours after taking generic Bactrim DS, my right wrist became swollen and red almost half way up my right arm. Was very hot to touch, then became very itchy and developed rash. 2 days later woke up with bruised left eyelid from the corner to almost halfway across eyelid. 3 days later after discontinued Bactrim DS, a large hive in the middle of my neck. Now on prednisone and do not plan on ever taking Bactrim again. Could Bactrim cause all of these symptoms? I did not change anything else. Now taking Prednisone.
