  • From this study (4 months 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,
