  • Bactrim causes severe side effects (1 response)
    I get bladder infections on a regular basis. I do not have a doctor so I end up in the ER every time. I normally go to the same ER but not all the time. I have been prescribed medications like Cipro and Bactrim. Cipro usually knocks out the infection but I always get another one.
    For the last three years Doctors have been prescribing me Bactrim. In the last two months I had three bladder infections and took Bactrim for ten days seven and three. I didn't realize the medications themselves would harm me as well. Now I have severe abdominal pain every single day. I did some research on Bactrim and discovered it can cause several different kinds of stomach problems. I have been in pain for two months straight non-stop.
    I finally discovered that the Bactrim killed both the good and bad bacteria in my body and now my digestive system is off balance. I went to a natural food store and bought some probiotics. It helped relieve some stomach pain after four days, but if I forget to take it one time it comes back. I think something is wrong with me but not exactly sure what. When I get a doctor next month I will update this article.
    I just want to say that Bactrim has severe side effects, I DO NOT recommend taking this drug. Cipro is better in the long run.
  • Something should be done....
    Medicine had my kness aching badly. Cause my legs to lock up where I couldn't bend then. Had to elevate for 2weeks. Feeling better but they still hurt and knees keep popping. Had to take fluid pills cause they were so swollen.
  • Interaction between bactrim & vit c
    I drank one tablet of bactrim with glass of vit C (1 tablet), after 5 minutes I became red (face & eyes) with high tachycardia and high pressure in the ears.

    After 15 minutes I observed differents red points on the skin (hand, arms & legs).



    I would like to inform you that I took in the past bactrim and vit C but separately, never both in the same moment.

    I was afraid to have an internal emoragy, I provoked the vomiting to eliminate everything in my stomach.

    Affer 10 minutes the situation became normal and pressure returned normal.



    I took 1 tablet of antistaminc for allergy and the red points eliminated.
  • Narcolepsy-cataplexy and epilepsy after taking tamiflu (1 response)
    Sorry for my unperfect English : ) I'm french.

    I suddenly declared an "atypic" Narcolepsy-cataplexy after taking two pills of TAMIFLU in 2007. My husband was ill, and our family doctor recommanded me and my baby to take the same medecine otherwise we should also catch the "bad" flu.

    I took two pills of TAMIFLU and fell down at my office, unanimated but not unconscious, unable to move, prisonner in my own body. Till this day, I couldn't help falling down 10 to 15 Times a day, being sleepy all the day long, being paralysed when I Wake up in the morning. Several nights I also experimented tonic-clonic epilepsy seizures and insomnia. My life would never be the same till then.

    I was misdiagnotised the first time, since I didn't carry the "HLA specific type" confirming a typical narcolepsy. But the cataplexy attacks were so specifically that I obtained to be recieved in a sleep-center to check my sleepness architecture. The results were shortly confirming the diagnosis of Narcolpesy-Cataplexy in its nontypical form, "secondary type" as in rare cases as following a trauma, and also the diagnostics of frontal epilepsy.

    I precise I did NEVER had seizure or epilepsy crises before the day I fell down after taking TAMILFU.

    At the RMI, I was detected an "intrasellar arachnoidocele" which could explain the survenience of my symptoms. It's sudden appearance might have been a side effect of TAMIFLU which is now known to rich (oseltamivir substance)the blood-brain barrier and cause irreversible dammages to brain.

    As a conclusion, TAMIFLU appeared to be responsable of a "medecinal intoxication" causing the narcolepsy-cataplexy I suddenly suffer since then.

    Several Years after, we hear about narcolepsy cases caused by the massive H1N1 vaccinations... But what about me, am I the only one case declared by TAMIFLU and its molecule oseltamivir ?
