Comments from related studies:
From this study (9 months ago):
symptoms in area 3 started 2weeks post Septra course of 7 days. Seemed like gastroenteritis for 48 hours then diarrhea subsided but other symptoms remain.
From this study (3 years ago):
Headache is as debilitating as the pelvic pain was. Is headache from bactrim or pyridium, one dose of diflucan before i was changed to bactrim or combination?
From this study (4 years ago):
D Ayers on Apr, 16, 2010:
The headache began within hours of taking the Bactrim. Not sure if the interaction of the Pristiq and Bactrim are related but four days were spent in the hospital with no specific diagnosis. General practitioner referred patient to neurologist.
