I am 27 and have been on Bactrim for about 7 weeks due to a Staph Infection after a Felon in my finger. I have lost 25lbs in this time and it is starting to worry me. I haven't weighed 175lb since the 7th grade. Anyone have any insight or experiences like this on Bactrim?
I am suffering from short term memory loss after taking the antibiotic Bactrim. When I tell my doctor about the systems they tell me I do not know what I am talking about. As anyone had the same happen?

I took Bactrim for less than a week back in mid November 2016. Its now about 3 months later. Experienced a whole host of sympoms not unlike MS. Brain MRI came back clear as did blood work and test for Lyme. The parastesias, loss of sensation throughout my whole body, depression and constipation ...
I just started treatment for MGN (Kidney disease) taking Cyclosporine and Prednisone. I am having low back pain and was wondering if this pain will go away once my body gets adjusted to meds. Thank you to everyone that responds.
I've been on Victoza for about a week. Now I'm having lower back pain. At first I thought it was muscular, maybe somehow tweaked my back, but this feels different. Intense. I'm stopping it as of today and see if I get better. As of now nothing is helping. :(
I've definitely had back pain and anxiety since I've been taking Qvar. I've had an MRI on my back, injections, went to a rheumatologist and physical therapy, I've also had my hips X-rayed nothing helped until I quit taking Qvar.
