  • 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.
