  • Bactrim-hypopigmentation, nausea, other side effects
    Took bactrim for 7 days 2x a day, was told to take for 14 days. Had persistent and worsening nausea, vomiting, fatigue, hypopigmentation of my skin when I sat in the sun for over 5 minutes, inability to fall asleep, headache, and neck pain. Ended up with low iron and folic acid levels, which were treated with supplements and discontinuation of the Bactrim resolved symptoms.

  • Prescribed drugs side effect (1 response)
    I have been on these 2 drugs (Gabapentin and Baclofen) prescribed by my gp for osteoarthritis and nerve damage in my full back.Now also suffering from the grief of losing my beloved companion Harvey (dog),I was diagnosed with deep depression. I was given fluoxetine and have been taking this for almost 4 weeks (along with the other 2 meds) and today I have a very sore tongue and it has been white for a number of days,i am going to the pharmacy tomorrow to seek some advice as I am not sure I should be taking all these together? As I am on the highest dose of depression tablets with the fluoxetine I feel it is unsafe to take with the other 2 as the baclofen can also be used to treat certain types of depression. But I can not do without either and as I am allergic to codeine I am pretty much stuck.
  • 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.

  • 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,

  • I have had C-diff since 9/3 2014. I am on my 5th reoccurrence of it, and I took flagyl twice and vancomyacin with the secondary medication. no relief. Ended in the hospital with dehydration, lack of potassium and felt horrible.
    My moods, have been up and down, since I just came down with a bladder infection two weeks before my fecal transplant and it took them a week to give me the antibiotics. They gave me bacteria, and all of the sudden on the 4th day my knees hurt, my upper thighs. I do wonder what is wrong. I have always been a very compliant do not complain patient but gosh, I feel like I am going to die from .
    I do not know how I can continue to work?
