  • From this study (5 years ago):

  • I'm not sure if it's the interaction between the advil or just the bactrim, but the fever and sun sensitivity, along with muscle weakness, chills, and loss of appetite seemed to get much worse when I started taking advil about a week into the 10 day cycle of bacrim ds.
