Questions to the study
Could this cause a decrease of GFR and elevated creatinine? Hemolysis index was also elevated. I was only on Bactrim 2 days and used to be able to tolerate it. This time I was in the ER because of shakiness, dizziness, poor cognition. They found my GFR was 48 - one month ago it was normal. ...

After tacking Bactria for 29 days I ended up in the hospital with difficulty breathing And almost unable to walk. Neck, hands and feet swallen. Then my hands & feet shed a great deal of skin. Today after ten years I am in able to smell gasoline if you put it under my nose. A very sad outcome.
That same bad lady bought me a big bottle of purple drank - I bought it hoping to have death, or at least totally trip, but all it did was make my cold go totally away. I feel great now and I'm super pissed about it.
