E.choli skin rash. I've been on Bactrim for 12 out of 14 days. Rash was starting to get better but now is getting worse. Only side effects have been gas and some constipation.

I was started on this antibiotic to treat Impetigo. I'm currently half way through the treatment, and the only side effect I'm experiencing is appetite loss which isn't much to complain about. So far it seems to be helping clear up the affected area and decrease swelling. On the upside, it has also cleared up most of my acne on my face and including my back. Overall I'm satisfied with my doctors c ...

I have used Bactrim in the past with no side effects, taking it at bedtime, for adult acne. This time however, I took it for 3 nights and had insomnia until about 3 am. Insomnia is a rare side effect for this rx. I might be able to tolerate it if I took it in the morning instead, but haven't tried yet.

I have been on a 10 day course of Bactrim DS for an infected knee cyst. I experienced mild nausea and headache if I took the meds on an empty stomach but otherwise temperature regulation (chills/sweating) was the only side effect I experienced.I did take Align probiotics once a day to combat those "other" side effects.

I took this medication for a large abscess on my arm. I took this medication with a B vitamin complex, which I read can drastically reduce the side effects (a B9 vitamin supplement is what you need, folic acid). . I have been told when taking antibiotics, it's good to help replenish the natural bacteria in the gut with a probiotic, so I'm going to be taking a probiotic along with B9 at lunchtim ...

This drug is very dangerous. I had a relatively minor corrective operation on a toe and was given this presumably as a prophylactic to prevent post-op infection. 1st dose, 1 hour after food, within 30 minutes starting itching all over, hives, rapid heartbeat, tried to get up and passed out momentarily. Symptoms subsided within 30 minutes. There are too many other antibiotics out there to risk this ...

just started this for an abcess. I have read some reviews and they are scary. Z-pak worked for 3 days then I switched to this. Used Clindamycin for the same tooth 5 weeks ago from the ER and that was super. Hope this works ok. Took Amoxicillin before that for a root canal and that worked for 3 days. Z-pak at that time worked well. I guess its how bad the infection is. Tooth getting pulled next wee ...

Keflex is the ONLY medication, so far that I have ever had a reaction to-- and it was severe and pretty immediate. I broke out in a SEVERE and BURNING (I mean ON FIRE) rash on my entire body-- so bad I could barely wear clothes-- especially underwear-- because the rash was especially bad in that area.

I have an infection under my thumb nail (discolored, sore) which has lasted for 3 -4 weeks. This antibiotic doesn't seem to be working.
