sulfameth/trimethoprim 800 ## I have been on this drug for a week now and I have been experiencing a hard time sleeping and I wake up every hour on the hour and when I first was on it I did not sleep for four days and I never had sleeping problems before. When I do sleep I also get really weird dreams. Has anyone experienced this? ## Yes- I am having problems sleeping and weird dreams also. Ooh-well; it will stop soon. I will complete the medication and hopefully be done with it. ## This medication is a combination of two antibiotics, and yes, they will cause sleep problems for some people, but this will wear off if you are on it for awhile, or it you complete your course of treatment. ## I have been put on Bactrim for my acne treatment.

can you have a beer while taking these tablets ## Hi, Bruce! How are you? It is best to abstain from alcohol, when taking any prescription medication. However, if your doctor says it is safe for you to have a drink or two, on occasion, or if you chose to do so anyway, you should be aware that it can cause worsening of the side effects. Thus, you may experience more nausea, dizziness and drowsiness than usual, this effect will basically make one drink affect as if you'd had two and so on. Learn more Bactrim details here. So please, for your own safety, make sure that you aren't driving or operating any heavy machinery. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

I went to my pulmonary doctor today. I wasn't sure if I had allergies or an upper respiratory infection (not severe). I have asthma, and did not do as well with my breathing tests as I usually do. The Doctor heard a slight wheezing in my chest. He gave me 5 days of Bactrim DS. Is this a normal dose or should he have ordered pills for more days. ## Hello, Linda! How are you? No, it can be used like that, if he thinks an infection might just be starting, or he's trying to prevent one. Its side effects may include nausea, dizziness, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea.

I have interpharm 800-160 antibiotic. Was wondering what that dosage would be for my 6 year old? My 14 year old took I tablet twice daily so was wondering if I could just cut the tablet in half? ## Hello, Denise! How are you? Has your child's doctor prescribed this for them? Antibiotics shouldn't be used, unless a doctor confirms the presence of a bacterial infection, because improper use creates the risk of developing antibiotic resistance. Additionally, when an antibiotic is prescribed you need to be sure that you or your child finishes the entire course of treatment to ensure that the bacteria is completely eradicated. Side effects to this medication may include nausea, dizziness, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. ...

Having taken Bactrim for about 3 weeks for a prostate infection, it now seems that the first urination after taking the pill exaggerates or possibly causes an extra burning sensation. Is this ever reported as a side effect ## Bactrim contains Sulfamethoxazole and Trimethoprim and being that it's a sulfa drug, it's well known to cause odd side effects and weight reactions in many people that take it. As a matter of fact, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone, unless it's their only option for treating their infection. Learn more Bactrim details here. That said, yes there's a chance that the medication could be causing the problem, though there is also still a chance that it is unrelated. However, from personal experience, since I had a bad reaction to this myself last sum... ...

My husband was prescribed this pill for a staph infection. He has dementia and has had total confusion, craziness, sleeplessness and anger since taking this pill (2 pills in am and 2 pills in PM). Could this be a side effect? ## Hi Mimi, According to the MayoClinic... confusion, irritability, and trouble sleeping are all listed as possible side effects of Bactrim. However what's interesting to me is that they are reported under a category called "incidence not known", which makes me wonder if they haven't actually been able to prove that Bactrim is the cause even though patients have experienced such symptoms during their time on the medication. My hunch says that Bactrim is a strong suspect, but I would still encourage you to discuss possible solutions with his doctor i... ...

how many days of bactrim use does it take to cure strep throat ## Did your doctor prescribe it for treating strep?

Can bactrim ds 800 160 tab elevate blood pressure for someone who has hypertension but taking meds for that. ## Hi Paula, Based on my research, there have actually been several reports from other patients stating that Sulfamethoxazole/Trimethoprim was the alleged cause of their hypertension. However it appears the manufacturer has failed to list hypertension in their drug monograph as a potential side effect. If you are experiencing such symptoms, my suggestion would be to keep track of and monitor your blood pressure before and after each dose. This way you can show your doctor the effect it's been having with proof over an extended or short period of time. I hope this helps! ...
