I want to know do what medication does because I never took it before. I start today. ## Hi Tena, The combination of sulfamethoxazole + trimethoprim is an antibiotic, prescribed to treat a variety of infections (including bacterial, fungal, and protozoal).

So god forbid, if you do experience similar symptoms (which don't happen to everyone) I'd just encourage you to contact your doctor immediately for further advice on what to do from there. I hope this helps answer your question! ## IS ANYONE HAVING TROUBLE URINATING AFTER BEING ON THIS MED? I'VE TAKEN IT FOR A GRO... ...

My 21 year old daughter has been on this medication for 6 days. She developed a rash and in one day seems to cover her arms legs chest and face. She has quit taking medication and we are treated the rash. Any advice for relief. ## Hello, Anna! How are you and your daughter? Does the rash include hives and itching, or is it just a visible skin rash? A non-allergic rash can be a normal side effect of antibiotics and, if that's what it is, she should continue her course of treatment as it is nothing to worry about and will eventually go away on its own. However, if she has hives and itching, then she is possibly having an allergic reaction and should seek medical attention. Other side effects, as listed by the FDA, may include nausea, dizziness, headache and diarrhea. ...
