I have what I think were some type spider or some other type of insect bites 5 of them, they sort of look like a Brown Recluse bite, but not as bad. They turned into ugly open sores within a few hours, just like a Brown Recluse Spider bite would do. The doctor says the it now looks like cellulitis, that's a skin infection below the outer skin layers. So the bites went deep into the hypodermis skin layers .My doctor gave me some other type of antibiotic for 10 days 2000 mg a day. They cleared up some, but are still ugly pits, Yesterday, the doctor gave me the SMT 800/160 drugs. Take 2 per day, for 10 days.

Drug was prescribed yesterday (1/18/10) for a UTI which began on 1/17/10. Symptoms seemed to be lessening yesterday evening after the 2nd tablet. Time between urinating had stretched to 2 hours. Now, this morning it's back to 15 minute intervals before an overwhelming urge to urinate takes place. When urinating, there is also a bad burning sensation. Questions: (1) How long at 2 tablets per day before I experience some relief? (2) Caution against taking with grapefruit juice, but not orange juice. Why? Is there a connection with vitamin C, since I have been taking ~8 grams per day( I now have discontinued C in case there was.

However, I'd suggest making sure to have it checked out to be sure that it's not an allergic reaction, this medication does cause them in many people fairly frequently. Has it improved at all, yet? ...

I have cold for last one week, and it's getting worth. I have mussle ach, throat pain, and a little fever. Does Sulfameth Trimethoprim work for such symptons? ## Hi AJ, Sorry to say, but Antibiotics in general will not work for colds, flu, and other viral infections.

Based on the info above, I would recommend talking to your doctor before going through with taking the meloxicam, just to play it safe. I hope this info helps.

Started taking this on Friday at 8 pm. Woke up on Saturday with a horrible headache and red eyes. Took it again Saturday at 8am and again at 8pm. Woke up Sunday without headache although it still hurts when I cough. Still took meds at 8am. Is this normal or should I discontinue? ## I also have a slight fever. ## This is a sulfa antibiotic, so I am really not sure if anything is abnormal or unexpected. To be completely honest, what you're experiencing doesn't sound dangerous and may not be sufficient reason to stop taking it, but this is a very nasty antibiotic that I wouldn't recommend to anyone. I really think it should be reserved as a last resort, when other options haven't worked. Learn more SMZ/TMP details here. The final decision on whether or not you continue taki... ...
