alternatives to sulfameth trimethoprim 800/160 tabs
I seek an alternative to above-named Rx aka Bactrim for acne purposes. Thank you for your suggestions. ## Well, the one that's most commonly used now is Doxycycline. Bactrim isn't actually recommended for it, because it tends to cause dangerous allergic reactions in too many people. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

can i take bactrim ds 800 160 tabs for acne?
is bactrim ds 800-160 ok to take for my acne? or is my dermotologist phsycotic? i have been taking this medicine for awhile and it makes me itch. ## Hi Conner, This medication contains Sulfamethoxazole and Trimethoprim, it is an antibiotic that's used to treat many types of infections. Based on my research, Bactrim is also used to treat Acne. I didn't see "itching" listed as a side effect, so you could be having an allergic reaction. I would definitely speak with your doctor about lowering your dose or trying something different. Learn More: Bactrim Details I hope this helps! ...

Bactrim generic
I was prescribed bactrim or moderate acne and have been on the generic form sulfameth/trimethoprim 800/160 once daily for 5-6 weeks and have seen little to no results. Anyone know time line for this stuff to start working? I've been on keflax, ampicillin with success but I recall those working faster. No side effects but no success either, any advice?? ## From what I've found when researching this, results should start to be seen at about 6 weeks of use. If you haven't seen any results yet, then it just may not be the right antibiotic to help you. Have you ever tried Doxycycline? You can learn more Doxycycline details here. I'd suggest asking your doctor about it, if you haven't. Many people use it very successfully for acne. ...

bactrim ds
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. I also have problem with sleeping and wierd dream... ...
