Sulfamethoxazole TMP
My 87 father was prescribed Sulfamethoxazole after being diagnosed with urinary/prostate infection.

Of course, doctor took him off meds and did not think the fever was related to prostrate issue or "sulfa" meds.

I have a lousy cold (heavy coughing, headache,very weak,). Doctor gave me this medication. I take meds for HBP, cholestorol, thyroid. Is this ok to take for this.

Such reactions are known to elevated blood pressure, it did it to me last year when I took it once. That final decision, of course, is up... ...
