Updated
Jill Says:

I have heard that the combination of bactrim and methadone can throw you into withdrawals. I have mrsa and staph but cannot do withdrawals. Does anyone have information on this potential interaction?

I' have been on methadone for a 7 yrs. I have taken bacterium triple timed and have NEVER experienced any kind of withdrawals from it. I hope this helps.

Hello Jill,

I did a search on the NIH website but I was unable to find any clinical studies that would suggest this is true. In addition, when I checked the drug interaction portion of the NIH website all I was able to find is that when these two drugs are taken together it increases the chance of having a negative heart reaction.

Though I am not saying what you heard is completely unfounded I just was not able to find any evidence from a reliable source. If anyone else knows where I could find something that would support this theory I would be willing to investigate further to provide as much useful information as I can find thereafter.
