Have you consulted your doctor?

This contains the active ingredients Sulfamethoxazole and Trimethoprim, it is an antibiotic commonly prescribed under the brand name Bactrim.

And this isn't listed as a normal side effect, but you should talk to your doctor, because we have had many reports recently of people experiencing unusual side effects with this medication.

Hi Andy,

Insomnia is actually reported to be a side effect of this drug, among many others that in my opinion could inadvertently cause more insomnia:

upset stomach
loss of appetite
skin rash
sore throat
fever or chills
mouth sores
unusual bruising or bleeding
yellowing of the skin or eyes
joint aches

NOTE: the list above is not a complete list of side effects. To view more possible side effects, please refer to the link below (and scroll down to the section called "side effects"):

Both folic acid and folinic acid were found equally effective in reducing the adverse effects of trimethoprim + sulfamethoxazole, so unless new evidence is found for folinic acid that shows it is more effective than the cheaper folic acid, the latter will continue to be the preferred treatment method.

I hope this information helps!
