I am taking Bactrim for a UTI and have side effects of hands shaking, gassy stomach, headache, loss of appetite, and irritability. There are 4 pills left and I am afraid to finish them. Is a substitute for Bactrim DS tablet SMX-TMP DS TAB? The script is 2 tablets twice a day. Should I just discontinue them or reduce them to one a day?

Those can be normal side effects of this medication, according to FDA reports. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, and diarrhea. And SMX-TMP DS is just an abbreviation for the ingredients in Bactrim DS.

An allergic reaction is listed by the FDA as possibly including fever, chills, trouble breathing, hives, and swelling.

This is a very strong antibiotic, though it is not usually the first choice for a UTI. Are you on any other medications? Have you had UTIs, before?
