In about 1 to 2 hours after taking this drug I get the chills and shakes and all my joints ache. I all so get very queezy. I have been fighting this for 5 days now. Can you help me? Thanks.

I have 5 day dose of the following antibiotic: SMZ/TMP DS 800-160 TAB

It was used previously on: 3/3/10

For whatever reason I did not finish this Rx and have #10 pills left. My question is... What is the shelf life of this antibiotic??? I believe I am beginning a UTI and would like to take these and push the water and cranberry juice to get on and over this infection. Thank You!!

This is a generic for Bactrim, which is an antibiotic that's used to treat various types of infections.

Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea.

Learn more Bactrim details here.

In regards to the original post, if you experience such symptoms, you should contact your doctor immediately as that may be the start of a dangerous allergic reaction.

Linda, the expiration date would be 1 year from whenever you received them from your pharmacy, after that they start to lose effectiveness.

And no, if you only have 10 then you don't have enough to finish a complete course of treatment, which creates the risk of developing antibiotic resistance.

Are there any other questions or comments?

Is there anything I can help with?
