apo sulfatrim ds 800 160 mg can i drink alcohol

Have been on this medication for over a month...have a invite for a social event tonight. Would like have a few drinks. Is this ok ## Hello, Danny! How are you? It's best to stay away from alcohol, when taking any prescription medication. However, if you do chose to imbibe anyway, you should be aware that it can cause a worsening of the side effects, so you may experience more nausea, dizziness and drowsiness than normal. This effect can cause one drink to affect you as if you'd had, 2 drinks to affect you as if you'd had 4 and so on. Learn more APO Sulfatrim details here. And always check with your doctor, to make sure it is safe for you to drink. Is there anything else I can help with? ## cANE I DRINK WEN TAKING APO-SULFATRIM DS 800/160 MG ## How long can I keep this medic...

Too big a dose????apo-sulfatrim.

I have copd and have had declining lung function. We tried lots if anti biotic no change this. Finally my Dr. did a bronchoscopy and saline rinse and low and behold found two bugs that regular sputum tests missed. He put me on APO-Sulfatrim DS 800/160MG 3 times a day 2 tablets. My Pharmacist is going to check the dose. Too much? ## The NIH lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, headache, diarrhea, and non-allergic skin rash. Many doctors will adjust the dosage of an antibiotic according to the type and severity of the infection being treated. While it is always wise to double check, at this point your doctor likely wants to load you up to make sure these bugs are fully eradicated. Have you started taking them, yet? ## 5 hours seems like it...

Friend Just had a glass of wine while taking apo sulfatrim

My Friend Just had a glass of wine while taking apo sulfatrim (Sulfameth/Trimeth for a UTI. She's Vomiting uncontrollably, extreme nausea and dizziness wont stop for the last 2 hours. How long is this going to last? Can it be fatal? Seeking medical attention is not an option for at least a few hours. ## That's very odd, while the FDA does warn that taking it with alcohol may cause more severe side effects, they don't normally last that long. Is she one any other medications? (NDC code 67296-1163 for more details.) Other side effects may include dizziness, headache, and diarrhea. How is she doing, now? Has there been any change? Is she on any other medications?

And I didn't find any interactions listed between it and the Calcium carbonate in Tums, but you should check with your doctor or pharmacist to be certain.

Sulfatrim burning sensation

I have been taking APO-Sulfatrim DS 800/160mg for 7 days and have 9 days to go. I have a burning rectum after using the washroom for the past 4 days. Could this be a side affect of the drug? ## Hello, Leo! How are you doing? Has there been any change? Diarrhea can be a side effect of this medication, according to the U.S. FDA, so if you're experiencing that, it could explain the issue. Additionally, it can cause a yeast infection, in some people that take it, so that is also a possibility. The best thing to do would be to consult your doctor to be sure.

will apo sulfatrim cause welts

Can this medication cause welts and itching between the legs and genital area? I've been on these for 8 days now, 2 pills daily. Several days ago a welts formed on each cheek of my behind and now I'm getting them on the front and inside of my legs. Is this a skin reaction from the meds? I react to various meds in a negative way unfortunately. ## Hello, Phil! How are you? Has there been any change? It would be best to have this checked out immediately by a doctor, there is a chance that you are experiencing an allergic reaction. If that is the case, as reported by the NIH, they tend to get worse with repeated exposure, so you night need to stop taking it and switch to a different antibiotic. I had an allergic reaction to this medication a few years ago and it was horrible.

How are you? Do you have a kidney problem? If so, this antibiotic should not be taken.

what is apo sulfatrim DS 800/160mg

I take 2mg Ativan daily, 90 mg of Cymbalta daily, 105mg Methadone daily and sometimes use Zantac for heartburn. Are there any drug interactions I should know about? Any knowledge u have about this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. ## Hello, Sunny! How are you? Yes, you actually shouldn't take the Sulfatrim with Methadone, it can cause a prolonged QTc interval of the heart, which may be fatal/ The FDA classifies Methadone as an opiate, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with?
