This contains 800mgs of Sulfamethoxazole and 160mgs of Trimethoprim, a generic for Bactrim. This is an antibiotic.

Some of the most common side effects include: nausea, drowsiness, diarrhea and dizziness.

Sinus Sufferer Says:

I took 2 doses of this medicine and ended up in the ER with a splitting headache, after I threw up everything I have eaten since the 3rd grade! I was disoriented and had trouble relating what was wrong to the doctors. After 5 hours in the ER with an IV, anti-nausea and pain meds... I was able to return home. Never take this medicine!

Took this medicine for Cellulitis. Felt better within eight (8) hours, and was able to work a double shift the very next day. Absolutely no noticeable side effects.

Idk to me all it does it make me sleepy. I'm hurting pretty bad but only been on the pill since yesterday. I do suffer from a mild headache but nothing I would consider unusual for me just more sleepy than anything. I haven't felt anything different as far as from the pain I'm dealing with but that could be because of me just starting it yesterday.

David Boils Says:

I have read most of these reviews and in my opinion this pill is the BOMB. I started taking it almost a week now with only one small side affect. I had 2 cysts/boils on both pectorals, 5 inches long and 2 1/2 inches wide, talk about PAIN! Within 2 days they came to a head a burst, ahhhhh relief they have shrunk so much and no surgery, 1 week left and I'm doing good; a lot of leakage but otherwise no pain. Only side affect; my anus is itching like crazy, but other then that the pill works great. Thumbs up!!!!

Just ME Says:

I've been nauseous ever since starting this medication but I'm not complaining. It beats being in a hospital with an IV which is what the dr wanted and it beats a head to toe rash as an allergic reaction to anything related to penicillin, amoxocillin, or septra. :) Nausea I can handle as long as I know its a side effect not reaction to the infection.

i was given this pill for a staph infection. Worked wonders with no side effects. This is what I found out about the pill on another site. FYI

This confusing string of letters stands for "sulfamethoxazole/trimpethoprim, double strength 800 mg-160 mg" and the "teva" refers to the manufacturer. This is an antibiotic preparation of a sulfa antibiotic plus trimethoprim. The brand name is Bactrim or Septra. It is used to treat a wide range of infections, from urinary tract infections to skin infections and certain kinds of pneumonia.

Sinus infections are no fun. Hoping this med works. This is my third one. Amoxicillin then keflex with no improvement. I just had my 2 nd dosage. Praying it works with no negative side effects.

I started taking Bactrim 3 days ago and have no problems but i wake up today with pain on my left side on my stomach. Before i started taking the meds i was fine didn't even know i have a bladder infection but now i'm taking this stuff i'm in pain. Call the doctor and she out of town so had to call another doctor and was told stop taking it and if i stay in pain go to ER.

I started this drug 4 days ago for a bad bronchitis and sinus infection. The first two days of medicine I had bad stomach cramps, headache and loss of appetite, but nothing I couldn't tolerate. Day 4 has been smooth so far...with marked improvement in my lungs. Sinus infection is taking a bit longer than id like.

Lopez Says:

Was prescribed this pill instead of ointment for bad case of eczema. They told me to avoid heat and sun. How is this possible in the middle of the summer?! I live in the desert and we're in a drought. To make things better (I'm being sarcastic) the AC was out at my work for a week. Bottom line I itched like crazy and broke out in small blisters on my skin that got exposed to the sun. Stopped taking it about 2 weeks ago, itching went away. Ditto with upset stomach and headaches.

Update. By day 3 began feeling pain in my wrists, elbows, ankles, knees & back of my neck. Also developed a red itchy rash. Sinus and ear infection was on its way out. Didn't realize that was an effect that was a warning on the package until I reread it. Was willing to deal with the pain and itching until while @ work I felt somewhat dazed. When i returned home, i felt a weird sensation in my chest. One i've never felt before. It frightened me. I had to stop taking it at that piont. Also got the most horribile yeast infection ever. I really wished i didnt have side effects. I'd be done with this illness. The only lasting side effect is one of my wrists still hurt a bit and my knee hurts only if im trying to' work out.Â
