I am taking sulfameth trimethoprim 800-160 tabs (1 tab. twice a day) The doctor said I had e-coli in my urine. I have suffered from uti's with lower back pain for over 2 years and have been on different kinds of antibotics. but this is the first time I have been told that I have e-coli in my urine. It has been 4 days since I started this new medicine I have 3 more days to go. I have been drinking 8 bottles of water a day and I still have lower back pain and don't feel much better. Do you have any advice?

Thanking you in advance,

Side effects of Sulfamethoxazole + Trimethoprim can include:

Painful or swollen tongue; dizziness, spinning sensation; ringing in your ears; joint pain; or sleep problems (insomnia)

More serious side effects that can occur may include:

Fever, sore throat, and headache with a severe blistering, peeling, and red skin rash; the first sign of any skin rash, no matter how mild; pale skin, easy bruising or bleeding; cough, feeling short of breath; diarrhea that is watery or bloody; feeling restless or irritable, confusion, hallucinations, seizure; slow heart rate, weak pulse, severe tingling, numbness, muscle pain or weakness; nausea, stomach pain, loss of appetite, itching, dark urine, clay-colored stools, jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes); fever, chills, body aches, flu symptoms; or urinating less than usual or not at all.

This is not a complete list of side effects, so I would definitely consider contacting your doctor regarding the blurred vision and eye pain. It's very likely that they are side effects of this drug.

To Lisa,
I wish you the best of luck in getting better. My only suggestions to you are to stay on top of eating plenty of non-citrus fruits (blueberries, dates, bananas, as well as some fresh parsley), as they will help cleanse your system and are helpful to the kidneys. Parsley tea has been a used traditionally to treat urinary tract infection, kidney stones and liver, bladder and prostrate problems. I would blend it up with water and have some throughout the day, along with the said fruits.

If you have any more questions or comments to add, please post back so I can further assist you.
