I took 1.... yes 1! I had no pain w/ my uti but I sure did after taking the 1 pill. Its HUGE 20 min later I thought I took 50 asprin. My stomach was rolling I was shaking, sweating and felt sick to my stomach, dizzy and SCARED! 20 min into it I took an advil. My lower back and lower stomach area hurt terribly. Felt like labor pains! Advil kicked in and an hr & 1/2 later I felt almost normal!! No pain in the morning urinating! Called dr said Just discontinue, your done ???? What the heck was that? Wow. I guess I'm cured?

taking it for a bladder infection.

i was given enough for 5 days

the doctor who prescribed it said it is meant to target ecoli, which is most often the cause of UTI's/bladder infection.

it's day 4 and i still have UTI-like symptoms (i.e. still need to pee a lot and slight burning)

side effects i felt were an upset stomach, bad headaches, and some lower back pain

Amber Says:

This is my second day taking it and I was prescribed to take it twice a day for 7 days. The doctor really doesn't know what is wrong with me, she gave me this medicine on a hunch of what I may have: a kidney infection. I have had more lower back and lower abdominal than before I started taking the medication. When I started to take a z-pack for a sinus infection, I began to shake, feel nauseous, and have extremely rapid heart beat with a slight rash. I don't know what these doctors are thinking and I have no idea what's happening to my body. HELP. Ugh. This is horrible.

I have taken Sulfamethoxazole Tmp SS Tabitp for acne for over a year now and have had no adverse side affects. It has done wonders for my acne and has brought it down to only a few bumps here and there; mostly when I skip a pill on accident.

Bryan Says:

I am also taking this medication for staph. On day 2, I began having vivid nightmares, confusion, inability to focus. Now, on day 5, I have started having hallucinations. It is working for the staph, however. Guess I will see what happens.

I started taken sulfamethoxazole-tmp ds tabitp for about 20 days for acne, but on the 20th day when i woke up I had a rash that spread over 70% of my body in one hour. I now take prednisone 20mgs to clear the rash caused by the sulfamethoxazole. I can't even shower without my skin burning, and swelling ihope this goes away soon. I wonder how this accured?

I started taking this yesterday for a sinus infection. Today, when I'm standing, there is horrible pain in my calves, unless I move my weight from one foot to the other, providing a little relief. It's scary!
