My son is 12 months old and was prescribed Sulfameth Trimeth 5ml twice daily. Can this keep him awake? He's been having stomach cramps which I have been treating with greek yogurt to add back the good bacteria. However, he seems wide awake when he should be exhausted and ready for sleep. I'm wondering if a side effect of this medication could be sleeplessness. ## Yes, it certainly can be a side effect of this medication. As a sulfa based antibiotic, it can cause lots of crazy problems and side effects and I actually never recommend it to anyone, unless they've run out of other options.

My daughter is 5 years old and has urinary reflux stage 3. She has been taking sulfameth-trimeth since she was 2 years old. She always has breakthrough infections. My question is what are the long term side effects of her taking the medication for so long and is it necessary? I'm afraid it might be causing more damage than good to her little body. ## To be completely honest, I'd also be concerned, Sulfamethoxazole with Trimethoprim can cause some nasty problems in a lot of people that take it. Having taken it just once recently for an infection, I'll never take it again. Learn more Sulfamethoxazole and Trimethoprim details here. As to possible long term effects, it may cause kidney, or liver damage, though it is not common. There are other antibiotic options that may be safe... ...

I woke up this morning with a skin rash on my arms, stomach, and thighs. So far I have taken 5 sulfamethoxazole tmp ds tablets. One pill twice a day. I know rash is a side effect. I have one pill remaining, is it ok to take the last pill ## Not being your doctor, I cannot tell you if it is ok to take the pill(s) or not. However my opinion is if this is your last pill, you should finish taking it as prescribed by your doctor; unless the side effects become more severe or if your complication has been taken care of already by the medication. Based on your description of the rash it sounds like it is severe, but it is really up to you if you feel the need to contact your doctor for advice. Again, your decision should probably be based on whether or not the side effects are too much for you... ...

I have a 4 year old grandson that has been on this for 10 days. No problems till tenth day. Broke out in a rash all over his body. Face (Cheeks) puffy. We gave him Benadryl. No sore throat or diarrhea. We think it's a reaction from the drug. Can you advise or confirm ? ## Hello, Patricia! How is he doing? Yes, it was likely due to an allergic reaction to, this antibiotic causes it fairly frequently comparatively and in most cases during the last day or two of treatment. He shouldn't continue taking it and it needs to be noted in his medical records, so he doesn't take it again in the future, because the reactions to this one just tend to get worse each time the person takes it, again. His doctor also needs to be informed, so they can check it out. Is there anything else I ca... ...

I have a staph skin infection, rashes all over my body and I went to see my doctor, she prescribed me sulfameth trimethoprim 800/160mg. I have been taking this antibiotic for four days now and the rashes seem to pronounce a bit more. So my question is, does the rash get more pronounced while one is taking it on your skin before it starts healing and disappearing? ## Hello, Richard! How are you? I'm sorry about the problems that you're having. The FDA classifies this medication as an antibiotic and it can actually cause a non-allergic skin rash as a side effect, along with nausea, dizziness, headache and diarrhea. It would be best to have your doctor check things out, but it's most likely just a side effect of this antibiotic. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I had ... ...

I had a pillar cyst removed from the back of my head and the wound got infected, so the doctor prescribed this med to clear it up. Wow! I have never had an allergic reaction to anything in my life, but this drug knocked me for a loop. I thought I had the stomach flu one day--kept trying to throw up, diarrhea, stiff neck, headache, feverish, affected my vision. I slept the entire day. I stopped taking the med because my stomach wouldn't tolerate anything. The next day, I started to feel better, so started back on the med and the symptoms came back with a venegaence--. that's when I looked up the side effects and called the doctor. I got into the shower after that and noticed I had a horrible rash all over the upper part of my body. It's been almost 24 hours since I stopped ta... ...
