Was put on a 3-day course of Trimethoprim. It seemed to cure my UTI but 3 days later it was back. Suffered AWFUL stomach cramps, headaches, tiredness and general feeling of 'unwell'. Would like to say it was good as it stopped me weeing every 5mins after the 2nd day but I can't stand any type of headache and I sure can't handle chronic stomach pains!!

The 1 hr before or 2 hrs after food instructions were not on my prescription - I just take it with food avoid nausea. Drug was effective after only 1 dose. Nauseous on and off but bearable. Felt a bit tired overall, lacking energy, loss of appetite and bad taste in mouth! Worth it tho....
