I think that if a DR. is perscribing this drug they should ask you if you are allergic to Sulfa!!My daughter was given Bactram because she had an allergic reaction to Guardisil, now her whole body is broken out and she is miserable!!I would like to know how long the rash lasts before you start seeing any signs of improvement or getting any relief? I hate to send her to school like this, other kids ... Show Full Comment

Was given this medication to treat staph infection. Took it for an entire week and on the last couple of days started to develop red circular blotches on my arms. The rash spread like crazy to my legs, stomach, back, and neck. Needless to say, turns out I'm allergic to Sulfa. Totally scared the life out of me, dr. said the reaction is called erythema multifume. Scary stuff, beware of sulfa!!! ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
i took this drug for staph infection- it worked very fast and was quite effective, however- the side effects were terrible. i had vomitting and stomache upset, headaches, and felt tired. the benefits of the medication outweighed these side effects.

Comment:
I was presecribed Bactrim DS (bid 7days) to treat MSRA boils that I had on my back & legs. It helped with the boils, but the side effects made me feel worse than the MSRA. I had nausea, achiness, and tiredness. I would take it again as it was the only antibiotic that worked on my staph.
