    Bump. I'm starting this medication tomorrow night and want to be as informed as I can be.

    I think I may be paranoid as 2 pharmacists have OK'd this as have some friends who've taken it before lol but I'd rather be safe than sorry.

    Hi, i was on it for about 3 months then i started getting hives from it. The hives were so bad it was the worst itchy pain ever. I am very sensitive to some antibiotics though.

    good luck im sure you will be fine, maby take half a dose for your first night and see how you go?

    I'm Another person who reacts to sulfur and was prescribed this anyway. Was not fun. I ended up in hospital and will never take it again. A shame, because it worked really well at solving the problem I was having.

    For me, I simply cannot take sulfur medicines.

    Hopefully it will work for you without the side effects. Its supposed to be very effective.

    It was the first ab I had ever taken, prescribed for a uti. Not too sure whether it was the drug or the uti but I vomited all day after having it, I think I only needed three tablets or a very short course in any case. I havent had issues with any other abs but haven't had bacterim again that I know of.

    I am very, very nervous about starting this tonight

    Will be on eggshells for the next 10 days (that's how many tablets are in this first course). Have never had hives before and only known allergens are penicillin and Keflex. Never had a bad reaction to any anti-biotic other than those but am pretty frightened of this stuff due to all the horror stories online.

    No problems so far Hoping and praying it will take the acne away and that I'll be able to tolerate it and stay on it for as long as possible.

    Default Bactrim for UTI

    During my 27th week of pregnancy, I was on Bactrim for UTI. Before taking Bactrim dosage, I consulted with a pharmacist and he look up the CDC label for Bactrim, it is a category B drug.
