Yes.: It can cause stomach upset. Make sure to take with food and water. Adding a daily probiotic or yogurt can also help replenish the normal flora in your GI tract with healthy bacteria, to minimize having diarrhea as a side effect.

Listen to your doc.: Your doctor has diagnosed you after special exam and with urine analysis and Culture and sensitivity. When you have 2different types of infection you may need 2 different drugs. Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) is antibacterial and Flagyl specifically targets parasites like Trichomonas.
