Abdominal Bloating: 36 year old gentleman with a past medical history significant for GERD and cyst treated with Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) while on antibiotics. Abdominal bloating can happen for several reasons. While taking Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim), the important thing to know is that the antibiotic can cause severe diarrhea, fever. Now that you have finished your course, studies show probiotic use may decrease antibiotic associated diarrhea.
