I have had to take Bactrim DS for a week and I have heard you can easily get Steven-Johnson Syndrome after taking it. How likely is that to occur?
I was just diagnosed with ca-mrsa and I'm scared since it is often resistant to drugs. I just started bactrim ds tonight. What are the chances of it not responding to any drug? How can you know if it's caught early enough? Thank you!
Partially resistant: Ca MRSA is not particularly worse than having regular staph infection. It is not related to the flesh eating bacteria scare. The choice of antibiotics is limited, but generally the infection is sensitive to at least a few of the mainstream antibiotics of which Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) is one. If your doctor thought you were at great risk you would not be at home. ...Read more

I took bactrim Ds at 4 o'clock yesterday my next dose is for the morning. Can I still have an anaphylxis reaction? Or am I good? Just make me parniod cause I know a lot of people are allergic to sulfa. What is the time frame for that to happen?
Possible, very rare:
It's still possible to have an anaphylactic reaction but it's less likely since you tolerated the first dose.
About 3% of people are allergic to sulfa drugs but most of the reactions are rashes. Anaphylactic reactions to sulfa are very rare, occurring only in one out of tens of thousands of people, so no need to be particularly worried about that.

I am assuming that you are talking about taking the antihistamine for other allergy purposes, though. ...Read more
