Is bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) good in treating stomach ache?

Is bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) good in treating stomach ache?

Please, no!: Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) is an antibiotic and would only be useful for treating a specific infection caused by a bacteria sensitive to this drug. The indiscriminate use of antibiotics has led to the development of drug-resistant bacteria that are causing life-threatening infections. Furthermore, taking antibiotics can kill "good" bacteria in our gut, leading to the overgrowth of bad ones. Put down the bactrim! ...Read more

I was prescribed Bactrim and diflucan on Friday but I am still having severe symptoms. Burning urethra, abdominal pain, and frequent urination. Do I need different antibiotics?

I was prescribed Bactrim and diflucan on Friday but I am still having severe symptoms. Burning urethra, abdominal pain, and frequent urination. Do I need different antibiotics?

Possibly wrong med: Diflucan is commonly prescribed for yeast infections, which can cause "burning" & frequency for a few days, but, not abdominal pain. Bactrim is a standard first line antibiotic for urinary infection but many organisms are resistant. Was your urine cultured? That would tell whether or not you have a UTI & if so what antibiotic would be effective. Suggest urinalysis, culture &? new antibiotic. ...Read more

Frequent urination for a week now, gyno said maybe bladder infection and prescribed bactrim. Have been feeling abdominal pain and stomach is bloated?

Allergy to bactrim, (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) I was using an albuterol sulfate inhaler. I have muscle aches, large itchy bumps, and abdominal pain. These two allergies related?

Allergy to bactrim, (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) I was using an albuterol sulfate inhaler. I have muscle aches, large itchy bumps, and abdominal pain. These two allergies related?

No: Sulfa in Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) is entirely different from sulfate which is rather inert. Muscle spasm may result from albuterol especially when used above the recommended dose or frequency but would not account for the itchy bumps. I suspect that your problem is likely from a viral infection but do consult your doctor if the problem gets worse or persists for more than a few days. ...Read more
