Bad bladder infect. (Bactrim) headache excruciating pain lightheaded fever chills/shaking no appetite Tylenol (acetaminophen) hurts ulcers no energy. Nauseabed 2 days?

Be careful: If you aren't feeling better soon after taking the bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) seek a re-evaluation. It's possible that the urinary tract infection is caused by a bacteria resistant to Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) or worse that the bacteria has gotten into your blood stream. Again, have a low threshold to seek a re-evaluation, even if that means having to go to the ER. ...Read more

Adress the causes: I don't think meds are the best approach (though they can help if you have migraines). Most ha's are related to stress/muscle tension. I advise relaxation techniques like meditation, stretching/yoga, exercise & adequate sleep. Magnesium (esp. Taurate or glycinate), b vits, tulsi tea, ashwagandha, massage, acupuncture and classical homeopathy can all help. Sensitivities to common foods may trigger. ...Read more
