Eyelid abscess with cellulitis for one week. Dr Rx smz-tmp DS and clindamycin 4 days ago. Was ok until bactrim dose today and now very dizzy & nausea.
Bactrim side-effect: Bactrim (TMP/SMX) can cause neurologic side effects - so I would place the blame there.

Droopy Eyelid Cost: Depending on the degree of eyelid drooping, the procedure may be covered by insurance.

It is a defensive reaction of the tissue to prevent the spread of infectious materials to other. ...Read more
