How Long Does Bloating Associated With Constipation Last
Can kidney infection cause bloating and constipation? How long does that last? I've been taking bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) ds for 2 1/2 days now.
The Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim): Bloating is a common side effect of antibiotics, including Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim).

A bottle of magnesium citrate if none of that helps. I hope you are also keeping yourself hydrated with water as well as that may also help. ...Read more

Drinking hot water helps break down the gas and moves it down to be passed rectally. ...Read more
