How do you diagnose chemical meningitis, I was recently prescribed sulfamethoxazole-TMP DS & had classic meningitis symptoms.
Probably unrelated: You can't get chemical meningitis from taking this (or any other antibiotic) by mouth. Most people with "classic meningitis symptoms" don't have meningitis. See your doctor if symptoms continue or if severe. (If severe headache, high fever, or altered consciouness, get seen immediately, with an ER visit if necessary.) ...Read more
How do you get a urine infection? Could a partner give it to you? I have to take a drug called sulfamethoxazole tmp ds twice a day. Iam scared to take it because of the side effects.
Urinary tract infections are very common in women due to their short urethra. It is most common when they are sexually active, or delay urination (such as with teachers) when they shouldn't have. Remember always urinate after sex first, then cuddle.
The drug you mention is a sulfa antibiotic which is commonly used for treatment of uti's. It is very safe and very effective. Hope that helps. ...Read more

Hope you are not a smoker which increases chances of cancer larynx. ...Read more

Sexual ok, beer not: Sexual activity is not unsafe when being treated for a uti, but I would keep in mind that many women acquire uti's because of very vigorous sexual activity, so I would avoid anything especially athletic or likely to involve the area of the urethra (right below the clitoris). Alcohol is not a good idea with an infection, or while on antibiotics. Avoid it until you are finished with the medication. ...Read more

If acne is mild, use topical antibiotics to avoid side effects of systemic antibiotics: e.g., smx-tmp is a notorious photosensitizer, so use sunblock while taking it.
