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. It's extremely important though to notify your doctor - the one who prescribed those antibiotics. Hopefully your infection is well treated enough where you can stop everything. There are plenty of other agents that could be used to fight an infection like that. Stopping before things get worse is important. ...Read more

NormalOrNot-Go Back!: Don't speculate, ambulate (OK, use your car and drive) back to the ER for a re-check. There are too many variables to consider and sort-out via a short text message.

Blepharoplasty: Drooping or sagging eyelids can be caused by aging or the congenital (befroe birth) make-up of your eyelids. Blepharoplasty can remove excess lid skin, giving s less tired appearance.

If you are having pain you should be taking pain relieving medication and possibly antibiotics if you have an infection. It's not necessary to take antibiotics before your treatment.
