Any side effects of protein supplements like whey protein? And by the way, are these supplements effective?

Great for you. I am going to assume that you're buying from a reputable source and that the containers have been sealed from the manufacturer to prevent their being tainted. A vegetarian will probably need a protein supplement; they'll help you get bulked only if you're doing serious resistance training. Creatine and an electric muscle stimulator (if your physician approves) will also help you get mass. Read more...

When bodybuilding, is it better to take whey protein supplements immediately after workouts or regularly throughout the day?

Which whey protein supplements will causes muscle gain but does not cause massive weight gain?

All if used right. I don't know of any whey protein powder that causes "massive weight gain." in general, weight gain comes from excessive starches &/or fats. Pure protein like whey does not cause this. But one will not have muscle gain just by eating whey- only by exercising as well! i strongly advise whey from grass-fed cows not given hormones & antibiotics, even better if processed at a low temperature.

I was wondering if it would be ok to take whey protein supplements while taking bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) for a recent absess? Thanks

Should be ok. Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) can cause a decrease in kidney function in some people. If you add too much protein to your system, the combination of extra protein and decreased kidney function can be dangerous. Drink plenty of fluids while on this regimen. If you notice a darkening of your urine, pain on urination, decreased amount of urine being made, or feeling of general malaise, stop everyting and see your doctor! Read more...
