In brief: Sulfa?

Usually this drug is combined with sulfa and thus are you sure that trimethoprim is the only med? Regardless you have a serious and even potentially life-threatening reaction to this drug and need to avoid it.
If symptoms still present for more than a day or gets worse, need to see doctor immediately.
