Reason: spider bite(brown recluse), also treated with doxycycline at same time as staph as precautionary Date: 19 June 2011
Side Effects
after a few days= hives!! awful extremely itchy whitish or small red bumps or bite-like hives! same day & after= mild blurred vision & moderate nausea.. also havent been able to sleep- probably due to all the itching which is causing slight paranoia! :(

Additional Thoughts
have taken bactrim before & had nausea, so i think i quit taking it pretty quickly then, but i took it this time along with doxycycline since they were treating me for double infection incase the spider bite had already or was developing into staph infection- so side effects could be combination of both medications... dont recommend bactrim or its generics for many people since it has always given me upset stomach- but definitely dont take it with doxycycline! especially if u have had allergic reactions to antibiotics before, which i havent but obviously both are high side effect drugs! no fun
