I have been on Bactrim DS for a week......the nausea is just awful and I have very little appetite...... but I am Herxing, so i know it is doing something !

Does this nausea settle down after a while, or is it likely to be a deal breaker? I'll push through it if I need to.

I am not sure if the nausea calms down or not. I was on Bactrim for only one week last summer and I thought I would die. After stopping the Bactrim it took another week or so to recover.

I, too, was nauseous. But I also had horrible muscle aches, shaking, couldn't walk, headaches, etc. Honestly, my reaction was so over the top that it is hard to explain just how awful it was.

I wish you good luck with the Bactrim. Supposedly it is a good choice of treatment and a lot of people have success with it.

Not sure about the nausea, just took bactrim
and flagyl 2 hours ago and did get some nausea.
It seemed to lessen by getting upright. It was definitely worse sitting in recliner. I did take it with food. I did read that taking 1000 mg of vitamin c / day -- spread out over the day
can help prevent some side effects with this med.
I take bactrim 7-8 days then off 1-2 days due to
skin itch and tired feeling. Hate to give it up
as has helped a bunch with Lyme/Bart symptoms.

Hope it works for you.

Beachinit.

my hearts goes out to you
nausea is the worst [Frown]

nausea plagued me on & off throughout tx because i have a sensitive stomach.

make sure to let your doctor know about this.
are you taking it with a full glass of water & food?

for me anything salty ( like corn chips) helped and some peppermint gum .
occasionally some meds for nausea

hope your feeling better soon
(( healing hugs))


* none of the above is medical advice just my 2 cents.
