I have a screaming urinary tract infection. I haven't had one in years, and forgot just how bad they were!
My general doctor prescribed Septra DS also known as Bactrim. I've taken it before and tolerate it very well, but have never taken an antibiotic with Crohn's. Has anyone taken this with Crohn's? Should I be concerned? I would contact my GI, but he is out of town. I'm in so much pain from the UTI that I might just start taking it now..... I think I'd drink arsenic if it would take this pain away!
Thank you for any replies. Blessings, Julie
