Were you on Bactrim, or Bactrim DS? (DS is double strength)

I know of two LLMD's who prescribe Bactrim DS - 1 pill 2 X daily.


You might want to start off on once daily and work up to twice daily.

i love bactrim ds it has effect against lyme, babs and bart.

doxy for a prostate issue? that's unusual they typically give you something that can penetrate better in that area like cipro.

like any drug sulfas can cause issues for some but for most its fine. take the bactrim and if you have a near immediate reaction of hives, short breath, etc. that's an allergic reaction else go with it.

my personal feeling is the really old drugs that have been out of favor for a while treating lyme and company seem to be more effective due to the organisms not adapting to them (cause they haven't been used forever). totally unscientific opinion but makes sense to me.

Acne patients take bactrim for years, how did it kill your nervers or start a vasculitis? And if it did, did you recover and how?


Bart lives in the blood vessels and bactrim cause you vasculitis, so i think it was more of a die off, rather than bactrim killing you.
