Mine looks like it was just one pill a day. it said 800/160, but that may have been my ending treatment when I was out of the hospital and getting close to stopping.
I am 115 lb.
I am really scared of that SJS thing.
What other meds?
the 800/160 is the Bactrim DS (double strength)
I'm not sure if they would have weaned you off...usually that isn't the case from what I've seen with abx.
Are you looking for a substitute? You don't have the lung infection anymore do you?No, thank goodness. This was 2 or 3 years ago!! I am doing great now.
I am worried about
ever taking anything with the side effect of sjs. Those images were scary, and you're right, you can't unsee them.
They sort of weaned me off. They said i could use it as a prophylactic, especially if i was on prednisone, but then I had surgery and haven't needed any steroids.There are several options for other antibiotics: Amoxicillin or Augmentin, Azithromycin., maybe Ceftin...Not sure which ones would be useful for a lung infection...but probably one or more would be and you could ask your Dr. for an alternative to Bactrim.
