      When I had my first UTI, my doctor prescribed me Bactrim which is a really strong sulfa drug used to treat various infections. It works on pneumonia, ear infections, and urinary tract infections like I had.

      When I first saw the pills I thought that there was no way I would be able to swallow those horse pills. They are really big, and it took a lot to get it down, for me, but I have trouble with large pills. The directions asked me to drink plenty of water with it, at least 8 ounces, so I drank that and then some. I was supposed to take it twice a day for 7 days to treat my UTI. Also I had to eat with


      it, so I would not get an upset stomach. Since I am sensitive to most medicines I have taken, I did not want to get one of the more common side effects of nausea or vomiting. Eating would have prevented that, and it did seem to because I never felt nauseous.

      I took one of the pills in the morning and was getting ready to go to the circus because I had bought tickets in advance. About an hour after I had taken my first pill, I started sweating and turning pale even though it was still winter and cool out. I had trouble concentrating, and I thought it might be tied to my blood glucose since I am hypoglycemic, but a quick check with my monitor showed that ...


      • my glucose was normal. Maybe 20 minutes later, I started to have trouble breathing because I had started to feel really anxious. I recognized it as the beginnings of a panic attack, and at this point I was already at the circus (am glad I was a passenger and did not drive myself) waiting for the show to start. I ended up having a 4 hour full blown panic attack. Eventually, the medicine started to weaken and leave my system and I started to feel more normal. But, it was a nightmare, all from one pill.

        I talked to my doctor and he mentioned that people who are allergic to sulfa drugs can have a reaction like that, some have it worse, and he made a note in

        my file that I have an allergy to Bactrim and other sulfa drugs. Since I only took one pill, I cannot say if it would have cured my UTI, but I absolutely can say that after taking the one pill, the pain in my abdomen was gone. So, I believe it to be a strong medicine that can really help clear away a UTI. I was amazed that it relieved my pain, and I would have loved to have been able to continue the medicine because I bet I would have cured me in fewer days than any other drug I’ve taken for it. But, I will never take it again because for that one day, I felt like I was going to die and it wasn’t a very fun experience.
