Bactrim Diarrhoea Causes and Reviews
What is diarrhea?
Diarrhea is loose, watery stools (bowel movements). You have diarrhea if you have loose stools three or more times in one day. Acute diarrhea is diarrhea that lasts a short time. It is a common problem. It usually lasts about one or two days, but it may last longer. Then it goes away on its own.
Diarrhea lasting more than a few days may be a sign of a more serious problem. Chronic diarrhea -- diarrhea that lasts at least four weeks -- can be a symptom of a chronic disease. Chronic diarrhea symptoms may be continual, or they may come and go.What causes diarrhea?
The most common causes of diarrhea include
- Bacteria from contaminated food or water
- Viruses such as the flu, norovirus, or rotavirus . Rotavirus is the most common cause of acute diarrhea in children.
- Parasites, which are tiny organisms found in contaminated food or water
- Medicines such as antibiotics, cancer drugs, and antacids that contain magnesium
- Food intolerances and sensitivities, which are problems digesting certain ingredients or foods. An example is lactose intolerance.
- Diseases that affect the stomach, small intestine, or colon, such as Crohn's disease
- Problems with how the colon functions, such as irritable bowel syndrome
Some people also get diarrhea after stomach surgery, because sometimes the surgeries can cause food to move through your digestive system more quickly.
Sometimes no cause can be found. If your diarrhea goes away within a few days, finding the cause is usually not necessary.Who is at risk for diarrhea?
People of all ages can get diarrhea. On average, adults In the United States have acute diarrhea once a year. Young children have it an average of twice a year.
People who visit developing countries are at risk for traveler's diarrhea. It is caused by consuming contaminated food or water.What other symptoms might I have with diarrhea?
Other possible symptoms of diarrhea include
- Cramps or pain in the abdomen
- An urgent need to use the bathroom
- Loss of bowel control
If a virus or bacteria is the cause of your diarrhea, you may also have a fever, chills, and bloody stools.
Diarrhea can cause dehydration, which means that your body does not have enough fluid to work properly. Dehydration can be serious, especially for children, older adults, and people with weakened immune systems.When should I see a doctor for diarrhea?
Although it is usually not harmful, diarrhea can become dangerous or signal a more serious problem. Contact your health care provider if you have
- Signs of dehydration
- Diarrhea for more than 2 days, if you are an adult. For children, contact the provider if it lasts more than 24 hours.
- Severe pain in your abdomen or rectum (for adults)
- A fever of 102 degrees or higher
- Stools containing blood or pus
- Stools that are black and tarry
If children have diarrhea, parents or caregivers should not hesitate to call a health care provider. Diarrhea can be especially dangerous in newborns and infants.How is the cause of diarrhea diagnosed?
To find the cause of diarrhea, your health care provider may
- Do a physical exam
- Ask about any medicines you are taking
- Test your stool or blood to look for bacteria, parasites, or other signs of disease or infection
- Ask you to stop eating certain foods to see whether your diarrhea goes away
If you have chronic diarrhea, your health care provider may perform other tests to look for signs of disease.What are the treatments for diarrhea?
Diarrhea is treated by replacing lost fluids and electrolytes to prevent dehydration. Depending on the cause of the problem, you may need medicines to stop the diarrhea or treat an infection.
Adults with diarrhea should drink water, fruit juices, sports drinks, sodas without caffeine, and salty broths. As your symptoms improve, you can eat soft, bland food.
Children with diarrhea should be given oral rehydration solutions to replace lost fluids and electrolytes.Can diarrhea be prevented?
Two types of diarrhea can be prevented - rotavirus diarrhea and traveler's diarrhea. There are vaccines for rotavirus. They are given to babies in two or three doses.
You can help prevent traveler's diarrhea by being careful about what you eat and drink when you are in developing countries:
- Use only bottled or purified water for drinking, making ice cubes, and brushing your teeth
- If you do use tap water, boil it or use iodine tablets
- Make sure that the cooked food you eat is fully cooked and served hot
- Avoid unwashed or unpeeled raw fruits and vegetables

Bactrim Diarrhoea Reviews
|Sat, 14 Apr 2012|
I took one Bactrim pill and a little over an hour later was in the hospital. My heart was racing, I was shaking all over and I couldn't get my breath. I had been sitting quietly reading the paper when it was like someone injected me with Redbull! The medication had kicked in. Of course, the emergency room doctor said it wasn't the Bactrim. I had to follow up with a cardiologist and of course it wasn't the Bactrim. I then had to wear a heart monitor for 30 days and had no "episodes" while wearing it, and my echocardiogram was excellent. Still my doctor said it wasn't the Bactrim. So what was it, I asked? "I don't know." I do know. It was the Bactrim!! No other possible explanation. And, no, they both agreed it was not a panic attack.

|I took my 10 year old daughter to the ER last Sunday, over a week ago, and they diagnosed her with Urinary Tract Infection. They prescribed Sulfameth / Trimeth or Bactrim. Since taking the medicine, she has had some symptoms she cannot explain since she is only 10, but she tells me she has body aches, constant headaches, and she also mentions that her heart hurts or jumps (palpitations). I also notice that her mood changes and that she has trouble going to sleep. Concerned, I went online and found that these are not listed as side affects. She doesn't get sick often, so I really worry about her. I decided last night to stop the medecine since she is very uncomfortable; I will not have her go thru this.|

|I am the person who wrote about my 10 year old daughter. Can Bactrim also have the symptoms of palpitations, body aches, stomach aches, trouble sleeping and mood changes?|

|I'm going through it now, I have so many hives all over me that some parts of me look like I have sunburn. I facilate between thinking quot;just shoot me knowquot; and quot;I hope this ends soon, I can get through this.quot; I itch so much. It's everywhere. I also developed swollen nodules in the back of my head (near neck) and sides of neck (lymph nodes), had headache, cough, swollen eyes, etc., went to ER last night and they fast tracked me in front of 40 waiting people! gave me prednisone (10 -20mg), z something (?) 2 tables? started with a 'Z', 2 benadryls and sent me home with a scrip for Predisone. They tole me drink a lot of water, so I was up all night itching and applying coritzone cream and going to the bathroom. I just took a luke warm bath, but it didn't help. I'd hate to think how I'd feel if I hadn't gone to ER, the rash has spread and itching is unbearable. I just lathered tea tree oil all over me having read it on natural health web site. Next I'll try chamomile tea bags, etc.|

|I took Bactrim for an infected Bartholin Cyst for four days. On the third day I started thinking very disturbing thoughts that were almost like they were not my own. It made me terrified of being alone with my son, afraid that I would hurt him. At night the thoughts would just come back and turn into anxiety attacks that made me sweat and shake. I was very upset that i had to find out on my own that I was experiencing side effects of Bactrim. None of my side effects were on the information sheet and that made me think my problems were because i wanted to think those thoughts. I will never take Bactrim again. And if you have a choice don't take it!|

|No problems for 2 weeks then bam! Severe itching, ringing in ears, heart palpitations, and the worst part is the intense, electric feeling in my leg muscles. My legs feel like they are being torn from the inside out. I stopped taking this junk 2 days ago and the syptoms are going away, but only a little. I'm athletic and this is really messing up my sports. I truly believe that many drugs are way more dangerous than they're telling us because it's so lucrative. I will never see a doctor again unless I'm about to die. This isn't the first time I've been srewed by doctors and their poisons. I say this and I'm married to a doctor!|
