Help me please! RX'd SMZ/TMP DS
My urine culture came back showing S. saprophyticus which will not be stopped with the Cephalixin I was taking. The nurse called to say I need a sulfa med. The doctor RX'd me SMZ/TMP DS 800-160. I had no clue what it was so did a little search and found that it is double strength Bactrim. I read here that it kills Cpni. I am thinking ... UH OH. Is this something I should do? I am suppose to take one PM and one AM until gone for 7 days.
I have never taken this stuff ever in my life so it is a BIG unknown anyway. But add to it I know it kills Cpn. Which I am seemingly infected with via the NACi test, etc. I am very scared to swallow one of these big ole tablets. Any tips, suggestions, advice? I know that you aren't doctors but you know more about Cpn than any of my doctors. So I just want your unbiased opinion. I definitely will make up my own mind. Thanks for anyone that is brave enough to share with me what they think about this. I would be geniunely grateful for any help. yikes.... this is a test I wasn't ready for yet. MM
