This is Dr. David
I am another expert here.
Bactrim is an antibiotic and can upset your stomach which can cause acid reflux and sore throat.
you should never take it on an empty stomach.
you should not stop taking the Batrium because this will lead to antibiotic resistance.
if you are having symptoms of acid reflux, heart burn, upset stomach, sour stomach, you may benefit from a stomach acid reducer like zantac or prilosec as well to help your sore throat.
are you having symptoms of acid reflux and sour stomach?

Stop taking it and call your doctor immediately
