Customer Question

I took one Bactrim800- 160mg this morning, and started feeling chills about 3-4 later. I had a flu shot 2 days ago, but no symptoms until this afternoon after the Bactrim. I still have the chills, and a headache...pushing water, but would love to know how long this may take (if it is the Bactrim).

your symptoms don't sound like side effects to Bactrim

they sound more like side effects from the flu shot or from a routine viral infection.

use tylenol and drink extra fluids to help decrease chills and headaches.

do you have a fever?

have you tried any tylenol yet?
