Nausea is a very common side effect of trimethoprim. If you are finding it too difficult you can ask your doctor to substitute it with some other anti-biotic which would be effective against the infection which you have. Or you could take medications to help gastric upset like anta-acids. Thanks.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
