I'm a 24 year old male and went to doctors on friday 29th Jan with aching bladder/kidneys and slight diharrea.
Did a urine sample (results should hopefully be back today) and doctor prescribed Trimethoprim 200mg which I'm taking twice a day.
Yesterday I woke up felt fine for 15 minutes then started feeling REALLY nauseous, sick (but wasn't actually sick), shaking, head felt hot and couldn't get comfortable or sleep through the symptoms either but by lunchtime felt okay!
I went back in to the doctors and he had another feel of my abdomen and took my temperature which he said was fine (despite me feeling feverish) and basically said it could either be the infection or side effects causing these symptoms. He said to try and eat something, keep taking on lots of liquids and to wait for my results.
This morning woke up, felt fine for 15 minutes then same again-nausea, feeling sick (was very nearly sick!), shakes, feeling feverish etc
I woke at about 7.30 am it's now 12.15pm and I feel okay again.
Anyone else have the same thing or knows of something to negate these side effects? I'm drinking plenty of water and flat lucozade/cola as suggested by the doctors, also taking paracetamol and ibuprofen as often as the packets say (and taking them an hour apart from each other)
