I was prescribed Trimetroprime by my GP for a UTI, immediatly after taking it I felt so ill, headache couldn't get out bed, lower back pain and just aching all over. I've never felt so ill in all my life. I came up with a rash on my face, legs, arms, stomach it looks as if I've been burnt all over... Went back to my GP and told them I have had a reaction to Trimethroprime, and they said it was unlikely and just gave me some antihistamines, which hasn't helped.. This is 3 months on and I am still suffering with sore red inflammed skin I've tried everything steroid creams and Telfast (the strongest antihistamine you can get), I was given a course of Penicillin cos they thought it might be a skin infection, still no improvement!
I'm now taking 4 steriod tablets a day (Prednisolone), and its making no difference, will be going back to my GP tomorrow.. I'm waiting to see the Demotologist at my local hospital.
I know for a FACT TRIMETROPRIME IS TO BLAME! I was fine fit healthy with perfect skin until I took this drug, these last 3 months have been complete hell.. I can't work or put clothes on without being in complete pain with my skin, even having a bath stings like mad. I'm just worried its never gonna go.
This Drug should be banned!
