bactrim and prednisone
While both drugs can potentially cause these side effects, prednisone in particular can commonly cause anxiety reactions, including insomnia.
Definitely contact your doctor to get their opinion; if it's severe enough to bother you that much, your doctor may change you to something else or alter your dosage.

leg and leg pain
ooooo me too! Pain in my arms & shoulders are debilitating, I called dr & he said stop the meds. He called me in a diff. rx
Dee B  |  August 26, 2014
I just finished a 14 day round of Amoxicillin, I have had cronic pain in my hip, leg, knee and elbow all on the left side of my body. I googled if Amoxicillin could cause pain, and in Female patients over 50 is it highly likely. I think I would rather suffered out the soar throat and stopped up ears. I am praying that this pain leaves my body, it has been 24 hours since my last dose, and the pain is not as bad as it has been.
