bactrim and prednisone
Yesterday I was prescribed Prednisone & SMZ/TMP Generic for Bactrim. The SMZ/TMP is making my stomach feel queezy, strange dreams, slight fever. The first day on the combo I felt better, now I feel like I'm back to square 1... Not a good feeling

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.
