bactrim and prednisone
1075views
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.

cephalexin and clindamyacin
I would've had mine taken out, and saved tens of thousands, and a lot of pain. Actually wanted them removed and done with, but dentist tend not to want to do that. They would rather milk each tooth for every cent they can get out of it.
