Flagyl side effects
1411views
It's good to read this, I thought I was just "crazy". For me the side effects were horrendous and between them and the depression I was felt like giving up. I am taking nothing right now - it's the weekend. but I'll have to call my dr. because I have the c. diff. illness.

I have started experiencing depression as well after taking this drug. I completed 10 days and stopped but the depression and anxiety are still there. Gastroenterologists should ask if you are prone to depression or have a family history of such before prescribing.

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.
