User rating for this question
Hello, I have been taking bactrim since thursday for a staph infection. I have an open sore/wound on my chin, and doctor told me to take a prescription of valtrex. I took the bactrim today (2/17/14) at 7:30am and 12:30pm. I took the valtrex today at 220pm, and it says the next dose 12 hours later. I also took one erythrocin today as well. My heart has been racing, I do not know if it is because of the meds or that I am working myself into a frenzy. Is it safe to take all these meds? Should I take the valtrex today at 220am?
