Brief Answer:
Yes,side effect of Bactrim

Detailed Answer:

According to your saying, you have been using Bactrim to treat swelling of the legs or joints is reported as side effect of using Bactrim, that's why your doctors told you not to use it.

Do not worry, although the majority of patients do not experience any side effects; some others, like you might face various bad impacts.

It is good that you did not go through other major concerns threatening your life.

Hope it helped!

You can write to me other concerns you might have.
