Can Bactrim 100mg x 2 a day for 5 days

Can Bactrim 100mg x 2 a day for 5 days cure a kidney infection? Yesterday when I went to my doctor for a UTI my back/flanks didnt hurt at all, today when I woke up and went to get my bactrim filled that he prescribed my flanks hurt. I think over night the bacteria may have traveled up to my kidneys. I read that bactirm isnt a preferred treatment for kidney infection only UTI, but the pharmacist said she thinks it would he ok for a kidney infection if it was early. Should I take the course of Bactrim and see what happens?

I have been feeling like a UTI. My dr prescribed bactrim. I was afraid to take it. I decided to take Amoxicillin I have 13 pills at 875mg two times a day. I decided to take one today but now I don t know if it was a good idea. Should I continue or is it safe to stop after one pill, or should I continue and how many days. I m due for next dose tonight.

My boyfriend was prescribed Bactrim 400mg 2x daily. After 4 days with no complication, this evening he had hives, rash, sore throat and a fever of 101.3-101.7. He is no longer taking medicine and his PCP is unavailable. He has chills and sweats and joint pain. I ve been monitoring fever with alternate doses of Tylenol and Ibuprofen. Also one dose of Benedetto. Not sure what else to do.
