My girlfriend keeps throwing up to the point where she is just dry heaving. She has a history of being illergic to most antibiotics. She is recently taking sulfameth/trimethoprim for a sinus infection and I am not sure if that could be the reason as to why she continues to throw up or not. She has not eaten anything today and barely ate a thing yesterday, so I know it can t be food poisoning. What s wrong with her?

Hello, I was prescribed Sulfameth/trimethoprim 800/160 tabs for a swollen lymph node or cyst in the back of my neck. I was reading all of the side effects and it is making me think twice about taking it. I was told to stay out of the sun which also gives me concern. I have taken antibiotics in the past and have not had any side effects. I am not aware of any allergies that I have. For some reason I am hesitant to take this one.
