Doctors' Answers to "Frequently Asked Questions" - Bactrim

These comments are made for the purpose of discussion and should NOT be used as recommendations for or against therapies or other treatments. An individual patient is always advised to consult their own physician.

Question: Bactrim is being taken by my husband for a bladder infection. He is a 6-7 quad....my question is....does bactrim cause severe leg spasm? He is experiencing a lot of violent leg spasms ever since starting this medication. What could be causing this reaction?

Answer: Not a usual problem; but, I have had one patient who experienced muscle cramps on bactrim. Try a different drug not in the sulfa family. However, many quads will experience muscle spasms, so this may have nothing to do with the Bactrim. Usually treatment with an antispasmodic will help; but, they can be really disabling.
