Yes, of course he will feel normal again.
Unfortunately all medicines have side effects but not everyone experiences them. Your husband was unlucky.
Bactrim has an elimination half life of 6 to 12 hours. It usually takes around 5 to 6 half lives for a drug to be completely eliminated from your system. Other factors also affect elimination (age, health, weight, metabolism) but you can expect that your husband should be free of bactrim after about three days.
