I goofed. What I should have asked was that my 5 year old granddaughter has been on bactrim 200-40/5 for three months and has went from 40pounds to 48 pounds. Could this sudden weight gain be caused by the drug?
Hi there. When my daughter was 4, she was placed on chronic Bactrim and gained quite a few pounds in a short period of time. At that time, her physicians assured me it was not the Bactrim and after several months, started running tests for other causes. In the end, it was determined it was a side effect from chronic Bactrim usage.
