I was diagnosed with a UTI prior to my surgery but wasn't really having any symptoms. After taking Bactrim for 7 days I am now having a bad burning sensation and the feeling of needing to urinate but can't. Can Bactrim cause a bladder infection if you were taking it and not having symptoms previously?
MConn1456; No Bactrim would not have caused it. but sometimes they don't keep you on it long enough on some UTI you should call your doctor as soon as you can to get started on more or something new before it gets any worse. remember it is Friday now so get that call into your doctor.
