    Bactrim ds is also a diuretic I think they way I am reading it that is what I understand. I noticed I would lose about 5 lbs and as soon as the next day or so if I do not take it you gain it back. It is water weight I am sure because I see it in my legs and ankles. Usually with a diuretic you are tired! So I am thinking does this have something to do with taking water off my heart??? Possibly helping my kidneys, in one days time it would continue helping if it was working on an infection???

    I dont know this is what I am thinking though

    Does that make any sense?
    It felt like my heart was working right and giving more energy. Never had heart trouble so I do not know.

    Thanks
    keep it coming the dialogue is great
