I recently relocate to a different city. I was taking bactrium,however, I didn't refill my prescription after I ran out. If I start taking them again will I incur any side-effects. I am without a physcian because my job has not start. So I thought I would ask you all.

Rarely are there side-effects associated with resuming Bactrim. If your counts are low, it is probably advisable to get back on this medicine to prevent infection, especially Pneumocystis Pneumonia.
