With bactrim you have to stay out of the sun or if you do go out smear yourself with SPF 50. Bactrim makes you very sensitive to the sun. I don't take Bactrim as I developed an allergy to sulfa, but when I did take it, I spent no more than 15 minutes in the LA sun and was burned raw. People with HIV should stay out of the sun anyway as the virus for some reason makes us sensitive to sun exposure. Have to admit, I spend hours at the weekend in the sun working in my garden, but then I'm sickly for a few days. Oh well, life is about compromises and I would rather be sick for a few days than miss tending my garden.

Glad to hear you are going to monitor your counts and that you are at least taking Bactrim. Taking the meds is not pleasant and all of them have nasty side effects. Sustiva causes nigtmares, Videx slowly eats away at your pancreas, and PI's slowly destroy your liver. Still all in all it is a lot better than dying in your own shit and vomit in horrible pain like people used to do in the 80's when I was first diagnosed.

Cheers up, mate
