this is what is says on my antibiotic bottle. im taking bactrim for my bronchitis - which by the way works WONDERS, I've only taken one pill so far and already feel amazing! - but just curious if anyone knows why I need to avoid the sunlight? What will happen? And prolonged meaning what... a walk around the neighborhood with the kids or all day at the beach?
"Avoid exposure to sunlight or tanning beds. This medication can make you sunburn more easily. Wear protective clothing and use sunscreen (SPF 30 or higher) when you are outdoors."
I think a walk around the neighborhood would be ok - Just protect yourself! Glad you're feeling better!
