I had this too you need water, LOTS and LOTS of water.  Bactrium requires you drink tons of water or you get lower back pain which is kidney pain.  Drink water, drink water, drink water.....drink so much you are peeing 20 times per day.  Kidney stones are hell, avoid them at ALL cost!
The difference between an overnight and a layover is luck!

You might ask your doc if you can reduce the dosage.
It can cause sore kidneys. Not likely a stone, they take fairly long to form.
