Allergic to penicillin so was given Keflex. Allergic to this as well. Nausea, diarrhea, confusion, severe cramping, itchy. So far it has not cleared up my abscessed tooth. It has however given me a UTI. I don't recommend this medicine! Also it smells like rotten eggs, which is awful to have to take when you are already nauseous!

I got this prescribed from the free clinic. I thought I had herpes. I think I have psorasis *sp. It made the red spots on my hand go away that are only relieved by hot water. Also cleared up the spots on my penis. Within 4 days they were almost completely gone. As soon as I stopped taking it,within a month the lesions reoccured. Hopefully,I get another prescription. I did have sickness while taking it,but after 3 days my body adjusted. I had some loss of appetite, minor headaches. However,making my hands stop itching,and clearing up my genitals far outweighed the nausea.

This drug is a life saver for me. I get side effects from almost every drug I ever take but Keflex caused no problems at all. I am very happy to find this drug!

Taken to prevent infection in breast reconstruction after breast cancer. I developed a very bad headache, severe constipation, made worse by pain meds. I stopped the Keflex and pain meds but my normal bowels have not functioned since. I still have very little appetite, am very bloated, hope this passes soon.

I was prescribed this medication for an infected wisdom tooth that has to be removed. It was necessary to take an antibiotic to get rid of the infection in my tooth, take down the swelling and pain in my jawbone, and as per dentists advice , was necessary for many reasons so that the condition would not get worse. I was in much pain and did not feel good at all,which was a period of 3 or 4 days.I noticed as soon as I had taken the first tablet that it started to act on relieving the pain,swelling and jawbone trouble. I am very happy and grateful with the remarkable results that the keflex has given me. As for the side effects, they were few, being indigestion, some constipation, all until I had adjusted to the medication. I had been lucky, and hope that anyone needing to take an antibiotic for any reason has good luck too, and no health problems with it.
