My doctor prescribed this for me to clear up a bacterial infection post-op. My knee feels better, but I have been soooo tired! Is this normal? I have read all of the reviews and haven't seen anyone else with this problem.

This was prescribed for my 6 year old daughter. After 2 days of treatment her personality changed, becoming very mean and doing stange things, not her normal behavior. I stopped the medication immediately. Is this a side effect?

I have had a UTI in which CIPRO was not effective anymore. Please note I get UTI's about once a year. My urologist put me KEFLEX which in working and has gotten rid of the UTI. The only side effect I had was two days of diarrhea on start of medication in which I took Immodium A-D for and now all is well in the land of oz. :)

I was on Keflex for a tooth infection. I was told that I may have a reaction due to the fact that I am allergic to Penicillin but it is rare. I got hives as well as some other serious side affects. Burning skin etc.

I was prescribed 500mg 2xdaily for 10 days for a supposed sinus infection. I made it to day 4. Had horrible headaches from Day 1, lost appetite, gas, vivid dreams, and my arms and legs looked like they got beat up. If i even touched something, i bruised after starting this medication. I had taken this previously, 4x a day, and didn't have a problem. Not the same with this time.

Had minor surgery and was prescribed this medication to take. Took 1 dose and had a severe allergic reaction. My face, throat and chest was bright red and burned like a sunbuern. My Doctor said to stop taking ASAP and switched me to the Z-pack. Have to take benadryl to counter act this medicine
