Cephalexin Depression Reviews

Mon, 07 Nov 2011

One more pill to go before I finish my dose of Cephalexin for Cellulitis. First of all, the symptom worsened within the first 24 hours - both the doctors failed to tell me that. It did eventually work and about 48 hours later, the swelling and redness from Cellulitis started to decrease. The side effects were not severe, but, at worst, I experienced nausea, stomach ache, diarrhea, and Depression (followed by the most whacked out dreams). This is not quite the drug from hell but I am very much ready to finish my dose.
