Cephalexin Swelling 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.

Tue, 30 Nov 2010
After being put on this for Bladder Infection..I experience lip Swelling about 3 days in. It was not terrible but uncomfortable. I had NO other signs of anything else. If you pulled up and down my lips you could also see some red. I stopped taking after 6 days. I wrote off the lips too being at the beach and not enough water. I have a call in to the Dr. Now to relieve current lip situation. I'm hoping simple Benadryl. We shall see.
