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

was prescribe medication for 10 days 2 tabs. Having headaches, runny nose, sinus congestion, and sneezing. The symptoms cleared up on the 7th day of taking the meds. All fine now. Many side effects agressive, argumentative, slurred speech, blurry vision, changes in stool and the yeast infection but thats to be expected with any antibiotic.

Comment:
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.
