I have been on this for a short time and find myself exhausted! So far can't find anything that states this is a side effect. Hope this works.

I also needed to take this drug via PICC line after leaving the hospital. Taking the related drug, Ceclor orally would normally cause me diarrhea. I have had no side effects from this drug and am very satisfied.

I was not aware that I was allergic to this med and have had a red rash around my torso for 6 days and does not seem to be any better. Have seen my Family MD and am taking Hydroxyz tab 25mg to stop the itiching and hives associated with the injecjection of cefazolin iv. have had many types of antibotics but have never had yhis type of reaction. Would recommend another type of pre surgery antibotic if possible
