Before I started the medication I was starting to cough up a little, but now it's becoming worse. I did read that antibiotics for pneumonia or TB can cause cough ...

    At the end of my 10 day treatment time on Cephalexin 500 mg, I experience diarrhea, so I took acidophilus three times a day, and it went away.

    I am a young 66 years old who had ADD, however under control w/20M of Adderyl. I went to doctor for toe infection who administered Cephalexin 250mg 4 times daily. First day, felt spacy like I was out of body or something. I had a hard time concentrating or remembering as I went to store and left something cooking on my stove. Never do I do that. I had increased sleeplessness and my joints hurt. I had 5 days of diaheria, extreme thirst with legergy. I am a firm believer that antibiotics are toxic...make me sicker.

    My review should have read have ADD/ADHD instead of had ADD. In summation mixing the two meds is not good for me.
