    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.
