  • Keflex linked to coughing blood?
    I was put on a week-long course of cephalexin/Keflex for an upper respiratory infection. It's been 5 days and I'm still coughing up blood. 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 coughing up blood, but I wasn't sure about Keflex.
  • Formoteral fumarate inhalation powder
    I have been using this drug since 2004. The only one that gives me near immediate relief. I have tried nearly every drug for this condition, and this is the only one that is easy to use, at home and away. I also follow up with azthmanex, which is a steroid, and using for a year
  • A life of depression and fatigue (1 response)
    1) Family history of depression, 2) Diagnosed depression 1964-not treated until 1973, 3) Worked in medical field 35 years, 4) Emergency on-call 24/7, 5) Hospital 15 times major depression, 6) Tried nearly all MAOI, TCA, SSRI, SNRI, and ECT. 7) 100% Disability in 1998 for depression. Now at age 70 I have dysthymia, chronic fatigue, COPD, and PTSD. My recommendation to younger people - do not over stress,
    do not smoke, avoid horrific or traumatic situations and try to find some enjoyment in life. If you have symptoms like mine seek early treatment put balance in your life. The often heard recommendations - get plenty of sleep, eat properly, learn to relax and avoid bad habits should not be ignored, they are critical to good physical and mental health.

  • Achilles tendon tear
    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 also woke up with a Achilles ligament tear, with a bulge in the tendon, not a rupture. No changes in my daily routine, in regards to exercise, just swimming and walking.
