  • The sore throat developed 2-3 days after I started my medication and I have lost my voice completely. It is not especially painful but I say "moderate" because of my loss of voice.

    I I have histiry of mental health problems but was in remission, been doing well for several years and not had a major depressuve episode in 10 years. I was doing yhe best I had been in yeaes before I took cephelexin several weeks ago... it started with extreme sleepiness then nightmares then feelin strange when awake and negative dark thoughts feeling detached from reality depersonalusation feeling confused about my identity confusion to extrene depression. Three weeks on it hasnt gone away..i am sleeping 14 hours a day can barely eat or take care of myself and crying because i woke up to face anther day....i told a doc he denied its the cephelexin but seemed very concerned and writing to my hp about my mental state....while im stayin in bed annd giving up i realy cant go through this again not when i had worked so hard to get where. i was before i took this drug. anyway im writing this incase anyone reads it before taking the cephelexin who has history of anxiety or depressive or other mental disorders.....do NOT take this drug. And of course doctors will deny it is cephalexin. I know it is and wikl be making an official report to the FDA. What i really want to know is how long before i feel normal agsin .doc said if it was cephelexin he would expect somone to feel better 78 to 84 hours after...i believe this drug can trigger mental health crisis is suseptable people that dors not just. go away when you stop taking it.

    I am a 52 y.o. female who was given this medication for a mild sinus infection. Dosage 500mg 2x day for 10 days- which I thought was excessive. I started feeling muscle/joint pain within the 2nd day and dizziness & lethargy. Started meds on Thursday, by Sunday was in constant pain and out of it. I collapsed at work Monday morning with heart palpitations, thinking I had a heart attack, ending up in ER. I have no other health issues but my GP had me seen by a cardiologist - all testing normal and the longer I'm off the drug, the better I feel. Not to mention it also caused a yeast infection that is resistent to OTC medication.

    My 19 year old daughter is experiencing an exacerbation of psychiatric symptoms of depression, anxiety, possible paranoia and started taking cephalexin for an ecoli kidney infection. The problems predate the cephalexin with her FASD but could the cephalexin be a factor in this crisis?
