From this study (3 days ago):
has put me on Keflex 500mg 1x a day for chronic uti's. Am concerned about long term use.
From this study (3 weeks ago):
White skin pigmentation in small freckle sizes
From this study (1 month ago):
I have had to use a foley indwelling catheter for nearly 35 years and NEVER have I had a problem with it spontaneously leaking around it practically overnight. One day I was fine like all the days and weeks and years prior... then the next day I began to leak around the catheter and it has continued for over a week now. Yes, there can be problems with indwelling catheters but this is far from normal for me and the ONLY thing that has changed in my life is beginning to take the antibiotic Keflex for a potential UTI. It was shortly after this that my symptoms began and have continued. I can't get in to see my urologist for over a month but, on the phone, he completely dismisses the possibility of Keflex and my problem being related. I simply can't throw out the possibility because I do not believe in coincidences and it is just too bizarre (for me).
