  • I had a sinus cyst removed and put on cephalexin. I started having stomach cramps and pain after a few days. and also bowels did not move. I have been frequently slightly dizzy and for a couple days have had some problems with concentration. I am also a bit shaky in the morning after eating breakfast.

    Can you safely take Keflex after Botox injections? Can it reduce the time of botox in your system by taking Keflex 500mg twice a day for 7 days especially if you received Dysport (botox) in the last week of starting Keflex.
