    I am on it because I had spine surgery on Tuesday and I guess there is a high risk of infection when your working on the spine. I have been taking this med since Tues. It is tearing up my stomach. do you think I should call the dr for a new med or just wait it out since I only have a day and half left.. Anyone else get these symptoms on this medication.. :confused:

    I've taken Keflex - it's fairly heavy duty. Your doctor likely prescribed it for a good reson.

    Get some probiotics to help replenish your good bacteria (I recommend iflora) - and don't take the Keflex on an empty stomach.

    none of that will do any good until the antibiotics are out of her system..... 3 days after her last dose.

    But...it will be a good idea once she is done with them.

    look up the side effects and do not take on an empty stomach.

    btw I am a brain surgeon, Nascar mechanic and rocket scientist.

    Are you taking it on an empty stomach?

    It's a first generation cephalosporin with similar coverage, though a different mechanism of action, as penicillin.

    They are well established antibiotics, but generally if you take any antibiotic on an empty stomach it will upset it.
