I was prescribed these tablets Tuesday, 26th August. Overnight, I felt so unwell I could barely walk to work. My whole body ached, I had headaches, felt dizzy (light headed mostly). I had a terrible attack of my diverticulitis (worse of the lot). I was off my food and felt as if the whole world was against me! It was awful.
I was advised to take time off and drink lots of water. I had already completed two courses of Trimethoprim which did not clear the urine infection so I persevered! I am feeling better now, have two more tablets to take then I would have completed the full course. Admittedly, the urine infection sysmptoms seem to have subsided so I am hopeful that the Cefalexin is working positively. I wish someone had warned me before I started the course of medication - I would have been better prepared for the awful side effects!
