I have been on Cephalexin capsules 500 mg. for the last seven days since coming out of hospital being treated for Diverticulitis. I am feeling okay apart from my mouth is very red and feels odd and seem to be getting ulcerated. Inside my lips feel puffy a bit but have not swollen up massively. I intend to go to doctor tomorrow but was reading the pamphlet side effects in the capsule box is making me concerned about how serious this is. Will I be alright to wait till tomorrow until I see my GP - I have had tonight,s tablet. Thanking you in anticipation, Cheryl
JA: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?
Customer: I am on Karvea 150g for blood pressure
, and Nexium 20g. I would like to take a Diazepam (Valium) tonight which I take when I get stressed - would that be ok? I am allergic to Coversyl, and another antibiotic which I can't remember the name of at present.- I was put on a course of 3 different antibiotics in hospital interveinously, then given Cephalexin tablets to take for 10 days - I have 3 days left to go.

JA: OK. To minimize me, please click the down arrow at the top right corner of this box.
Customer: Why minimize, it just disappears
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: No, don't think so. Have some Reflux but that is why I take Nexium.
