I seem to be having a side effect of acid reflux after taking 500 mg of cephalexin and it is especially bad when I lie down at night. I do not suffer from heart burn as a rule. One time when I was in my 20's I actually damaged my esophagus from an antibiotic as I didn't drink enough water with it. I am nervous that I may be doing damage again. Is this a common side effect? I had a skin surgery on my leg that didn't heal as well on one side and the dermatologist thought in case it was infected I should take this Keflex.
I'd like to stop taking it after 4 days as it's so uncomfortable. Are there foods or drink I should avoid? Will it really be bad if stop taking it today?
