I have been taking this drug now for three days 500mg twice a day. I have noticed that my blood pressure is running higher than normal 145/85. I do take BP meds. I wonder if this med is causing this.
Can cephalexin raise your blood pressure?

I have been on Keflex for 5 days (500mg ever 6 hours) and my blood pressure is running 193/115. Yesterday it was 205/ 120. The ER was able to get it down to 165/105. I have never had a problem with my blood pressure before.
Looking into my Lexicomp Drug Interaction Handbook 21th addition... there are no indications that it raises blood pressure..however..that does not rule out a paridoxatol reaction
