Can extreme stomach cramps while on Keflex be treated at home?

I have been hospitalized for the last eleven days with sepsis and cellulitis and being treated with IV Keflex antibiotics in hospital and now oral version at home. Today I have started having very severe stomach cramps without diahrea. Also am on blood thinner to get rid of a blood clot that formed at the area of my PICC line. Should I return to the ER for treatment or is there something I can do to offset the extreme stomach cramping her at home

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Take over the counter medication for diarrhea such as Imodium. Take probiotic supplements. Use Acetaminophen for stomach pain. If you don't get better go to the emergency room.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Hi, my daughter is 4.5 years old, this past few moths she has a very funny smell in her mouth, she gets stomach cramps and headaches very often, sometimes with nausea. She loves eating fruit and cereal but is constipated many days. She started a daycare playschool group 5 months back and since then had tonsilits and gastru twice. I am extremely concerned.

Hi! Started with stomach cramps on Sunday, they continued through the evening and into Monday accompanied with loose bowels starting around 8 Sunday evening. Since then the cramps have gone away and I have been hungry but when I eat I can’t eat too much because I then feel nauseous. Home long can’t i expect this to last?
