It is apparent from your history that the symptoms you are experiencing are the side efffects of keflex. There is no need to become apprehensive about it. They are self-limiting and would subside once you stop the drug.

Thanks for the query to H.C.M.Forum.
Since , you have mentioned , you are taking KEFLEX ( cephalaxin ) for mouth infection ( clearly not mentioned whether it is glossitis or stomatitis or gum infection or which type of mouth infection).
Keflex may develops gastric upsets as abdominal cramps, nausea, irregular bowel movements.
So please upload complete history of illness , so that proper disease could be diagnosed.
Good luck.
