Please give advice on what more can I use to bring back my menstruation iv been trying to conceive n its difficult. ## Hello Shima! How are you? Has there been any change? How old are you?

Cephalexin Cap 500 Mg Side Effects Hiccups

My husband has been taking this med for a virus. He will eat something small before taking b/c it upset his stomach. Shortly after taking he will get hiccups that will last for awhile.

Using them inappropriately causes the risk of developing antibiotic resistant bacteria. As to the hiccups, it is probably because they can cause some gas in some people, if he is taken it with small amounts of food and gulping a flu...
