I started having one swollen leg,which my Doctor saw and wasn't concerned. then all of a sudden it grew huge as well as did the other one. My doctor prescribed cephalexin 500 mg for 7 days........it made me really sick, but one leg went back to normal.
Then he prescribed Dicloxacillin sodium 250 mg 4 times a day for 7 days. It is terrible Brain Fog, blurred vision and dizzy and sick. I am in the 5 th day, Some improvement in the leg but not much its swollen clear up to my waist..
He put me off over the weekend and said keep taking it........I don't know if I should continue taking this if that's what he advises or not......I am so sick of feeling sick.
I have had 4 major surgeries including a Hip replacement on that Hip and I wonder if its Lymphedema instead. Any Input??

Those can be normal side effects of this medication, according to FDA reports, since it is a potent antibiotic. You may also experience headache, dry mouth, non-allergic skin rash, and diarrhea.

It is always best to follow your doctor's instructions.

How are you doing, now? Has there been any change?
