In brief: Side effects rare

Cephalexin is an antibiotic and typically has few side effects.
If you are allergic, you may develop swelling, difficulty breathing or a rash. Otherwise, stomach upset is a rare side effect. Yeast infections are common after any antibiotic.

Hi. I am not familiar with the main side effects of cephalexin, but I do believe there needs to be cautions in select cases.
