Keflex Withdrawal and Detox
Because Keflex is considered to be non-addictive, there is little chance of becoming reliant upon Keflex. Withdrawal symptoms are associated with substance use disorders, which Keflex is typically not representative of. If you or someone you know thinks they may be experiencing withdrawal from cephalexin, contact a medical provider immediately. Finishing a prescribed round of cephalexin should not cause withdrawal symptoms to appear.
While Keflex withdrawal is incredibly uncommon, it is important to know the symptoms of withdrawal. The most common signs of withdrawal from prescription medications like Keflex include agitation, anxiety, insomnia, muscle aches, fatigue, and headaches.
After around twenty-four hours, the chemical process of detoxification begins. As your body naturally purifies itself and rids the body of the toxins, you may experience very unpleasant symptoms. Common symptoms during detoxification include diarrhea, vomiting, chills, sweating, rapid heartbeat, dilated pupils. It should be noted that the symptoms associated with early withdrawal can also be present during the detoxification stage.
