Cefazolin Side Effects

Possible Side Effects

For most newer medications, the prescribing information provides highly detailed information on potential side effects, carefully describing the exact percentages of people who developed each side effect during clinical studies. However, the same is not true for older medications; the prescribing information for most older medications, including cefazolin, includes only vague information about potential side effects, with no exact percentages.
Some of the possible bothersome but not usually dangerous side effects of cefazolin include:
  • Diarrhea
  • Thrush
  • Vomiting
  • Nausea
  • Abdominal (stomach) cramps.

Final Thoughts

You may experience some or none of the side effects listed in this article. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have problems with a medicine that you have never tried.
Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while using cefazolin or if something "just does not seem right." While it may not be related to the medication, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
