I have always had large 500 mg Red gelcaps.

This time they are two tone green gelcaps

Are they the same?

I cannot tell you anything just from color of the capsules, the size, shape and color are completely up to the manufacturer and what they feel like making it look like.

Can you please post back with the imprint from them? I will gladly look it up for you to double check what they contain.

Cephalexin is a commonly antibiotic, used to treat various types of infections.

You may experience side effects such as: nausea, drowsiness, skin rash and diarrhea.

I have a prescription for cephelexin, 500mg for an infected tooth. When I brought it home it is identical to the Cephelexin that my daughter had gotten a few months ago for her black lab. I found that strange but wondered if its normal to have the same antibiotics as a canine!!

Yes they are the same. I had a server infection in my tooth that spread up my face to my eye, cheeks, and upper lip. I was given clindamycin at the ER until I could get to the dentist. Once I was able to get to the dentist (the very next morning) he did a root canal to drain most of the infection out at the source but still had a slightly swollen face from the infection. He prescribed Cephalexin (Keflex) 500mg and said to stop the other antibiotics.
Once I got them filled, they are a dark green capsule, so yes those are the correct ones. I just stoped my other antibiotics and started these today.
