 Keflex Cephalexin
Cefalexin, also spelled cephalexin, is an antibiotic that can treat a number of bacterial infections. It kills gram-positive and some gram-negative bacteria by disrupting the growth of the bacterial cell wall. Cefalexin is a beta-lactam antibiotic within the class of first-generation cephalosporins.[3] It works similarly to other agents within this class, including intravenous cefazolin, but can be taken by mouth.[4] Cefalexin can treat certain bacterial infections, including those of the mid...

I am concerned about starting keflex because I just finished taking amoxicillin ## Did you find out if it was okay to start taking this? On the drug info page it says to let your doctor know if you are taking any other antibiotics while taking keflex. But technically if you already stopped taking the amoxicililn then you might be safe to take keflex. Sometimes you might be prescribed a different antibiotic so that the bacteria don't build a tolerance in your body to the original one you were on. But it is definitely best to triple check with your doctor about this. Is it for the same infection or for a new infection as when you were first on the amoxicillin ? ## Yes, starting a new one, when you've already finished the other is generally not a problem, unless your doctor has spe... ...

If I do and run out, will my dentist give me more, and will it be effective? ## i would like to know if keflex can be taken by a person who is alergic to sulfa drugs ## Keflex is an antibiotic so it will fight an infection if there is one BUT if not then your tooth ache will not subside.If you have a refill on it then yes you can get more otherwise your doctor/dentist may want to just evaluate your situation and then he can decide whether or not you need something more then just a quick fix ## I would like to know if Keflex will help with a toothache,they are 500mg, how should i take them? ## 1.

Taking Keflex
2 Replies RSS
Has anyone ever been prescribed Keflex propholactically for a period of 90 days (500 mg for 90 days)? In my case, it is being done due to a UTI with the Klebisiella Planticola bacterium. Got the infection 3 times and a 5-day course of 500 mg 3 x a day did not eliminate it. I feel very sick on this drug but we have to get rid of this infection. I have 60 days left and am praying to God, it will kill the bacteria. My doc has also prescribed Ellura (a cranberry tablet) to start taking right away in order to prevent the bacteria from adhering to the bladder wall. ## Hello, Shannie! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problems you've been having. Yes, a long course of antibiotics is usually prescribed to prevent further infection, or to ensure full eradication of the bacteria. The ... ...

Chest pain/keflex
1 Reply RSS
I am getting chest pain while on Keflex I feel that is related, but I don't see it listed as a side effect of the medication ## Hello, DW! How are you? No, that is not a normal side effect to this antibiotic, those would normally be things like nausea, dizziness, non-allergic skin rash, stomach pain and diarrhea. Any time you experience chest pain, you should have it checked out, because there is a risk of being something serious. However, there is a chance that it has just caused you to produce more stomach acid than usual and the chest pain might be due to GERD. Have you ever suffered from heartburn, acid reflux, gastritis or an ulcer? ...

shelf life keflex
1 Reply RSS
shelf life of keflex ## Hi patty, From what I could gather, Keflex (Cephalexin) has a shelf life of 3 years. After this time frame, the medication may not be nearly as effective as it should be, and therefore may not be strong enough to eradicate certain types of infections at this point. If you do have expired antibiotics, it's probably a good idea to visit your doctor for a new script. This way you can at least be certain that it'll work the way it's supposed to and not cause drug resistant bacteria. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Cephalexin Details I hope this helps! ...

I'm allergic to Keflex and Penicillin.. Can I take macrobid? ## Hello, James! How are you? Macrobid contains Nitrofurantoin, so it is a different antibiotic. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache and stomach pain. However, since you are allergic to the others, there is a risk of your also being allergic to the Macrobid. A person who is allergic to one or more medications usually discovers more that they are allergic and have bad reactions to. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

Tolerance to Keflex?
2 Replies RSS
Hi, I have been taking 500mg 4 times per day for 8 weeks for a potential osteomylitis. My concern is if my body is building a tolerance to the Keflex. The infection is still present, and although it has diminished somewhat has not gone away. ## It isn't that you really build a tolerance to an antibiotic, it's that the bacteria can develop antibiotic resistance. However, that shouldn't be a concern after just this short of a time period, that usually occurs with long-term use or repeated use of the same antibiotic. When will your doctor be checking the infection, again? ## Thanks for your response. I saw the microbioligist this past Monday and he changed the antibiotics to another one in the same "family" and I will have to take it for another 28 days at least. He als... ...

Keflex and Pregnancy
2 Replies RSS
I have a niece that is pregnant and is allergic to Penicillin. Her regular doctor gave her Keflex for what they thought was a bacterial skin infection. Her mother, my sister, was just told that Keflex can cause deafness for an unborn infant. Is this true? Is there a website or someplace I can get information from about this? We are very worried. The skin condition ended up not being bacterial after all. Thanks for all info you can give us. ## I was put on it when i was pregnant with my son back in 2005. I was told to take it up to my delivery that it would be fine for the baby. He is going to be 5 in February and he is just fine and has no signs of anything wrong. ## Yes, according to the FDA reports, it has no known harmful effects on the fetus and is considered safe for use during pre... ...
