What is Keflex Used for?

Keflex (Cephalexin) is a prescription medication used to treat infections caused by bacteria, including upper respiratory infections, ear infections, skin infections, urinary tract infections and bone infections. The active substance in Keflex is Cephalexin. Cephalexin belongs to the class of drugs called Cephalosporins (1st generation). It works by binding to one or more of the penicillin-binding proteins, which inhibits the synthesis of bacterial cell walls. By this action, Keflex stops the growth of the bacteria in your body. However, Keflex will not work for viral infections (such as common cold, flu).

Are there any Precautions and Drug Interactions for Keflex?

Before using the Keflex capsule, you should tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic (hypersensitive) to Cephalexin, other cephalosporins or any of the other ingredients. An allergic reaction may include rash, itching, difficulty breathing or swelling of the face, lips, throat or tongue. You should continue to take this medication until the full prescribed amount is finished, even if symptoms disappear after a few days. Stopping the medication too early may allow bacteria to continue to grow, resulting in a return of the infection. Tell your doctor if your condition persists or worsens. It would be best to take Cephalexin precisely as prescribed by your doctor. Follow all directions on your prescription label and read all medication guides or instruction sheets. Do not use Cephalexin to treat any condition that your doctor has not checked.

You should not use Keflex and inform your doctor about your medical history, especially if you have or have had:
• Allergic reaction to Keflex capsule and other cephalosporins;
• Kidney disease;
• Liver disease;
• Stomach/intestinal disease (such as colitis);

You should tell your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. This medication can only be used in pregnancy if it is needed or prescribed by your doctor. This medication passes into breast milk. Consult your doctor before breastfeeding.

Tell your doctor about all the medications you use, including prescriptions, over-the-counter medications, herbal products, and vitamin supplements to prevent drug interactions, which might be fatal to your health. This drug interaction may make your drug less effective, cause adverse effects, or potentiate other drugs' action. The following are some examples of drugs that may interact with Keflex capsules (Cephalexin):
• Any other antibiotics (e.g., gentamicin, tobramycin, cefuroxime);
