Do not use Keflex if you are allergic to cephalexin, or to similar antibiotics, such as Ceclor, Ceftin, Cefzil, Duricef, Fortaz, Omnicef, Spectracef, Suprax, and others.
Before using Keflex, tell your doctor if you are allergic to any drugs (especially penicillins), or if you have kidney or liver disease, a stomach or intestinal disorder such as colitis, diabetes, or if you are malnourished.
Take this medication for the entire length of time prescribed by your doctor. Your symptoms may get better before the infection is completely treated. Keflex will not treat a viral infection such as the common cold or flu.
Get emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of an allergic reaction: hives; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat. Call your doctor at once if you have any of these serious side effects:
diarrhea that is watery or bloody;
fever, sore throat, and headache with a severe blistering, peeling, and red skin rash;
pale or yellowed skin, dark colored urine, fever, confusion or weakness;

Take Keflex with a full glass of water.
Dissolve the Keflex dispersible tablet in a small amount of water, about 2 teaspoonfuls. Stir this mixture and drink all of it right away. To make sure you get the entire dose, add a little more water to the same glass, swirl gently and drink right away. Do not swallow or chew a dispersible tablet.
Shake the oral suspension (liquid) well just before you measure a dose. To be sure you get the correct dose, measure the liquid with a marked measuring spoon or medicine cup, not with a regular table spoon. If you do not have a dose-measuring device, ask your pharmacist for one. Take Keflex for the entire length of time prescribed by your doctor. Your symptoms may get better before the infection is completely treated. Keflex will not treat a viral infection such as the common cold or flu.
This medication can cause you to have unusual results with certain medical tests. Tell any doctor who treats you that you are using Keflex.
Store the tablets and capsules at room temperature away from moisture and heat. Store the liquid medicine in the refrigerator. Throw away any unused medication after 14 days.
I am very thankful to them; for having delivered my medication on time, even during the COVID. I would have run short of my medication, had they not been as a rescuer.
With so many fake websites and scams, I am fortunate to have been dealing with a genuine and trusted online pharmacy. Have been associated with them for years and have never had an issue.
A very trusted and reliable source for getting prescription medication. The shipping is quick and they keep me updated constantly about the status of the package. I am happy doing business with them.
I needed to get my script filled, so I called the customer support team. They were very helpful, they helped me set up an account and placed my order correctly. I did receive my package within the committed time, very good service overall.
For the last 6 years, I have been getting my medications from them, they have always done a wonderful job in getting my orders correct and delivering them quickly. I am very satisfied as a customer from their service.
I was a bit skeptical about placing my first order with them; as the medications were being shipped from a different country. But once I received my order, I was very happy with the quality and the pricing of the drugs. I will continue to refill ...
