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.

diarrhea that is watery or bloody;
fever, sore throat, and headache with a severe blistering, peeling, and red skin rash;

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 wanted to get started with placing an order with them but did not know how to go about it. So I called on the Toll-Free Number and the representative guided me through. He not only set up an account for me but also placed my order.
I was devastated when I found out my insurance was not going to cover my medications. My doctor recommended this website, their pricing is unbeatable and they offer free shipping as well. They would now be my "go-to" pharmacy for all my medications.
I was skeptical at first, placing an order with them. But since I was recommended by a friend I decided to take a risk with a small order. I am so glad I did that, now it's been more than 4 years that I have been getting my medications from them ...
I cannot recommend them enough, communication was prompt and the product exceeded expectations. Already spread the word to mates. Great work, Team.
Authentic product and fast shipping. My package came all the way to Alaska in just 10 days. I am very impressed with their services.
A very reliable company, would continue doing business with them. I am kept updated throughout the process of my order. Arrived in great condition, I will be using them in the future as well.
