What happens if I miss a dose?

Take the missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and take the medicine at your next regularly scheduled time. Do not take extra medicine to make up the missed dose.

What happens if I overdose?

Seek emergency medical attention if you think you have used too much of this medicine.

Overdose symptoms may include nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, diarrhea, and blood in your urine.

What should I avoid while taking cephalexin?

Antibiotic medicines can cause diarrhea, which may be a sign of a new infection. If you have diarrhea that is watery or has blood in it, call your doctor. Do not use any medicine to stop the diarrhea unless your doctor has told you to.

What are the possible side effects of cephalexin?

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;
*

seizure (convulsions);
*

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;
*

easy bruising or bleeding, unusual weakness;
*

confusion, agitation, hallucinations (seeing things that are not there); or
*

urinating less than usual or not at all.

Less serious side effects may include:

*

mild nausea, vomiting, diarrhea;
*

dizziness, tired feeling;
*

joint pain; or
*

vaginal itching or discharge.

This is not a complete list of side effects and others may occur. Tell your doctor about any unusual or bothersome side effect.

What other drugs will affect cephalexin?

Before using cephalexin, tell your doctor if you are using any of the following drugs:

*

a blood thinner such as warfarin (Coumadin);
*

meftormin (Fortamet, Glucophage, Riomet, Actoplus, Avandamet, Metaglip); or
*

probenecid (Benemid).

This list is not complete and there may be other drugs that can interact with cephalexin. Tell your doctor about all the prescription and over-the-counter medications you use. This includes vitamins, minerals, herbal products, and drugs prescribed by other doctors. Do not start using a new medication without telling your doctor.
