  • CEFALEXIN 125mg/5ml

How do I take/use this medicine?

Take Cefalexin exactly as directed by your doctor. Do not take more or less than instructed by your doctor.

Take Cefalexin at regular intervals as instructed. Do not skip any doses. Continue to take it even when you feel better. You must complete the entire course of antibiotic. If you don't, the infection will not clear completely.

You may take Cefalexin with or without food. You may take it with food to reduce any stomach discomfort that Cefalexin may cause.

If you have been given tablets or capsules, swallow it whole.

If you have been given an oral suspension, shake the bottle well before you take it to ensure that the liquid is evenly mixed. Use the measuring spoon or cup provided to measure your dose.

What should I take note of while using/taking this medicine?

Inform your doctor if you have kidney or bowel disease, especially colitis (inflammation of the colon).

This medicine may not be suitable for you if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Discuss this with your doctor.

When should I not use this medicine?

Alert your doctor if you have a history of allergic reactions (rash, breathlessness, swollen mouth or eyes) to similar antibiotics such as cefaclor, cefuroxime, cefixime, ceftibuten or any other cephalosporin antibiotics.

Alert your doctor if you are allergic to penicillin antibiotics, for example, amoxicillin, ampicillin and cloxacillin. Penicillins are related to cephalosporins and if you are allergic to one, you may be allergic to the other too.

Are there any restrictions on the type of food I can take?

Avoid alcohol.

Why do I need this medicine?

Cefalexin is an antibiotic. It is used to treat certain bacterial infections of the nose, throat, chest, ears, skin, bones, genitals or bladder.

Cefalexin can also be used to prevent infection when you undergo certain dental procedures.

Cefalexin belongs to a group of antibiotics called the cephalosporins.

What side effects could I experience?

You may have diarrhoea, nausea, stomach discomfort and headache while being treated with Cefalexin. These side effects are usually mild and should get better with rest. You may choose to take Cefalexin with food to reduce the nausea and stomach discomfort. If you have diarrhoea, drink lots of water to replace the fluids lost. However, if you have severe diarrhoea or diarrhoea with severe stomach cramps or bloody stools, alert your doctor.

If you develop rashes, breathlessness, swollen mouth or eyes, stop the medicine and inform your doctor quickly. These could be signs of an allergic reaction.

How should I store this medicine?

Store in a cool, dry place away from the reach of children.

Refrigerate the oral suspension (between 2-8°C) once you have mixed the powder with water. Do not freeze it otherwise it will become less effective. Throw away any unused portion after 14 days.

Medicines must not be used past the expiry date.

Can I take/use this with other medicines?

Do not take Cefalexin together with antacids because antacids could reduce the effectiveness of the antibiotic. Antacids are not likely to relieve the stomach discomfort that Cefalexin may cause. If you must take antacids, take between meals at least 2 hours before or 2 hours after you have taken Cefalexin.

Alert your doctor if you are taking warfarin or probenecid.

Always inform your doctor and pharmacist if you are taking any other medicines, including herbal medicines and medicines that you buy without a prescription.
