Cephalexin - Overview
Cephalexin, marketed under the brand names Keflex and Daxbia, is a type of antibiotic used in the treatment of infections that are thought to be caused by bacteria susceptible to the medication. Through Push Health, people who might need a cephalexin prescription can connect with a licensed medical provider in their area and, if appropriate and safe, get cephalexin prescribed and made available at a local pharmacy.
What Is Cephalexin Used For?
Cephalexin is a type of antibiotic that belongs to a class of medications known as cephalosporins. Cephalexin, like cefdinir, cefixime, cefpodoxime, cefuroxime and other cephalosporins, is thought to inhibit the synthesis of cell walls in bacteria, leading to its bactericidal effect. Cephalexin is generally indicated for the treatment of specific types of respiratory tract infections, otitis media, skin infections, bone infections, and urinary tract infections when they are thought to be caused by strains of microorganisms susceptible to cephalexin.
Cephalexin - Dosage and Cost
Cephalexin is typically found as a white crystalline solid that has low solubility in water at room temperature. After oral administration, cephalexin is rapidly absorbed and measurable levels are observed at six hours. Cephalexin is largely excreted in the urine and much of the medication is excreted unchanged within eight hours. The medication comes in different doses such as cephalexin 500 mg tablets and cephalexin 250 mg tablets. Cephalexin is administered orally only. In most cases, cephalexin can be taken with or without food. Due to antibiotic resistance, advanced cephalosporins such as cefdinir are sometimes necessary for treating infections that do not respond to cephalexin. Cephalexin is an affordable medication and costs under thirty cents per pill at many pharmacies. Some insurance plans may also cover the cost of generic cephalexin at a pharmacy. For people who have trouble affording the cost of cephalexin, it is sometimes possible to find cephalexin coupons online.
Can I Buy Cephalexin Online?
Generic cephalexin and the branded version of cephalexin are prescription medications. As a result, cephalexin OTC is not available and one cannot simply buy cephalexin online in the United States as it requires a prescription from a licensed medical provider. People who might need a cephalexin medication prescription can use Push Health to connect with a local provider who can prescribe cephalexin tablets, including cephalexin 500 mg, when appropriate to do so.
Cephalexin - Side Effects
Generic cephalexin can cause side effects and all questions and concerns about potential side effects should be discussed with one's medical provider and pharmacist before using the medication. Common side effects associated with cephalexin use include diarrhea, fatigue, nausea, dizziness, and stomach upset. There has been a case report of hemolytic anemia after cephalexin use. Anyone with a hypersensitivity to cephalexin or similar medications should avoid using cephalexin. Cephalexin and alcohol should not be used together.
