About Cephalexin Monohydrate

Cephalexin fights bacteria by keeping them from growing. Cephalexin, like other antibiotics, will not treat viral infections, including common colds and the flu, or fungal infections.

It is important to follow your doctor's and pharmacist's instructions about how to take cephalexin. Make sure you take all the medicine so that the infection will not come back.

Cephalexin comes in tablet, capsule, and liquid forms that you may take with or without food. Take cephalexin tablets and capsules whole, with a full glass of water. Store tablets and capsules at room temperature. Keep liquid cephalexin in the refrigerator and throw it away after 14 days.

If you miss a dose of cephalexin, take it as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose of cephalexin, skip the missed dose. Take your next dose of cephalexin at the next scheduled time.
