Keflex (Cephalexin) Addiction & Abuse
However, there are a few risks associated with Keflex. If Keflex is used too long or too often, it could cause a yeast infection or oral thrush. Keflex shouldn’t be used with narcotic pain medicines because it could cause certain gastrointestinal symptoms to get worse. When someone is prescribed Keflex, they should take it exactly as instructed. No one should take someone else’s prescription for Keflex because it can be harmful.
Keflex is frequently used by patients who are allergic to penicillin. Penicillin is often the first-line of treatment for respiratory tract infections, for example. In a patient who can’t tolerate penicillin, Keflex works well as an alternative. Keflex is a pregnancy category B drug in the U.S., indicating that there is no evidence of harm when it’s used by pregnant women or during breastfeeding.
