What You Need to Know About Taking Keflex

General Dosage Information

Considerations for people taking Keflex include the following:
 
  • The medication comes as a capsule or oral suspension (liquid).
  • Keflex should be taken at the same time each day to maintain an even level of the drug in your system.
  • It can be taken with or without food. If it upsets your stomach, taking your Keflex dosage with food may help.
  • Drink a full glass of water with each dose.
  • For Keflex to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed.
  • Make sure that you complete your entire prescription of Keflex, even if you start feeling better. This will ensure that the infection is completely treated.
  • Never take outdated Keflex. Taking any outdated medication may cause serious problems because the intended effects often change after the medicine expires.
  • If you are unsure about anything related to dosing with Keflex, talk to your doctor or pharmacist. Do not stop taking Keflex without first discussing it with your healthcare provider.
