What If I Take an Overdose?People who take too much Keflex may have overdose symptoms that could include but are not limited to:
How Should Keflex Be Stored?Keflex capsules should be stored at room temperature. The oral suspension (liquid) should be refrigerated once it is in liquid form. The oral suspension expires 14 days after being prepared and should be discarded accordingly. Keflex products should be kept protected from light, moisture, and excessive heat.
What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?If you do not take your Keflex as scheduled, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the one you forgot and take your next dose instead. Never take a double dose.
