Cephalexin Review
| La Donna
My son's doctor prescribed Cephalexin (instead of Amoxicllin) when his swollen gland under his jaw returned and it had NO effect at all. We are scheduled to see the doctor again tomorrow. At least with the Amoxicillan, the lump went down half way.....

Cephalexin Review
| ellen
found macrodantin great as suffered with cystitis for years. told then to go off it as not good to be on for long term. Now I'm having to take Keflex almost every month so not happy at all. Haven't got a clue what to do.
