I am taking one of each twice a day?
This question has also been asked and answered here: Is it a problem to switch to Amoxicilin while taking Cephalexin?
Yes, there is no interactions between amoxicillin and cephalexin so you can them together, if prescribed by your Doctor or Dentist.
There is however a therapeutic duplication, which is the use of more than one medicine from the same drug category or therapeutic class to treat the same condition. This could be intentional by the prescriber in cases where drugs with similar actions are used together for demonstrated therapeutic benefit. It can also be unintentional in cases where a patient has been treated by more than one prescriber and can have potentially adverse consequences.
yes I apologize for answering this late also I can tell you that with my immune problem I have taken Cephalexin 500mg and Amoxicillin 500mg together, the only problem I encountered was my stomach other than that the two drugs together did not cause me any problems. two others that work well are also Amoxicillin and a booster dose of Augmentin XR this has worked well for me, it is my sincere hope that you start to improve. best wishes caringsonbj (Billy)
THERis no problem taking the two of these drugs together... unless you have an allergy, of course, to either one of them
I will alert you that whenever you take two antibiotics together, there is always the chance of wiping out the good bacteria out in the GI system. So it might be a good thing to take probiotics or yogurt with live cultures while on these... good luck pup
