... to take cefalexin 500mg for knee pain due to infection. will it trigger an asthma attack because amoxillin does it in her case?
I would be concerned as amoxillin is a penicillin and the warnings for cefalexin says
Do not take Cefalexin Capsules if you:
•Are allergic (hypersensitive) to cefalexin, other cephalosporins (similar antibiotics) or penicillin group of antibiotics, or to any of the ingredients in the product
Please call her doctor and discuss this before she starts this medication.
