my doctor has me on a bunch of prescriptions and I am concerned that taking the 500 mg of keflex and 500 mg of cippro twice daily may not be good for my health. I am concerned how they may interact with my other medications.
Interactions between your selected drugs
No results found - however, this does not necessarily mean no interactions exist. ALWAYS consult with your doctor or pharmacist.

ciprofloxacin interacts with more than 300 other drugs.

Interactions between your selected drugs and food
ciprofloxacin ↔ food
Applies to: ciprofloxacin
Do not take ciprofloxacin with dairy products such as milk or yogurt, or with calcium-fortified juice. You may eat or drink dairy products or calcium-fortified juice with a regular meal, but do not use them alone when taking ciprofloxacin. They could make the medication less effective. Certain medications should be taken at least 2 hours after or 6 hours before you take ciprofloxacin. This includes didanosine (Videx) chewable/buffered tablets or powder; sucralfate (Carafate); antacids that contain calcium, magnesium or aluminum (such as Tums or Rolaids); or vitamin or mineral supplements that contain calcium, iron, or zinc.
Give me the list of medications you are on and I will do an interaction check, just like this one.
