If you are asking if it is the same active ingrediant. Then yes, Cephalexin is a human drug.

If it is the same dosage and formulation. I don't know if you could provide us with more information that could help.

Did the doc give you the pills himself or a prescription?

Yep - that is the same as what a pharmacy would stock.

I wouldn't recommend using them in humans though for various reasons.
