These antibiotics are cousins, so no he can not take the Amoxicillin.
Cephalexin belongs to the drug class first generation cephalosporins.(Cephalosporins are a class of antibiotics closely related to penicillin).
Amoxicillin belongs to the drug class aminopenicillins.
I suggest you speak to his Dr.-
