Keflex

No Prescription

Keflex is prescribed in the treatment of tonsillitis, skin infections, bronchitis, Urinary Tract Infections, ear infections, and some other types of bacterial infections.
Keflex belongs to a wide class of drugs that are known as antibiotics.

Keflex and Keftab are cephalosporin antibiotics. They are prescribed for bacterial infections of the respiratory tract, the middle ear, the bones, the skin, and the reproductive and urinary systems. Because they are effective for only certain types of bacterial infections, before beginning treatment your doctor may perform tests to identify the organisms causing the infection.

Keflex is available in capsules and an oral suspension form for use in children. Keftab, available only in tablet form, is prescribed exclusively for adults.
