Keftab

Keftab is a cephalosporin antibiotic used to treat bacterial infections of the respiratory tract, skin, urinary tract, and ear. It is also used to treat some sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Keftab is available in generic form.

What is Keftab?

Keftab (cephalexin) is a cephalosporin antibiotic. Cephalosporin antibiotics are used to treat a wide variety of infections. They work by interfering with the bacterium's ability to make cell walls, which eventually leads to the bacterium's death.

What is the most important information I should know about Keftab?

You should not use Keftab if you are allergic to cephalexin or to similar antibiotics, such as Ceftin, Cefzil, Duricef, Fortaz, Omnicef, Spectracef, Suprax, and others.

Before taking Keftab, tell your doctor if you are allergic to any drugs, or if you have kidney disease, a stomach or intestinal disorder such as colitis, and diabetes.

If you are using Keftab to treat gonorrhea, your doctor may test you to make sure you do not also have syphilis, another STD.

Keftab can pass into breast milk and may harm a nursing baby. Do not use this medication without telling your doctor if you are breast-feeding a baby.

Do not give this medication to a child without medical advice.

Keftab is not expected to be harmful to an unborn baby. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant during treatment.

Take Keftab exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Do not take in larger or smaller amounts or for longer than recommended. Follow the directions on your prescription label.

You may take Keftab with or without food. Shake the liquid form of Keftab well just before you measure a dose. To be sure you get the correct dose, measure the liquid with a marked measuring spoon or medicine cup, not with a regular table spoon. If you do not have a dose-measuring device, ask your pharmacist for one.

Do not take Keftab for longer than 10 days. Take this medicine at the same time each day.

Your symptoms may improve before the infection is completely cleared. Keftab will not treat a viral infection such as the common cold or flu.

Do not share this medication with another person, even if they have the same symptoms you have.
