OnACephalexinBinge?: How about celebrating your last dose of cephalexin by downing it with a Bloody Mary?As long as you're not taking any other medications that could interact with alcohol (like metronidazole, sedative/htypnotics, seizure meds, etc) you'll be OK.Cephalexin can irritate the stomachs of some people, but you should have noticed that by now. If so, then how about a Philip's Screwdriver?(MOM + Vodka) HaHa!
