A 19-year-old female asked:
28 weeks pregnant is apo cephalex safe to take during pregnancy, just nervous about it and wanted to double check?

Apo cephalex: This is a cephalosporin antibiotic. It is used regularly in pregnancy and is considered safe. Remember you are 28 weeks and the fetus is fully formed. A maternal infection is a risk to both mother and baby, if not treated properly.
