Also most conjunctivitis is viral, not bacterial, and will not respond to any antibiotic. If your doctor prescribed cephalexain (Keflex), take it as directed.

Im taking levaquin (levofloxacin) and now i think I have a yeast infection, is it ok to buy over-the-counter meds to treat it while taking the antibiotic?
Common problem: When taking any antibiotic, the normal bacterial flora of the vagina can be temporarily reduced. Yeast will overgrow, causing symptoms of itching and discharge. In general, it is fine to try an over-the-counter yeast medication. It used to be available only by prescription. Now you can get it on your own. Naturally, stop the yeast medicine if your symptoms worsen, or you seem to be allergic! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Recently had and treated yeast infection with Monistat. I went to my GYN and she prescribed a vaginal form of Metrizidanole due to my reaction 2 the antibiotic. She asked if I used it before and I said yes thinking I had. Will this give me vertigo 2?
No: Not enough metronidazole is absorbed from vagina to cause vertigo. It is not a common effect from oral use, either, unless you are foolish enough to use alcoholic drink at the same time.

Been taking Flagyl and keflex for diverticulitis have developed a yeast infection, can I take fluconazole along with my antibiotics to treat it?
Yes: Fluconazole can be taken along with Keflex and flagyl. Stop the Macrobid you list as taking.
