Is there any interactions between Cephalexin and mother's Milk Tea?

Is there any interactions between Cephalexin and mother's Milk Tea?

Lack of data: Herbals often lack studies looking for drug-drug interactions. Mother's milk tea has a mix of herbs with a reported area of benefits (and problems). Fortunately, Cephalexin has few drug-drug interactions, making one here unlikely. The main risk of cephalosporins is diarrhea and yeast infections, so watch for that rather than drug-drug interactions with your herbal tea. ...Read more

I'm developing a sore throat, can I take keflex for infection and norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) for pain? Are there any interactions? Until I have time to get to the dr on wed

I'm developing a sore throat, can I take keflex for infection and norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) for pain? Are there any interactions? Until I have time to get to the dr on wed

Don't take them!: There's no interaction between cephalexin (Keflex) and hydrocodone with acetaminophen (Norco), but you definitely shouldn't take them. Sore throats are almost always due to viruses, which cephalexin won't help at all; it would just make it harder for your doctor ro diagnose you. And a narcotic is giant overkill for a "developing" sore throat. Plain acetaminophen (e.g. Tylenol etc) is enough. ...Read more
