My husband has been taking this med for a virus. He will eat something small before taking b/c it upset his stomach. Shortly after taking he will get hiccups that will last for awhile. Can this med cause this and should he keep taking? ## First of all, Cephalexin is an antibiotic, so it is only effective against infections, it will not do anything for a virus, since it's not an antiviral medication. Did his doctor prescribe this? That is why antibiotics cannot be used to treat cold or the flu, because they are caused by viruses, not bacterial infections. Using them inappropriately causes the risk of developing antibiotic resistant bacteria. As to the hiccups, it is probably because they can cause some gas in some people, if he is taken it with small amounts of food and gulping a flu...

I don't have money to go to a doctor but I have some cephalexin 500 mg pills but the exsporation date is 2/28/15 can I still take them ## Hello, Nana! How are you? Antibiotics lose efficacy with time, so once expired, they may not work as well as they did, when they were new, which creates the risk of your developing antibiotic resistant bacteria. Thus, it would be best to dispose of them and see your doctor, as soon as you can, for a new prescription.
