Cephalexin for dogs, Same as for people?
I had a prescription for Cephalexin 250mg for the dogs.. My question is:
Is Cephalexin 250mg for people the exact same thing? I have found that I'm allergic to the prescription given to me. I just ran out of the cephalexin from the vets, and wondered instead of having to pay a big price for more.. if I could use this that I had for me?
I've read the bottles, and both say Cephalexin 250 mg. The only differance I see is the actual capsules looked different. I am guessing that this is just because they are different brands... ?
I ask this because the tramadol that was first given to me in the vets office ran out, and they called in a prescription to the Drug store for more.. and it was the exact same thing as I recieved in the vets office.
Funds are tight, so if this cephalexin 250mg is one in the same, it sure would help to give it, instead of toss it out, and go to vets for more!
I am giving the cephalexin to guard against infection from broken tooth, until surgery is arranged.
