Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.

Customer:

OK.

Dr. Rick :

You should be able to safely drink the amount of wine you are taking about while taking cephalexin.

Customer:

OK.

Dr. Rick :

That being said, in some people you might be more prone to flushing of your skin, mild nausea and abdominal cramps...but this is not common.
