This answer was rated:

i accidently took 2 x 500mg Keflex capsules (anti bionics) 1 hour away from each other will this be a problem?

Anthony Bray MD : Hello!
Customer:

hello

Anthony Bray MD : No this is not a problem for you at all!
Customer:

thankyou i just forgot i had taken 1 about a hour beforehand

Anthony Bray MD : With Keflex I would take this at 8 hour intervals most typically.... It would not be that unusual to load initial dose high and then continue at 8 ( and possibly as much as 12 hour intervals )
Anthony Bray MD : I would advise that you continue the rest of the prescribed course at regular intervals until the course was finished .
Customer:

no problem, thankyou Ive been on it for about 3 days now but approx 8 hourly

Customer:

I shall try to stick to the regularity...thanks a lot bye

Anthony Bray MD : Ok this should be no problem! The extra dose is not enough to hurt you! You will be fine!
Anthony Bray MD : You are very welcome!! Best regards,
Customer:

Anthony Bray MD : Anthony Bray MD

Customer:
