Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Yes it can be in case of bacterial infection.

The course is 250 mg 4 times daily for 7 days.

However in most cases bronchitis is caused by the viral infection resulting in inflammation in the airways and nagging cough.

Keflex will not work for viral infection.

That is fought off by body's immune system on its own.
