Posted by JustAnswer at customer's request) Hello. I would like to request the following Expert Service(s) from you: Live Phone Call. Let me know if you need more information, or send me the service offer(s) so we can proceed.
Expert:  Dr. Bridget replied 4 months ago.

Thanks for your patience.

Based on your current symptoms, you may have tonsillitis, strep throat or upper respiratory infection. The good news is that the Cephalexin you currently have on hand can treat any of these conditions. The dose to treat these conditions is higher, however...250 every 6 hours or 500 mg every 12 hours for 10 days.

Please reply with any further questions.

Expert:  Dr. Bridget replied 4 months ago.

Sorry, we cannot prescribe here. If you need a quick script, a local urgent care can handle that OR there are some online physician services that can get a script sent to your local pharmacy.
