If you are allergic to cefaclor (Ceclor), you should not take cephalexin (Keflex) without first consulting your doctor. They are both cephalosporins, meaning, they are the same type of antibiotic, they just target different bacteria.
can i take clindamycin if im allergic to ceclor
Im allergic to bactrim and ceclor im not sure if it is because of the same thing in them or not but yeah.
Keflex is not a sulpha drug.
Yes, these two drugs are from a different family of antibiotics. Cipro is a fluoroquinolone antibiotic and Ceclor is a cephalosporin antibiotic.
Maybe. Some people that are allergic to penicillin are also allergic to Keflex and some aren't. To be on the safe side I would avoid it.
It depends what the allergy was to penicillin. Overall, there is around a 7-10% chance of cross-sensitivity (meaning you may be allergic to Keflex if allergic to penicillins). If you developed a rash/hives from penicillin, the doctor MAY prescribe Keflex if the Dr. believes Keflex is the best antibiotic choice for you. If you had an anaphylaxic reaction (meaning you had a life threatening reaction to penicillins), the doctor should NOT prescribe keflex. He or she should prescribe something else. Make sure you let your Dr. and pharmacist know all allergies you have to prevent any problems in the future.

No. Cephalexin (trade name Keflex) is a 1st generation cephalosporin, an antibiotic related to penicillin. It is not a sulfa drug or derivative.
keflex) is a cephalosporin not in the penicillin family. They do have cross reactions so someone who is allergic to penicillins needs to be more careful and watch for signs of allergic reaction esp if it is given IV. I am allergic to penicillin but not to keflex.
The brand name for Ceclor is Cefaclor.
