It shows broad spectrum activity against gram positive microogranisms such as Staphylococcus, Staphylococcus epidermidis; Streptococcus, Corynebacterium diphtheriae, Clostridium, Actinomyces israelii, Bacillus anthracis, gram negative microorganisms like Escherichia coli, Klebsiella, Proteus mirabilis, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Neisseria meningitidis, Shigella, Salmonella. Common infections that are treated with Keflex include infections of the middle ear, tonsils, throat, larynx (laryngitis), bronchi (bronchitis) and pneumonia as well as in urinary tract, skin, and bones.

Dosage and directions
The dose of Keflex for adults is 1 to 4 grams in divided doses. The interval between doses may be 6 or 12 hours depending on the infection.

Salicylates and indomethacin slow excretion of cephalexin by kidneys. Medications decreasing secretion in renal tubules increase the concentration of the medication blood serum and slow down its excretion.
