With a proclivity toward business and sales, Boston University graduate Neal Hyams found his niche in the medical industry, with his company DV Medical Supply. Established in 1978, DV Medical Supply distributes pharmaceutical products, such as cephalexin capsules.

An antibiotic, cephalexin treats bacterial infections, including urinary tract infections and upper respiratory tract infections. Cephalexin can also be used to treat skin and ear infections. As a precaution, patients must inform doctors of any allergic reactions to drugs, specifically penicillin. Patients with kidney disease, intestinal problems, and diabetes may also have adverse reactions to cephalexin.

Similar to other antibiotics, cephalexin has a prescribed dosage. To take cephalexin, the dispersible tablet is first dissolved in a glass with two teaspoons of water. It can be ingested once it is completely dissolved. To ensure that individuals take the complete dosage, water can be added into the same glass, to drink the remaining mixture.

The 250mg cephalexin capsule is taken orally every six hours, while the 500mg cap is taken every 12 hours, for the length of time prescribed by a physician.
