Cephalexin is an antibiotic that fights bacteria in the body. This means it treats bacterial infections such as ear infections, skin infections, upper respiratory infections, and as well as urinary tract infections. It should be said, as always, check with your doctor before taking any medication if it is okay to take it. It could be very dangerous for some to take Cephalexin because some people may be dangerously allergic to it. When using this medication you have to make sure to take it at a specified time every day that is prescribed by a doctor. The symptoms of the infection can be fully treated even before the specified time period ends but you must continue with the treatment. This will not treat a viral infection such as the flu or cold. The storing of the tablets should be in a room temperature area but the liquid form medication needs to be refrigerated. If any of the medication is not used after fourteen days you should throw the remainder away.

When going through the treatment the common side effects that may occur are:

  • Diarrhea
  • Dizziness; feeling tired
  • Headache
  • Joint pain
  • Vaginal itching or discharge

A medical and pharmaceutical supply company headquartered in Gardena, California, DV Medical Supply provides top-quality service to clients throughout the health care sector. DV Medical Supply also maintains an active philanthropic presence, supporting organizations such as JDRF.

Formerly known as the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, JDRF works to create a world where nobody has to struggle with type-1 diabetes (T1D). In addition to funding research to find effective cures and treatments for the disease, JDRF sponsors research into preventing the onset of T1D. Although T1D is not currently preventable, there may still be risk factors that individuals can avoid.

Thanks to research grants provided by JDRF, medical scientists have discovered a link between T1D onset and triggers such as viral infections and environmental conditions. Based on these associations, researchers have begun investigating potential vaccines for T1D. Another exciting avenue of inquiry involves microbes in the gut, which may play an important role in the onset of autoimmune disorders such as T1D.

For four decades, DV Medical Supply has served as an authorized drug and medical supply distributor. In addition, DV Medical Supply works with drug prescribers to help them utilize electronic services that streamline the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) registration process.

Doctors and other drug prescribers traditionally use DEA paper form 222 when they register as a Schedule I or Schedule II provider with dispensaries. Prescribers who wish to send only Schedule II electronic prescriptions through the DEA’s Controlled Substance Ordering System, however, have the option of submitting these authorizations without filing the paper form.

For doctors who have used only paper copies, the first part of the process involves applying for a digital certificate from the DEA. The approval process can take a month to six weeks.

Once approved, the prescriber will receive a copy of the new certificate. At that point, the prescriber can contact DV Medical Supply to receive login credentials and begin ordering.
