Cephalexin monohydrate belongs to the cephalosporin family of antibiotics first introduced in the early 1960s. Cephalosporins are divided into five ‘generations’ with each generation indicated in the treatment of various bacteria. Cephalexin monohydrate is a first generation cephalosporin.
What we like: Like all first generation cephalosporins cephalexin monohydrate does an excellent job treating respiratory tract infections, strep throat, UTIs and more. It prevents bacteria from propagating by undermining cell wall integrity.
