Patients with renal impairment should be given with caution. Pseudomembranous colitis has been reported with nearly all antibacterial agents, including cephalexin, and may range from mild to life threatening. Therefore, it is important to consider this diagnosis in patients with diarrhea subsequent to the administration of cephalexin. Prolonged use of cephalexin may result in the overgrowth of nonsusceptible organisms. Careful observation of the patients is essential. If superinfection occurs during therapy, appropriate measures should be taken.
