Keflex & Cyclimycin?
I've been prescribed generic Keflex (Ibilex) for an ear infection and have been taking it for 4 days now. I usually take Cyclimycin for a skin problem (acne).

Since taking the Keflex I have fever and headache and extreme tiredness. I stopped taking the Cyclimycin for 4 days now and my skin really erupted.

Can I take the Keflex and Cyclimycin together or will there be an adverse reaction?

Dear Cindy
Rather not take the two antibiotics together.
