Answer:

These medications can be safely taken together assuming you are checking your heart rate and blood pressure regularly at home, and you are following up routinely with a physician and they are monitoring your blood laboratory values for specific indicators (electrolytes, kidney function, and liver function). The dose of cephalexin is a little unusual; typically it is taken 3 or 4 times a day. You should check with your pharmacy and/or physician's office to make sure there is not an error with taking it once-daily.
