    I'm not a doctor, but every time I need to take an antibiotic for a uti, I also take a good probiotic with at least 1 billion good bacteria at least 2x, or three times a day several hours apart from the antibiotic to prevent diarrhea.  Cefalexin is sometimes given 4xs a day, so you are lucky.  Other antibiotics like Cipro can have worse side effects, even months after you stop taking them.   When you get better, take a D-mannose capsule 2xs a day to prevent utis.  Best of luck.
