Detailed Answer:
Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

I understand your concern.

Sertralin and Cephalexin do not have any major interactions when used together.

The only risk is that the metabolism of Cephalexin can be decreased when combined with Sertralin.

In this situation Cephalexin will need more time to be effective.

So, you should not be worried about this combination of drugs.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
