    Clindamycin for Pain (tooth)

    Very good: If toothache is caused by bacteria (keyword: root-treated tooth), so it seems pain-relieving after the first intake and in the best case the pain is gone after a few days (causes such as bad root fillings are of course not eliminated, but the culprit is localized with it). BUT: The side effects are not to be underestimated, so I recommend the following: The strict Every 8 hours of intake should be softened so that you can take the tablet with a meal. In no case throw in on an empty stomach at night and go back to sleep. When taking at least 0.5 liters of water and drink a lot in the first hours after taking. But the aftertaste should be remembered. Take a perenterol forte daily, soothes the stomach and intestines. Preferably a few hours after taking clindamycin. These recommendations are based on your own experience as follows. I took Clindamycin for treatment of a root-treated tooth and took it to me without bothering every 8 hours (so none of the recommendations above) and within a few days I was very bad with severe diarrhea and appetite, so clindamycin had to be discontinued after 3 days. With the side effects I had to fight for weeks until my intestinal flora had recovered. Half a year later I finally had the root-treated tooth pulled and promptly got an alveolitis sicca with inflammation, which should be treated with clindamycin. This time I met the mentioned rules quite meticulously. I had no pain or intestinal problems, that is Clindamycin worked without any problems, but without any real side effects.

    Side effects: Anorexia; Stomach pain; Diarrhea

    Clindamycin for Streptococcal infection

    I took clindamycin MIP 600 mg 3×1 due to a streptococcal infection in the throat (smear +++) – after the first two tablets I had a strong bitter taste in my mouth – which was also with candies, etc. not to expel. In the course of the entire therapy I had to fight with diarrhea – but did not bother me. I also got Omniflora Kpsl from my doctor from the beginning of treatment. to. On the last day of treatment, a rash occurred – which spread to the entire body within 3 days (only my face was spared). Itching comes in bursts. Some red spots appear to be fading and look as if they have dried up – with flaky skin. – get prescribed antihistamine. Rash now in better shape – seems to fade.

    Side effects: Itching; Skin rash; Diarrhea

    Clindamycin for Surgery

    On 17 August 2010, had a wisdom teeth surgery Muscle Clindamycin 600mg for 5 days. Since 24 August – so now already 3 weeks – I suffer from diarrhea, which takes place once or twice a day – no matter what I ate during the day. The first prescribed agent loperamide acute did not help. At the moment I’m trying hard to get this condition under control with Omniflora. If I read through the previous contributions, I should rather go to the gastroenterologist rather than to the family doctor – because I meanwhile no longer knows, this diarrheal state should continue. My stomach is also constantly making noises. I strongly advise against this medication – it is not normal if 38 percent of people here have similar symptoms. Incredible!

    Side effects: Diarrhea

    Clindamycin for Pharyngitis

    I have to say that the antibiotics are basically difficult for me. Otherwise, as far as I know, I am allergic to anything else and tolerate all other medications. Because of a long-lasting pharyngitis my doctor prescribed me clindamycin. 3 times a day of a tablet. I drank at least half a liter of water with each of these tablets to avoid stomach problems. Went well too. I was a bit tired and often tired, but that’s the case with taking any antibiotic. On the fourth day, the last day of the treatment, I had diarrhea, which continues today (now for 6 days). Thankfully, I’m not in pain. Except sore throat of course. My throat has completely ignored the use of this antibiotic. Although an extra swab was made and the existing bacteria were supposed to be sensitive to clindamycin. In addition to diarrhea, a pimple rash developed on the upper body after discontinuation of the drug.

    Side effects: Skin rash; Fatigue; Diarrhea

    Clindamycin for Respiratory infections

    Immediately after taking clindamycin, I got stomach and intestinal cramps. Shortly thereafter diarrhea. Since I easily get diarrhea for one day when taking this type of medication, I also took the second tablet (2 a day, as prescribed by the doctor). The diarrhea became the waterfall . On the second day (it was the weekend), I decided to take one more tablet in the morning to see if I would continue to have diarrhea – I had and how, even though I did not take another tablet afterwards, On Monday I went to the doctor – after a blood and stool sample examination, I was not allowed to take this drug all my life, I had a severe allergic reaction to clindamycin, a pseudopiniferous colitis had to be treated with heavy medications, otherwise my intestine would have decomposed – everything is healed.

    Clindamycin for Bacterial infection

    I received the drug after the removal of my tonsils, as I unfortunately got a bacterial infection. During the intake I suffered from severe diarrhea, severe abdominal pain and lost 15kg. After discontinuation of the drug, there was no improvement and I am literally physically decayed. My doctor then found a severe pseudomembranous enterocolitis, triggered by clindamycin, more specifically, clostriedia difficile, which often occur after ingestion / proliferation in the intestine. I could only get back on my feet with a very expensive treatment with Vancomycin 1000.

    Clindamycin for Inflammation

    I took the capsules for a day and now had to fight diarrhea for 4 weeks. After one day, I switched to another antibiotic – but had to suffer badly for 4 weeks. The problem: the stuff is like a hurricane for the gut. How long it takes for the intestine to clear up afterwards depends on each one. Some may take days – other weeks – but there are cases with people who took months to years to do so. Probiotik-protect in combination with Tannacomp helped me a lot. Nevertheless, I suffer now greatly from the weight loss and the spoiled four weeks.

    Side effects: Diarrhea

    Clindamycin for Dental inflammation

    Clindamycin was prescribed to me about 20 years ago for a dental issue (jaw was inflamed). All right, 5 weeks later I had intestinal inflammation after diarrhea: The worst pain I’ve ever had. 10 kilos and sat day and night only on the toilet. The absolute hell. Only at the second visit to the internist I mentioned the past weeks taking Sobelin (contains the drug clindamycin) and then got (and after various investigations) Vancomycin prescribed. After 3 days I was freed from the hellish intestinal inflammation. Since then, lincosamides (= clindamycin and lincomycin) have been absolutely taboo drugs for me. A Greek doctor wanted to prescribe clindamycin 15 years later after a motorcycle accident. Not with me: If I only hear antibiotics, I ask for the drug, so as not to fall into the clindamycin trap again. However, I would like to emphasize that I had no side effects with other antibiotics so far. So I’m not one of the people who often have medication problems. Here I was really unlucky, any disposition. However, my former internist vehemently rejected the careless prescribing by dentists. I think he even called my then dentist and told him about his bad experiences with clindamycin. My conclusion: Never again clindamycin.
