    Clindamycin for Jawbone inflammation

    I got clindamycin because of a jawbone infection, I have to say that I tolerated it very well …. I react to many antibiotics allergic eg with hives ….. but not at all … got no diarrhea, no fungus, nothing …. the first 2 days I was tired and had a little headache that could be treated but with an hour sleep well …. the pain on the tooth stopped after a day of taking on ….. so first try and not be immediately shocked by the negative ratings, everyone reacts differently

    Side effects: Headache; Fatigue

    Clindamycin for Bacterial infection

    I would recommend anyone to take the drug only if there is a severe inflammation / infection and really no effective alternative is available, otherwise it may happen that after taking it is sicker than before. I myself had to struggle while taking with heavy fatigue, headache, bitter taste in the mouth and nausea, shortly after stopping the intake I got heartburn and a severe gastric mucosal inflammation, despite high-dose acid blocker until today (5 weeks after) not really subsided is. If you do not get around, I recommend taking probiotic yoghurt and / or omniflora (intestinal bacteria) capsules while taking it. Fortunately, I did not get diarrhea, possibly because of that.

    Side effects: Bitter taste; Headache; Fatigue

    Dose 3x600mg per day: Side effects after the 2nd day of intake such as stomach – head-back pain.A week after taking the last tablet still extremely variable blood pressure, from palpitations 180-100 to total fatigue, dizziness occurred at 110-60. During the night, until a week after taking the last tablet, the whole movement aperitif especially the cross hurt me terribly. Despite good efficacy, I would stop taking this antibiotic. The extremely bitter taste is still present day and night. You get really depressed. I just kept it up, because I wanted to make sure that there were no complications during the root canal treatment on the whisket tooth.

    Clindamycin for Tonsillitis

    Clindamycin 600mg, dosage: half a tablet 3 times a day. I have to take the medicine for purulent tonsillitis. Clindamycin is already the second antibiotic I had to take because of tonsillitis. The week before, I already took cefaclor, but this had no effect at all. On penicillin I react basically badly, which is why it ever fell away. So I went to the doctor again and this then prescribed me the clindamycin. The first two days of treatment were pretty good and except for a slight pressure in my stomach, I was not feeling very bad, I was just a little tired. From the third day of taking the sore throat and the inflammation were better in itself, but then started the side effects …. I noticed that I had lost some weight already on the morning of the third day, but I have not thought much of it, because I did not suffer from diarrhea or the like …. Rather, the drug tore my circulation more and more to the ground. On the said third day of taking I was already no longer able to leave the house, because I was constantly dizzy and I suffered from recurring nausea. From there it became progressively worse, the circulation did not want to join, I got chills, sweats, tachycardia, could not concentrate anymore, barely read through visual disturbances, color contrasts caused me a great headache and drowsiness, I felt somehow bedridden. Today, on the fifth day of treatment, I decided to drop it off tomorrow evening as I have lost 4 pounds within 5 days now … without diarrhea, without much exercise and despite regular meals. A drug for stomach or intestine my doctor had not prescribed me additionally. This is the second worst antibiotic I ever had to take and next time I will ask for another alternative.

    Hello dear ones after an inflammatory fallopian tube reception I got the drug Clindamycin with Metrondazol so two Preperate. Everything went well Inflammation values went down. I had and had to take both of these tablets for 10 days. But now it kills me, the first thing started with the burning of the tongue, then I observed bubbles on the tongue and then the taste turned around. The worst is still coming, after I came on 3.09.2012 from the KKH started a slight headache and stomach problems. Now the headaches have become so much of a hurry that I voluntarily went to the emergency room 2 times. before I had the tablet on 7.09.2012 set with the doctor’s agreement. So I just landed on the emergency room, where I was totally upset by my headache, the coolest thing of all was nerve water I was drawn because of suspected meningitis negative, blood tests negative, Halsvenen ultrasound negative, CT negative and now is the fear before the MRI …. The worst thing of all is that I am not a headache patient and almost never had such a headache. My headache, can be described as looking down does not go at all, the main stabbing pain sitting over the drowsy, by the puncture / nerve water, the headache was even more intense went up to the nose area, but mainly half right. To this day, I torment myself with it moderately. I have a child at home, a single parent, live in the village, no car, now I really ask myself what the doctors for medis. Anxiety is on the increase, but painkillers are barely helpful, if only for half an hour. Feel advice and desperate ….

    Clindamycin for Dental inflammation

    Because of a tooth root inflammation my dentist prescribed me clindamycin (3x 600 mg daily). On the second day of administration, the following side effects occurred. Pain in the heart – Muscular spasms and muscle slackness – Joint pain – Fatigue (similar to a flu) – Tiredness – Lack of concentration – Slight headache – Dizziness – Stomachache (pulling backwards) – Heartburn – Nausea – Heavy breathing (a feeling like something lying on my rib cage) – sweats – First improvements of my inflammation were to take true with this antibiotic after 4 days of ingestion. Swelling subsided and the pain became more bearable. After stopping the antibiotics, I continued to beat for three more weeks with stomach pain, constant heartburn and headache. Muscle problems (cramping and lethargy) and dizziness continue since today (just over 3 months). And despite aftertreatment, this problem can not be solved yet.

    Clindamycin for Kieferosteomyelitis

    On the occasion of a jawbone inflammation and Kiefervereiterung I should over 12 days 12 tablets Clindamycin ratiopharm 600 mg take, of which I did not get the last down. Through this drug, I was totally apathetic, could not eat or drink, had strong diarrhea, constantly had to choke and even talking was difficult, until two friends brought me to the emergency service outpatient clinic, where I was first hung on the drip. Reactions: Diarrhea, nausea, dizziness, exhaustion, apathy, weight loss (12kg), stomach ache, abdominal cramps, extreme headache, against which migraine is a walk, disturbed intestinal flora, abdominal pain, tremor, pain in the intestinal area, abdominal cramps, fatigue, weakness, convulsions, Suicidal thoughts, gastrointestinal upset, drowsiness, loss of appetite I took Clinda 600 in early June and am still ill today (late September), often vomiting and having diarrhea and stomach / abdominal and intestinal pain and (star-ke) headache as well as loss of appetite, side-effects, which only now begin to slowly fade away. I am still sick again and again, but in between I went to work very ill. The diarrhea is still going on and only after weaning particularly bad (like all side effects). I am afraid that permanent damage was caused. My dentist did not want to give me that stuff because he said it could be deadly. He knew about a case of a young man from America. It was prescribed to me in a jaw clinic, since it was absolutely necessary, otherwise I could have died of jawbone / inflammation.
