    Clindamycin for Pain (acute)

    Hello, clindamycin was also prescribed by the dentist after a root tip treatment. The tissue was inflamed. I have an extremely bitter taste in my mouth that is clearly not due to reflux. The taste is suddenly in the entire oral cavity and on the tongue. In between, the bitterness diminishes, until the second taking of the aromatic, then the bad taste comes back. Super disgusting. My stomach / gut grumbles since the second tablet intake and sometimes I have severe stomach pain. I have never been hypersensitive to stomach, only since taking this drug. I am unbearably tired and I have to sleep in between, otherwise I can not do the rest of the day. Partly I have extreme heart racing. Fortunately, I only have two tablets to take. That was also the first and last time that I accepted this antibiotic for me. The only advantage is that I have to use clindamycin only twice a day. Appeal to the dentists and especially the manufacturer: Do not prescribe this antibiotic until the side effects have been resolved in this violent form. There are other, far more compatible products, which should also be possible with Clindamyzin.

    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.

    Got Clindamycin after a Wurzelspitzenresektion, equal high doses, three times a day 600mg. Have taken it a week, every time after taking the pill extreme stomach cramps, so blatant that I got sweats. My tooth got better after about 4 days, everything else got worse every day, especially nausea, pain in the esophagus, palpitations and dizziness. Did it through 7 days and then it did not work, every tablet came out immediately. Hope very much it is enough now. Never had an AB with such blatant side effects.

    I can only confirm what I’ve read in this forum so far. Two weeks after a back surgery, Schwerzen used the surgery. After another 12 days, inflammation was diagnosed, which (since I was in a clinic) was treated intravenously with clindamycin 600 3x daily. I tolerated these quite well – the side effects were limited to a changed taste, loss of appetite, slight itching on the thighs. Then I was switched to tablets (again 3 times daily Clindamycin 600) and discharged after another 3 days. On the fourth day (now at home), the side effects then slowly set in: permanent nausea. In the night of the 5th day sweats, tachycardia (over 100 / min) high blood pressure. Nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, shit outbreaks, tachycardia, anxiety, trembling all over, tampon on tongue, angular taste, itchy skin. The now called emergency doctor advised me to stop taking this medication immediately and to choose an alternative medicine the next day with my doctor. Driving a car is definitely not possible with this remedy, as must now run a taxi.

    Clindamycin for Sinusitis

    Diagnosis: massive paranasal sinus and sphenoid inflammation. First, I was prescribed penicillin. After a week, there was no improvement. My ENT doctor then prescribed me clindamycin (600 mg) in tablet form. From the second day the following side effects occurred: fatigue, drowsiness, difficulty concentrating. Heartburn, stomach ache, a disgusting taste in the mouth, which lasted for hours even after the meal. From the 4th day came increasing muscle weakness. After consultation with the doctor, I should continue to take the medication and have patience. From the 5th day I could barely stand on my feet, had to lie an average of 22 hours a day … In addition there were tachycardia, anxiety and insomnia. The skin has deteriorated very much: gray and very dry. White-black tongue coating. And last but not least: 3 kg weight gain in a week. On the 7th day I discontinued Clindamycin after consultation with the doctor. Nevertheless, the inflammation only goes back very slowly. I have already taken some medications with my 41 years, NEVER had any side effects felt. This time I really went through hell. This drug is FORBIDDEN !!! I’m not the first one in this forum who has had this experience. What I find extremely questionable: the topic of participation in road traffic is in the package leaflet nothing negative. Who takes this devil’s stuff and sits in the car, is a suicide or a madman … Continue 2 weeks after weaning: in the meantime, all sinuses are highly inflamed. I have to get involved in a not entirely harmless operation. Thus, the effect is zero! The 3-week hell by the side effects, I could have saved myself. Am still very weak, dizzy, drowsiness u.s.w are still there. I can only recommend one thing: FINGER WAY!

    4 days after the treatment period of 3.5 days (10 tablets) I have discovered few red cusps on the breastbone. The following morning, severe red rashes on sternum, upper arms, abdomen and upper legs. Stomach and chest worst. Another day later, I was a complete crumb cake with recurring itchy areas. Also on the back, exactly: complete torso, thighs, less on the lower legs, but new: knees and increased on the upper arms. Sternum and back worst. In the meantime summery temperatures outside, which do not make the feeling better (t) … In between tachycardia – at night, from which I woke up. Slight panic attack – which I do not tend to. Wound healing and while taking the tablets: all good, but just later impact / s. Had received 10 months earlier in just a jaw surgery other antibiotics: without any problem. Oral Surgeon wants to take this remedy from the list – probably not only with me … I currently use a milky-powdery lotion, which should provide relief of itching in chickenpox and shingles. Since today, something seems to help too. In addition, I have to take Decortin – so cortisone-containing preparation against allergic reactions … I had imagined otherwise. Never again!!! – And I only see what the stuff is doing externally, my organs will certainly not good … 🙁
