    Hi, Even I got 3 days ago by the dentist prescribed this antibiotic because I get a wisdom tooth, but somehow presses against another tooth and I just got it inflammation and had to endure severe pain for a week. So you go there and get the drug! Since I already have a penicillin allergy, I am always afraid of antibiotics and the dentist and I have chosen this as a ‘good’ alternative product ‘Unfortunately, the side effects are so violent that I am out of action and not even more dare to leave the house! I have stomach cramps so severe that it is unbearable. The pain radiates into the lumbar vertebrae and into the chest. I get very bad breath, have a pressure on the chest as if a truck parked on it! Add an incredible tiredness and constant dizziness when I lower or raise my head! All this does not mean that I’m pretty irritated and completely depressed! For me it is enough with this drug and I will not take it any further and after the weekend I prefer to introduce another solution before I continue to die with the feeling of dying! Not recommended and should urgently be checked by the pharmaceutical industry again! Effect, however, was still good. The toothache had disappeared the 2nd day. If it goes along with the fact that the other pains have drowned the toothache is then already questionable: ‘)

    Clindamycin for Jawbone inflammation

    I got clindamycin from the dentist because I had a strong inflammation in a tooth that was already on bones and the adjacent tooth. 300mg, daily 3 pcs. On Tuesdays I started with 2 tablets. Already after the first, this bad taste came in the mouth, of which I was really sick. I felt sick quickly and inside was this unbearable heat and restlessness. Already on Wed, these kollikartigen pain began in the whole abdomen and lower abdomen. I was dizzy and slept for up to 16 (sixteen!) Hours a day. On Saturday, after 11 pills, I got mucus (mucus only) and blood during bowel movements. I left immediately. It was so bad, it was around 7 o’clock in the morning. I pulled myself to bed with chamomile tea and hot water bottles and woke up shortly after 10 pm. I felt like I was dying. There was no blood left in the stool and no diarrhea. Today is the 4th day after weaning. I feel dizzy and dizzy. I have strong tension headaches and flicker scotoma. My stomach is still hurting. These are feelings of pressure and cramps. When urinating it burns now, my whole body itches and burns, but no visible rash except for damned dry skin, I have not had that yet. Temporal tachycardia and strong inner restlessness, really terrible. Concentration is disturbed, increased muscle twitching. Yes, everyone reacts differently. But that’s unbelievable … I’d advise against it. So far, I have been taking Clavamox (mild stomachache and a little tired), Zinnat (some heartburn, but went away when I took pantoprazole) and that … See the hellish side effects above. And I do not seem to be alone with that. Once and never again.

    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.

    Clindamycin for Dental inflammation

    Dentist prescription for root canal treatment / inflammation above the tooth. From the 3rd day of taking rash and pustules. Bitter taste and dizziness / circulatory problem was added. From the 4th day of taking abdominal cramps and dark diarrhea. On the 6th day the tongue turned black and I got well-founded fear. My dentist decided to stop immediately! Why is one prescribing such a drug in the 67% negative reviews in the forums? My dentist advised me not to prescribe the cheap junk anymore. I will keep the package leaflet well and pay attention to possible consequential damages; but with the hope that the concomitant symptoms gradually improve.

    Clindamycin for Jawbone inflammation

    Life threatening condition after ingestion – severe intestinal inflammation! That was probably the most horrible drug experience of my life. 7 days after cessation of the onset began terrible abdominal cramps, extremely strong diarrhea, vomiting from the severe pain! At first I believed in a gastrointestinal infection, but after 3 days I was so dehydrated and powerless, a normal daily routine was now completely impossible for me to go to emergency service. He knew IMMEDIATELY what was going on and immediately asked for a dose of clindamycin! This was followed by 10 weeks of extreme illness, complete exhaustion, hospitalization, very strong antibiotics. I fell as a mother of 3 children and self-employed in this time completely! My tip: IF you have the suspicion of a pseudomembranous colitis: Immediately to the family doctor to express suspicion, it is best to submit several stool samples and make QUICK TEST (!!!) on Clostridium difficile! (Do not just create cultures lasting 7 days!) This germ was then captured at some point completely unnoticed (most likely in a hospital!)! This germ is the only survivor in the intestinal flora after clindamycin u. some other antibiotics, it can multiply cheerfully and lead to extremely serious intestinal inflammation and breakthroughs and even death! In addition, I recommend, especially patents with sensitive bowel, chronic bowel disease, etc., a parallel intake of high-dose GOOD intestinal bacteria to prevent this extreme proliferation of Clostridia! My conclusion – Never again clindamycin! I make sure that if I have to take antibiotics, these are not among the most causing colitis species. Information can be found numerous in the internet!

    My Asian oral surgeon in Krefeld prescribed clindamycin for me after a tooth operation. For lack of language skills, he has prescribed me instead of a penicillin drug, clindamycin. I have tolerated all antibiotics well so far. After 4 days of intake I had a water diarrhea, later stomach cramps, so I almost had to call an ambulance, but did not want to cause any problems for my husband. Even weeks later I get bad stomach cramps and nausea, even though I only took the antibiotic for 7 days. My dentist has not responded to this problem and I must now additionally treat with another doctor for a fee. CONCLUSION: Clindamycin is a poison, has ruined my health and should be removed from the drug approval list.

    Side effects: Stomach cramps; Nausea; Diarrhea

    Clindamycin for Dental treatment

    After the removal of my last wisdom tooth an inflammation with great pain developed. After 7 days of pain, 2 cortisone strips later and a lot of ibuprofen, the dental clinic finally prescribed me an antibiotic: Clindamycin 600mg from Ratiopharm. Since then, I wish we were in America and a claim for 3 million compensation would be possible […] 12 hours after taking a violent diarrhea set. This diarrhea lasted more than 15 days. Color deep brown, consistency like red groats with mucus, accompanied by cramps. No matter what I took or ate – nothing helped […] Oh, I also got rid of my unloved kilos, which is not a good sign in the speed without sports. Now many fellow sufferers write about their experiences, but nobody has a solution proposed. Important, please do not take any other remedies (immodium, charcoal, perenterol) in case of such a diarrhea. The reason Clindamycin kills all intestinal bacteria. But not with the name Clostridium Difficile. He is happy, multiplies and attacks the stomach and intestine. If left untreated, it can cause parts of the stomach / intestine to die off. Do not worry, when you’re ready, you’ll notice more signs of it like just long, corrosive diarrhea. Nevertheless, this must be treated with antibiotics. A good doctor knows this and initiates treatment directly after a CHAIR TEST with metronidazole or vancomycin. Please have this test done, I read that some had to live with the diarrhea for more than 5 weeks or more, after that I would immediately change my doctor and inform the medical association! Immodium is not, because diarrhea is a sign of the body, getting rid of something unpopular quickly, Immodium keeps it in, the little friends have fun growing like pigs! I have written to Ratiopharm, until today no answer. Embarrassing, dear Mr. Ratiopharm !!! The twins are also not come with flowers – all lies * lol Very important (I had to learn too) let the doctor on side effects enlighten. Doctors can resort to the red list and believe me, with such a statistic, a doctor can say exactly how good a drug is, unfortunately, today the price counts, so clindamycin is cheaper than a very old until the end of controlled Ammoxicillin. Whereby there are certainly many who have problems with it. But that’s the way it is, we are individualists. For more information contact a trusted doctor, or just read the article in the wiki and type Clostridium difficile, here is also nicely explained the connection with clindamycin. So, let test and treat and no longer torture and soon say in prescription that you can not tolerate clindamycin! I do not have the time to be considered just a Red List statistic. If it still does not get better, then your doctor knows even more, only this test is the first step towards clarification, because only what is clear, can be treated! Remember, it must be 3 stool samples (for me it was like this). Get well! P.S. With positive entries for medicines, it is just as with holiday pictures and reviews on travel portals, you book 2 weeks Caribbean with sea views and get cockroaches and construction site. Think about it. By the way, at least the inflammation at the wound is gone, but I could decide, rather the right treatment with a good remedy, than from the rain to the eaves!
