    Clindamycin for Dental inflammation

    I had to take the drug 2 times a day for 10 days for a root inflammation. Have already had a bitter taste in the mouth after the second intake, after about 5 days began the diarrhea, which continues to this day (8 weeks later). Since then, my stomach has been infernally sensitive and hurts quickly. For 2 weeks, complaints have been set in the right upper abdomen, for 3 days in the lower abdomen. After eating, I often get sick, which I have never known before. Family doctor urgently urged me today to a colon clean-up and noted on my file that I probably can not stand this AB. While taking it, I felt like I was poisoning my body (similar to a chemo therapy) I’ll never take it again.

    Inflammation of the tongue and the entire oral cavity commences after one day of administration and reaches the palate. Extreme burning reaction to all sorts of spices, sweet, sour, salty, carbonated, fruit acid, hot / cold, steadily worsening until on the 3rd day I could only consume lukewarm tap water. Drug discontinued, then steady subsidence of the side effects, after 1 day no more stomatitis. Replacement therapy: Roxithromycin 300 mg once a day (Roxi 300-1A Pharma), very well tolerated

    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.

    Had to take antibiotics due to recurrent cystitis. After no less than 4 tablets, a nasty rash has spread to me, first in the chest area, then on the neck, stomach, arms, hands. I have to say that the actual complaints went great. I have also noticed a taste change with me, I had constantly a bitter, artificial taste in the mouth. Go to the doctor later because of the rash, I’m curious, what now comes to medication. What I read here is not exactly what makes me happy. In any case, I would not recommend this product. Then I’d rather use amoxicillin again.

    Side effects: Taste changes

    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!
