    Clindamycin for Dental inflammation

    have clindamycin wg. get a purulent tooth to survive the holidays in which I was just staying. Already after the second tablet I was getting worse and worse. My muscles cramped, I felt sick and I had such a metal taste in my mouth that I did not like it anymore. In the evening I got chills and stomach ache. only after discontinuing the drug, the symptoms slowly passed. But even now after almost 10 days I still do not feel very well. Since taking it, I also feel some old surgical scars as very unpleasant to painful. However, I suffer from fibromyalgia and may therefore react particularly strongly.

    Side effects: Metal taste; Chills; Stomach pain

    Clindamycin for Dental inflammation

    I took clindamycin for 4 days because of a strong inflammation on a wisdom tooth. I had to take one tablet 3 times a day, preferably 8 hours apart. I could not keep this because I always had to eat something while taking. On day 2, a strong metallic taste began that did not stop. On day 4, I noticed a soft stool that was becoming more frequent. Overall, the intake has brought something and the inflammation disappeared. However, a few days later I got a vaginal fungus and still had difficulties with the bowel movement for ages. The pharmacist has therefore recommended me a therapy to build up the Darflora and said, I should have taken this from the beginning to the antibiotic. I can only recommend this! The taste disappeared immediately after stopping the intake and was really bearable …. For an antibiotic really okay!
