    Clindamycin for Laryngitis

    Clindamycin had a resounding success in terms of effectiveness after other AB failed. After the first pill within 4 hours very very strong effect and complaints have gone back strong. Side effects mild burning in the stomach area slight tongue coating. Otherwise I notice at the moment still nothing. Tablets taste disgusting. At the moment I am very well with this drug and the mode of action. It would be at any time with serious infections to the other ABs not recommend further recommend. After 6 days of discomfort, pain and no sleep, the 5 hrs of clindamycin needed to make me a healthy person again a relief.

    Clindamycin for Dental inflammation

    Twenty minutes after taking Clindamycin dizziness and discomfort occur. A pressure in the heart area scares. After 8 days of taking this drug (3 times 600mg), the tongue is completely furry and the oral cavity shows punctiform, white areas, which feel rough on the tongue – but with the toothbrush wegzubürsten are. Sometimes small blisters are found on the gums in the anterior area of the oral cavity. The bowel movement is soft – but not thin. The taste of this drug is around the clock in the mouth – even one day after discontinuation of this drug. This was an acute inflammation between the roots of a dead tooth, which was built with a titanium screw. The on-call doctor could not ensure the pressure of the inflammation by drilling up the tooth, as this screw was in the way – nor could the tooth be pulled, as only a maxillofacial surgeon was allowed to do it. Therefore, this clindamyzole prescribed 600 1-1-1. So I had to endure a little more than 3 days until the appointment with an oral surgeon. I was able to reduce the pain with Ibuprofen 600 (1-1-1), but only so that I had to endure the pain completely again until after the next work 2 hours before the next dose. Incidentally, I basically got a slight fever in the evening. After removing the tooth, I took Ibuprofen only once, just after the anesthetic became ineffective. 3 days after removal of the tooth by the oral surgeon (who sewed the wound), the pain became more intense, included in addition to the slight fever in the evening even earache, so the house dentist again clindamycin 600 (other company) 1-1-1 prescribed. As a precaution, I should take Eubiol 1×1 (self-payer) to catch problems with the side effects. (whether the side effects such as the o.b. lining on the oral mucosa is related, for me is not certain, but not unlikely). It is clear that the renewed revival of the inflammation caused by the suture, because this had a gap through which food leftovers in the wound and thus caused the further pain chaos. Thus, in the end, I can only report dizziness and pressure on the heart, but I do not know whether the lining in the oral cavity can also be assigned directly to the preparation Clindamycin. The stool is still soft – here I do not know if it is due to the eubiol, the slight fever in the evening was only gone when the intake fell away. I still have the earache. By the way, I’m a smoker, I have not touched a cigarette for seven whole days because of the wound, but if I have a coughing fit now – there comes out a pretty solid brown Schleimzeugs … I do not know if that’s the whole Time was suppressed or perhaps it was only brought out of the deepest depths …. Anyway – until now I have survived!

    Clindamycin for Dental inflammation

    I had to take Clindamycin 600 mg for 7 days because of a likely tooth root inflammation. After seven weeks I got involved in the antibiotic. Had the first two days when taking the tablets 1-1-1 strong burning in the throat and throat, but went away on the same day. Then everything went well. After the end of the intake I got four days later from now on at once a strong tongue tingling and burning. Then I noticed a horrible coating on the whole tongue, reinforced in the back part. Yellow, green, black …. awful. I could eat anything, with spicy food and alcohol at least the black disappeared for a short time. Today, seven days later, it is probably getting better. I wash with chamomile and sage tea. I hope the tongue is finally back to normal, because you get scared. And on the 5th day after taking the end I still had a horrible diarrhea, but this lasted only half a day, fortunately. Now I’m back to building everything up, at least the toothache is much better. But honestly this antibiotic is really fierce. If there are other options and methods, it is important to avoid clindamycin because of the unpredictable and long-lasting side effects beyond the time of use.

    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.

    The remedy (clindamycin 600 mg) was given to me after a heavily puffed wisdom tooth was pulled. Although the inflammation was thereby successfully combated, but subsequently suffered from severe diarrhea, circulatory problems and, after several days of ingestion, on strong tongue coating which also affected the taste sensation. Overall, the side effects seem to have been quite strong with me, if I would take it again with a dental treatment I doubt it.

    Clindamycin for Sinusitis

    I had to take the medication for 9 days for a pyelitis and would have been willing to take everything … On the first day I was a bit dizzy, but that went away. Unfortunately, since day 3, I’ve had a very unpleasant tongue coating that drives me crazy … Even if I take the last tablet tomorrow, I’ll call my doctor. Unfortunately I have the corrosive taste too. Actually, I hate antibiotics, but sometimes it is hard without ….

    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!
