Clindamycin Abdominal Distension Reviews

Wed, 21 Mar 2012

I started taking it (150 mg - 2 tablets every six hours) a week ago for a root canal infection.  It wasn't long before I felt tremendous Verdigo/dizzyness and fatigue, especially in the morning and, after walking up a moderately elevated ramp from the beach, had quite severe angina pressure and pain.  I took my last two pills this morning before because I was told to finish it and I realized the exhaustion I've been feeling could be related and looked it up.

I quit clinamycin300 after six days because of diarrhea and uncontrollable bowel moments. my doctor now tells me to take Imodium which it says not to on info. sheet. Not sure what to do.

Mon, 30 Nov 2009

This is day 9 of a 10-day regimen of Clindamycin 300 mg. I woke up this morning with a rash all over my body that is probably linked to the medication. It was prescribed for a bacterial infection that developed in my right hand (from either a sticker from yard work or an insect bite). The redness and swelling went down completely two days after I was given an initial injection of the drug and took the pill three times per day.
Can I treat this rash with benedryl? The blisters are also in my mouth and my throat is mildly sore.

Wed, 22 Sep 2010

I have MRSA again and have been on Clyndamycin 2 150 mg tablets 4 times/day for a week. I am having very severe chest pain and everytime I eat anything it burns so bad that I can't keep eating. Also having bad abdominal pain. I have Behcet's syndrome and a fairly raw G.I tract is normal, this is beyond that though. Any ideas?
