Clindamycin Dizziness Causes and Reviews


When you're dizzy, you may feel lightheaded, woozy, or disoriented. If you feel like you or the room are spinning, you have vertigo. These feelings may make you lose your balance.

Dizziness can have many different causes. A sudden drop in blood pressure or being dehydrated can make you dizzy. Many people feel lightheaded if they get up too quickly from sitting or lying down. Certain medicines and problems with your inner ear may cause Dizziness. So can motion sickness. Sometimes Dizziness can be a symptom of other disorders.

As people get older, they may have more health problems and take more medicines. This makes them more likely to have problems with Dizziness and balance.

Dizziness usually gets better by itself or is easily treated. If you are dizzy often, you should see your health care provider to find the cause.

Clindamycin Dizziness Reviews

Sun, 10 Oct 2010
I was given Clindamycin for a tooth abcess. Before extraction. I have been experiencing Dizziness, severe headaches, and now my eyes hurt when I take the pill, I now have black spots on the inside of my eyeball and dark red blood vessels that are showing up on my eyes..I have never had anything like this before with my eyes. Almost as if they are swelling up. I told the Dentist about this and they said its because of the infection. The tooth is out now, I have no more pain but I still have to take the antiobitic. I am scared to take anymore.
