Clindamycin Dysgeusia Causes and Reviews


Our senses of taste and smell give us great pleasure. Taste helps us enjoy food and beverages. Smell lets us enjoy the scents and fragrances like roses or coffee. Taste and smell also protect us, letting us know when food has gone bad or when there is a gas leak. They make us want to eat, ensuring we get the nutrition we need.

People with taste disorders may taste things that aren't there, may not be able to tell the difference in tastes, or can't taste at all. People with smell disorders may lose their sense of smell, or things may smell different. A smell they once enjoyed may now smell bad to them.

Many illnesses and injuries can cause taste and smell disorders, including colds and head injuries. Some drugs can also affect taste and smell. Most people lose some ability to taste and smell as they get older. Treatment varies, depending on the problem and its cause.

Clindamycin Dysgeusia 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.

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?
