Clindamycin Headache Causes and Reviews


Almost everyone has had a Headache. Headache is the most common form of pain. It's a major reason people miss days at work or school or visit the doctor.

The most common type of Headache is a tension Headache. Tension Headaches are due to tight muscles in your shoulders, neck, scalp and jaw. They are often related to stress, depression or anxiety. You are more likely to get tension Headaches if you work too much, don't get enough sleep, miss meals, or use alcohol.

Other common types of Headaches include migraines, cluster Headaches, and sinus Headaches. Most people can feel much better by making lifestyle changes, learning ways to relax and taking pain relievers.

Not all Headaches require a doctor's attention. But sometimes Headaches warn of a more serious disorder. Let your health care provider know if you have sudden, severe Headaches. Get medical help right away if you have a Headache after a blow to your head, or if you have a Headache along with a stiff neck, fever, confusion, loss of consciousness, or pain in the eye or ear.

I was given this medicine for 2 absessed teeth. 300mg 4 times aday. By the third day I felt as if I was having a heart attack. I also had a severe Headache that I could not seem to get rid of. I have had to take many different antibiotics over the years and have never had this problem. This happened on a Sunday and I stopped taking the pills and called my dentist on Monday morning, he called in the Z pack and I am feeling much better, just the day after. I noticed everytime I took the meds I got worse with each one. I will never take this again. I am allergic to penicillin which is why he perscribed in the first place. I have been in the hospital before only to find out that my heart beats too slow. So this scared me.
