Clindamycin Stevens-johnson Syndrome 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?
