I'm writing on behalf of my significant other, a 59 year old male who on Clindamycin for two weeks for an upper respiratory infection. During the last three days he was taking it he started to get severe diarrhea and he has had it ever since. He has now had the diarrhea for three weeks. (he finished the Clindamycin regimen about 18 days ago.) He describes the diarrhea as sometimes completely liquid, sometimes not liquid but very soft.
the vet tested the kitten for luekemia and heart worms and all test came back fine, so she sum'd it up as the usual kitty upper resp. infection......my question is ,is it true that the dogs cant get this? cuz i have 3 and my other cat did come down with some snezzing so we got him some meds 2 from the shelter.....no cost 2 me, what i want 2 know is is my other cat going 2 get as bad as this kitten?
Yesterday morning I finished a 10-day dose of clindamycin for a tooth infection and that seems to have done the trick. I had used Zithromax for 5 days a month ago for a sore throat but that didn't affect the dizziness. The allergist's interpretation for this is that either Zithromax was not the right type of antibiotic or the 5-day treatment was not enough. Depending on the result of the CT scan, I might have to continue taking antibiotics.
Im in so much pain i can hardly stand it at times, i went to the dr a week after vomiting for a week and he said i had a middle ear infection gave me meds for vertigo and nuasea. 2 weeks later i went back, by then my asthma was acting which hastn in over a year, i was told i could have breathed in some of the vomit, so he sent me for an ultrasound of my liver and gallbladder.
I was then getting a lot of allergies and post nasal and was then coughing. Doctor prescribed Prednisone,Zithromax, Acyclovir [for cold sores] and Clindamycin cap 300 mg for sinus infection. Just lately I got acid reflux.... hard to swallow... even when I did it was bad... slight burning to severe burning feeling on the left hand side of my mid upper chest area. I went back again to see the doctor who told me the coughing, wheezing [which now both had stopped...
One was Avelox for an upper respiratory sinus infection 400mg for 10 days. The other one was Clindamycin for an infection from a root canal 750mg a day for 7 days. My main question is if I had contracted some type of STI from that oral episode would it be cured or affected by the medicine I was taking? The symptoms of urethral discomfort and urge went away initially after taking the prescriptions.
they assumed the tooth was starting to get infected again so 10 more days of Clindamycin and while on that developed respiratory infection and bronchial asthma so added 5 days zithromax, also asthma drugs and prednisone. The chest discomfort has become rather persistent especially following any kind of physical activity. I have had a history of mitral valve prolapse and also arrhythmia in the past which were only PVCs and they haven't bothered me for years....
When I went to emergency the doctor did a blood test for mono, he said my white-blood cell count was normal so it ruled out mono or viral infection. He then prescribed me 150mg pills of clindamycin with the following instructions: "Take 2 capsules 4 times daily for 3 days. Then take 1 capsule 4 times daily for 7 days." Again, I followed the instructions to the letter, the pain went away in 2 days, and I am now finished the clindamycin.
I don't know, however, if it works well for dental infections - that would be something your dentist would have to tell you - I've had it prescribed for ear infection and upper respiratory infections. I also believe it was Clindamycin that I had in the past for tooth abscesses - and that worked quite well to clear up the infection. Again, I didn't have any troubles with it, but everyone is different, so that' snot saying you won't.
However, pressure in my head still throwing me off in terms of what this could be. If I had a guess, it would be an upper respiratory infection of some sort. It's hard to tell with no mucus, cold-like symptoms or etc. My head pressure seems like sinus infection, but not near my face. It's on the sides and towards the back. I'm worried something is at play here. Any advice would be helpful. Cheers!
Had my nasal cavities cleared! We thought maybe it was Candida so I took medication for that, tried Zeyrtec for allergies, maybe its the ears, or dryness of the throat. Have you tried getting a humidifier? I have not, but am thinking that may help both of us. There is also something i found today online called Quincy (perintonsiller abcess) which could possibly be in the back of your throat and swells when its irritated..
for when I was first infected. I think my body was just able to fight the infection naturally for years, until it finally boiled over in '07. However, in spring of '07 I was fairly young (27/28) and in the middle of finishing up my education and moving for a position, so even though that is when I started to know that something was wrong, I ignored it for some time thinking that it might resolve on its own or that it could be stress related, etc. It was not until Dec.
I took 750 mg of Levaquin for 5 days for a respiratory infection and have been sick ever since. I have pain 24/7. I advise everyone to tell everyone they know to refuse this drug. I have MS and I was making progress prior to taking this medication. I feel as though I have taken 20 steps back since I took this medication. I have read that it can cause brain damage. My MS is concentrated in my brain, long term what should I expect.
After being on augmentin for upper respitory, I developed what I thought was a yeast infection. I hadn't had one in years. Got monistat over the counter, seemed to work. Then a week later it seemed to come back. Terrible itch and inflammation. Went to the gyno and he said strep B. I am 53, stopped having my periods 3 years ago, married. He gave me some type of vaginal cream which made it worse. Went back again to be retested. Not so much itchiness, but burning sensation.

It is usually caused by some sort of trauma or a sinus infection or other upper respiratory illness. Tumors are another possible cause, but not always. Exhaust is not a typical odor to experience, but burning wood is very normal. Exhaust is a close smell. As the first poster said, you should see an ENT to rule out any serious problems. Few drs are familiar with this disease, so you might want to do some research and print out a few articles before you head to a dr's office.
I went through all of the above and for a while I though I was going crazy because the doctors said they saw nothing they kept looking for ear infection when in fact it was a sinus problem. I even had a doctor tell me that I needed a hearing aid. I knew then I was in the wrong place I just left out of his office without finishing the conversation.
I will say that yesterday for the first time in a long time I began using the topical cream DUAC prescribed by my Dermatologist for acne. It is 1% clindamycin and 5% benzoyl peroxide, and as I write this it is forefront on my mind that this stuff may be the cause (there has to be an obvious link between my sudden reoccurrance and my recent use of this cream--yesterday). Perhaps some of the ingredients in this stuff are in something you use?
First and foremost do not rub, scratch eyes as this will only lead to more irritation, redness and swelling (possibly even an infection). For really itchy eyes i find that for me personally the best thing is to refrain from touching my eyes as much as possible (no matter how itchy - even if it drives me crazy) and to apply a cool compress which seems to help eleviate some of the itching. 2.
My husband had that problem a few years back and it was from steroids he had taken for an upper respiratory infection...Everything smelled terrible and he could not stand the sight of eggs or onions...My smoke smell does not affect my appetite and I do smell other things as well but once an initial smell is gone the smoke smell returns..I have been keeping a candle burning all day and it seems to mask it and at least the odor is some better than smoke...Let us know what the test shows.
I had every test known to man for heart, upper respiratory and stomach ailments and the only thing they could tell me is that I have Acid Reflux (GERD). I was reading about GERD and I am also very gluten intolerant. Apparently, these two fairly minor ailments can combine to flare up the Vagus nerve. I believe that's what's happening to me. Does anyone know if this is dangerous, or just annoying? I am certainly going to try the dill pickle cure ... I love dill pickles anyway.
I also feel like the yeast or candiliasis infection went rampage on mouth, throat and esophagus, I made an endoscopy and resulted clear. thay say the check for infection or bacteria and nothing resulted, again medicine for nerves that I ve been taking and shange nothing. The prblem is that I can't sleep since a week ago, I'm anxious, can't eat anything and I'm drinking tons of water, als my feel doesn't smell, my pee is almost white.
