Common Questions and Answers about Clindamycin and headaches


Avatar f tn t seem to have problems with doxycycline, amoxicillin or clindamycin. Clindamycin destroys my stomach though. I avoid cipro and zithromax.
Avatar m tn I have spoken to my family in the UK and searched the internet and can nothing about taking milk based products and antibiotics together. Is this a German idea? Please can you offer some information.
Avatar m tn Not knowing what else to do and moving back home shortly, I decided to stick with the salt rinses, finish out the clindamycin, and give it time. The headaches persisted and my speech was changing - the slight swelling on the front of my face around that extraction site caused me to grit out my speech and speak with a slight lisp. So I took 2 Advil, about every 4 hours for 2 days, and then 2 Advil a day for the next 3 days. It seemed to ease the headaches and pain.
Avatar f tn Alternatively, you can take clindamycin for the bv and drink a boat load of cranberry juice for the UTI and water of course. It will take longer to clear up the UTI but it should work. It did for me in a pinch. It just took a couple of extra days. Of course if you are diabetic you can't.
Avatar f tn Never breast fed and my kids are both school age now. I am allergic to Penicillins, Flagyl, Clindamycin, and Macrobid. On christmas eve I woke up with both of my breasts swollen by two cup sizes and with a sore redness on the undersides of both. I went to a walk in clinic because my GP was closed for the holiday and they diagnosed bilateral mastitis and prescribed me bactrim. 10 days later I was no better - in fact I was worse. Now I had headaches, body aches, chills, and nausea.
Avatar n tn has given me 10 days of clindamycin to be taken 3 times a day at a dose of 450 mgs. this is fine, i can take clindamycin with no ill effects. HOWEVER, i have read that this drug is not commonly used to treat std's as there are so many better options. Is clindamycin going to work??? Thanks.
Avatar f tn Hi I Was Recently Sick and Had To Begin taking an antibiotic called Clindamycin. Will I Be Okay To Drink Alcohol While On This Medication. I Have Read That This Antibiotic Doesn't Have Any Negative Affects While Drinking Alcohol. But Just Wanted To Double Check.
Avatar n tn Doxycilin 100mg, late in evening cause im really fair and sentivity to sun. At night before bed I wash face with a soapless gentle cleaner, or brevoxyl 4 and use clindamycin lotion. The clindamycin lotion makes my face more oily it seems, and is pretty thin, like milk. So far i've been on this regime for more than 3 weeks ,and the doxycilin and brevoxyl has cleared up my chest and back, and thighs almost completly, but my face has just been getting worse. Should I have seen results by now.
Avatar n tn heat bag extraorally, and warm salt water intraorally) may help reducing the severity and duration of the condition and i recommend that u stop the clindamycin as the course is usually only one week also,long duration of clindamycin usually causes git problems
Avatar m tn Then the sinuses became involved but I was able to blow my head off and get the stuff out.. Then I stated having some breathlessness and headaches and achy cheek bones and constant mucous in my throat and I would cough my head off. I felt the sinus drain and would carry kleenex with me to spit it out. I developed horrid gerd/heartburn/ bad breath and nothing in this world is helping with that and now the chronic sinus infection/problems.
Avatar n tn headaches, joint/back/neck ache, overall feeling crummy and the nodules. Also the fact that the multiple antibiotics didn't help.
Avatar n tn It is now 5 days taking benadryl and the hives and itching have not stopped. What is in the clindamycin that I may be allergic to?
Avatar m tn I recently went to the dentist to have my teeth cleaned and have some minor fillings touched up. Since this visit; a neighboring tooth that has had a root canal and a crown . I have clindamycin 300 mg, can I safely double up todays med intake. To be painfree for Christmas plans tomorrow??
Avatar n tn Can i take clindamycin with my levothyroxin 75mcg . Because i have a sore throat and runny nose ?
Avatar f tn Did anybody have horrible acne the first pregnancy and saw and improvement on the second pregnancy or vice versa?
Avatar m tn Prescribed ofloxacin, desonide and clindamycin with no results. Currently halfway through doxycline two week course and showing no real changes. The redness on top of penis tip changes from bright red when erect to mildy red when relaxed. There is a bright red spot that is about 1mm in size that the redness on tip seems to emanate from. Doctors don't think much of the redness although it is not "normal" because it was not there before. Could this be HPV?
Avatar n tn s so bad, I can not even read this screen, 5 inches away, if I close my good eye... Headaches, muscle weakness, trouble with one lung, easily winded, always tired, hands and feet that split open, and my feet are super sensitive to temperature, my hands have practically no feeling of temperature, but the sensation of touch is just fine. Also, adult acne, and pain everywhere. I also have had a broken tooth for two years, which swells with infection every few months. Sometimes 6 months between.
948202 tn?1245941816 I have not had any breakous for about 2 months since using clindamycin during the day, and sulfacetamide at night. I just recently added the retin-a becasue i wanted some anti-aging benefit. Also, i would like to add an antioxidant serum to my skin since i live in florida and want to protect my skin from UV etc.Do you recommend anything that wont break me out. When would i apply it before or after clindamycin? I use blue lizard face suncream as my spf.
Avatar f tn My dentist uncovered the implant and did a bone graft over the top of the implant where the infection had eaten the bone away. He soaked it in clindamycin and I took clindamycin orally afterwards. Six weeks after that, I started feeling bad again. My dentist put me on another round of clindamycin coupled with metronidazole. A 3D CONE x-ray showed that there was infection behind the top of the implant. This time, I had an oral surgeon uncover the implant and clean it out.
Avatar n tn ve never had a tooth extraction while having abscessing going on, and she said it was fine. Tooth was pulled and was sent home with an Rx of Clindamycin (150mg), 4xday. Infection got worse. Dentist, then used a lazer to open and drain the infected area. Several shots (7-8) of novacaine was needed to numb the area. After procedure, my mouth hurt and burned the worst that I've ever experienced before. The infection is still there.
Avatar n tn Thank you so much for your response. May I also ask what length of time would I take the Biaxin? And is there any home treatment, Like garlic pills etc. that would help augment healing? ( since Biaxin is not considered the best treatment.) Although I'm stuck with that. And frankly, I was on the Clindamycin for weeks and that didn't get rid of the infection, so maybe a broad spectrum antibiotic will work for me. I sure hope so. thank you again for your advice.
Avatar f tn Also, the infection has been treated with numerous antibiotics (amoxicillin, flagyl, omnicef, augmentin, clindamycin), and all seem to help at first, but only clindamycin has lasting effects. Not even augmentin worked. Any idea on what kind of bacteria would respond to clindamycin but not augmentin?
Avatar m tn I have googled Clindamycin and found that there is a link between torsades and Clindamycin. Is this drug in the same family as Erythromycin? Should I be safe and stop taking it. I have been taking it for 4 days and have 1 day left. My infection, which wasn't very bad to start with, is now gone. I have been having an increase of bradycardia and PVCs and I am a bit concerned. I don't have an ICD. Thanks for your help.
Avatar f tn I've taken Clindamycin and fluconazole to kill a yeast infection. But now my doctor tells me I might possibly get it back because antibiotics can cause yeast infections. I'm not even sure...
72351 tn?1281992542 I wrote in to you and you suggested to try Clindamycin or another drug. I took two of them into the vet to get the Clindamycin. He looked at one and said "oh he just has bad teeth". I thought this is strange as his teeth were fine until he contracted this ailment. He looks at the female and right away and said cancer! He did no biopsy or testing nor did he offer to do such. I find this extremely odd that I would have 4 cats who come down with this baffling ailment at apx.
Avatar f tn I have read about cipro an erythromycin being dangerous for those with a heart arrythmia but I have found much information about the lInk in clindamycin and heart problems. I have read that clindamycin is a commom drug prescribed to ppl before dental work to prevent endocarditis in those with heart problems, so why would they prescribe it to someone with heart problems if it is bad?? I dont take anything for my pvcs nor are they very bad.
