Clindamycin and valtrex

Common Questions and Answers about Clindamycin and valtrex


Avatar f tn He started me on teva-clindamycin for the bacterial infection and advised me to stop taking the valtrex incase it was the cause for my inability to void. He had a catheter inserted that same day and I wore it overnight. I came back the next day to have it removed and was still having difficulty voiding. However, I refused to have another catheter put in. I insisted on going home and trying to pee in the shower (which has been getting me by for now).
Avatar f tn I also get epidurals for lower back and hip/leg pain and am testing for nerve bloc in neck area. I took valtrex for over a year and it didn't help me. What saved me when working and when I'm not super sick is extended release adderall. I also take all the natural antivirals and loads of supplements for immune and all sorts. Not sure if they do anything but afraid to stop thinking could be worse. I just ordered NT Factor and have hope for something to help the fatigue/malaise, which is gruesome.
251222 tn?1270939717 This is on the L side of the chest also. Last October my Neuro started me on Valtrex, 2 gr. daily, and after a few weeks the lymph nodes started to improve. The gram pills are huge, and I as much as I felt a ton of improvement with them, swallowing them was a frightening experience. A couple times I nearly choked to death, but got them back out. So this led me to sort of slack off taking them (bad I know) for fear of choking.
Avatar n tn I also have herpes simplex 1 which I've had for about 4 years and have only had 1 outbreak in that time. Out of fear of experiencing another outbreak, I take Valtrex daily which reduces and shortens the length of time if I was ever to get another. my Dr. says that it doesn't look really like an out break at all, and it certainly doesn't feel like how I remembered it to feel like. No one knows what this is and why I keep feeling like this.
2108821 tn?1334080535 Unfortunately im the results came back positive. well i had cryosurgery done may 18 2012 and he perscriped Valtrex to start taking it immediately. Today is my 5th day taking the medication 1mg a day and still no changes my discharge "still" remains it doesnt flow out of me it sticks to my vaginal walls which annoys me!! i feel wet ALL the time!!! PLZ can anyone tell me if they have experience something similar to me..
Avatar m tn and prescribed Clindamyacin, Corbetasol, and Valtrex to cover all our bases. Despite my negative tests and previous diagnoses, she still worries that it might be HSV related. She wants me on antiviral drugs just to see if they have any effect. So here's my problem. I've taken Valtrex before (2 pills daily, AM & PM for a week) and it had no discernable effect on my symptoms, healing or future outbreaks.
Avatar f tn Soon after it burst with puss and blood coming out then healed. I went to the er the same day and got tested for herpes and was negative but was perscribed valtrex just incase of positive results. I finished the script but not even a month later i have the same bump in the exact same area. I applied a hot compress which bought it to a head and i ciuld see a hair growing out. I pulled the piece of hair poking out with tweezers. IMMEDIATELY AFTER puss then blood came out alot of blood.
Avatar f tn On Thursday I saw the dermatologist and he said it was likely a bad bacterial infection, gave me strong ointment and antibiotic Clindamycin HCL, the ointment Altabax retapamulin 1% and said if it didn't at least feel a little better in the morning go to the hospital. I entered the emergency room Friday morning in major pain, and with a disfigured face. I was admitted Friday evening and given an iv drip with 6 rounds of antibiotic.
4691073 tn?1391704031 I visited 4 different doc. They all thought BV or YI. They all put me metrodinazole or clindamycin. It did stop the discharge and bad odor, but I have this reddish look on vulva also still itchy and sometimes it stings :( Doctors check for outbreak external and internal and they didn't find anything. I tried salt baths it helped a little. I am using probiotics. I have never been like this before. Even I got outbreaks it doesnt itch like this. Could herpes cause this?
Avatar m tn I have maybe 2 breakouts each year on the back of leg and take Valtrex to controll it when its active. My total Cholesterol is a low 85 and my HDL is 31. I had a possible exposure on June 21 with a sex worker in Panama, we had protected vaginal and anal, and unprotected oral sex. About or around the 16th of July I started feeling bad with a massive headache almost like the start of a herpes outbreak. Then a couple of nights of bed sweats and a loss of appetite.
Avatar n tn I get kinda the same symptoms, but I get a sore throat, swollen glands and flu-like symptoms. I am currently on Valtrex and was on it the past two times. From what I was told by the Doctor in the Expert forum, it is possible to have HSV and have negative test results because the virus can lie dormant for quite awhile. He also told me that the culture(swabbing test) is not sensitive enough and can give false negatives.
Avatar f tn By this time my right breast was also swollen and also had some blisters, although a lot fewer than the left. They gave me clindamycin through IV and both the redness and swelling went down dramatically within 45 minutes. But my culture came back positive for herpes--no typing. I developed a low fever and also a sore throat with a white ulcer in the back of my throat.
Avatar f tn I started dating a man a few months back and a few days after out first sexual encounter, I developed a burning and tingling sensation in my rectal and vaginal region and pretty much had the symptoms of hsv so I went to the doc and I was diagnosed with yeast and bv, no comfort from treatment do returned and was given an igg test. First test was 4.0 and next was 2.10.
Avatar f tn i recently found out that im 2 weeks pregnant and iwas on antibiotics(doxyclyn and metrronidazole) for bacterial infection before i took the test ,i want to know if this has affected the baby or me.
Avatar f tn When I went to the emergency room the doctor there said he thought it was herpes and gave me valtrex and clyndamicin. The PCR blood test the ER doc did came back negative for both type 1 and type 2 HSV. It has now been a week and I no longer have a fever and all the blisters have turned into yellow crusts that are falling off. I never had anything ooze out of my nipples. Just those yellow crusts now that it is healing. I also had an ultrasound and everything looks good.
Avatar n tn While having this “cut” I have had, over the course of 1 year, 2 negative cultures and 3 negative PCRs. I have been taking Valtrex on and off, but have not taken the Valtrex before I get the culture, but not sure if the Valtrex may still be in the system for some (?). Anyway, over the last 2 months, this issue has been coming and going approximately 1-2x a week (whereas it used to occur approx. 1 time a month-- lasts a few days and goes away).

Avatar n tn I went to see my GYN because I thought I was suffering from yeast/bacterial vaginosis--he prescribed Flagyl, as well as Clindamycin and as a final precaution ordered an HSV blood test. I am relieved, yet very upset about the official verdict. I've probably been infected with HSV-2 for at least 30 years. I have an 18 year old daughter who was delivered vaginally without any issue. I was married for more than 11 years and never infected my husband. How can this be?
Avatar n tn They put me on clindamycin for the vaginosis. Are you saying to go back and get tested again in 12 weeks if it comes back negative? I'm not familiar with how this works. I know that the vaginosis itched like crazy, which is why I think that I may have actually contributed to the ulcer type skin to appear. I had almost an identical experience a couple of months ago, but left the area alone instead of putting something on it.
Avatar f tn They did a swab and said BV and gave me clindamycin for 7 days at night. I still get on and off "burning" and a "heat" sensation on my thighs. I am just starting to mentally prepare myself herpes. There really is no other answer. I quit my birth control to see if that would help and I started the Valtrex again but my symptoms aren't really getting better. Just keep coming and going.
Avatar n tn I was given a 7 day regimen of Valtrex 1g/day and coupled that with Neosporin, so I can't really tell which one was effective. The blisters were gone by the 18th. The test was IgM negative. I understand that this test cannot differentiate HSV strains, that isn't a problem since my girlfriend was tested and we know it's HSV-2. Then the other symptoms started after the blisters had disappeared.
Avatar m tn problematic issue with HSV2 on my face. I am going to start with a timeline of what has happened and my symptoms.12/15/12 – Most likely exposed to HSV2 virus on face & mouth via oral sex in a careless moment with wife of 20 years. My wife & I both have Genital HSV2. We have never had symptoms on our face. 12/16/12 – (12 hours later) noticed rough dry skin spot (flaky cold sore like, but this spot never bubbled up blister wise) on side of lower lip.
Avatar n tn simplex or #3 take Valtrex (perscription) and AND antibiotic cuzz' staff is always a problem ... I am taking my 3rd course of valtrex and septosporin in the last 2 months. I used to get headaches and then ear infections , then antibiotcs. NOW with the valtrex I have been given a new lease on pain management and life!
Avatar n tn Other information and symptoms that someone might recognize... 1. I was put on two antibiotics, amoxicillin and clindamycin, in months prior to this (February and the end of April) for other health issues. I had to treat myself for a yeast infection following the amoxicillin treatment. 2. I am on birth control pills. I am currently 27 and have been using them since I was about 17. 3. I have always struggled with vaginal dryness. Using tampons was sometimes uncomfortable. 4.
Avatar m tn The first doctor I went to on New Year's Day said cold sores, gave me valtrex and mupiricin just in case he was wrong. Also told me to follow up with my primary as he wasn't equipped to take a sample and send it out for testing. Next day, my primary was closed, so I went to the clinic tied to his practice. That guy looked at it and said, nope, impetigo. Was able to extract enough fluid for a bacterial culture. Didn't have the equipment to do an HSV culture.
Avatar f tn I went to eye doctors and it was confirmed to be an infection. I was given Clindamycin antibiotics (3 parks of 60 capsules for 4x daily ) and a Prednisolon eye drop. The film cleared out and vision came back to usual at that point. Exactly a year later Feb 2016, this milky film came back with a lot of floaters and severe pain that even moving the eyes was very painful, and all the bones surrounding my eyes ached.
5264083 tn?1404669334 I was on 3 days of Cipro then had 1 shot of rocephin then the next day had two shots of rocephin (3 total) 10 days of Valtrex and 10 days of Clindamycin an had spotting for a day after the antibiotic (by period had just ended 5 days before Meds) an I was suppose to start around 7/11-7/13 and here it is 7/21 and nothing but have had cramps bloating acne break out and yesterday a tad bit of blood wen I wiped so I'm getting worried
Avatar f tn even though it is possible I don’t believe my husband has either and again he has no symptoms. now I am taking meds for herpes and I am not officially diagnosed with it. Friday Apr 30th-expressed small pimple located between the lip and the chin on the right side of face. Saturday May 1st –entire right side of jaw line & lower cheek swollen. Checked into ER, Doc states its Impetigo, due to infected pimple.
Avatar n tn Chronic Dermatitis can apparently really cause problems down there!! Since Clindamycin and Hydrocortizone suppositories are not as serious as using steroid creams, it seems worth a try for anyone whose Dr. can't figure this stuff out! best of luck..
Avatar m tn Has anyone had this before and stopped the progression through antibiotics or other means? It is all over my body and getting worse. I'm in a panic as no one in the U.S. seems to know what to do. I've read so much of the same information. I just want to know if it can truly be stopped and if dermatological procedures can help reduce the look of the atrophy and sunken spots. Without trying to sound rude, I am not looking for what it is how how it manifests. That I have l learned.
