Avatar f tn who was disciplined by his state medical board for overdiagnosing and overtreating Lyme patients, and then sued by BCBS for $100 million. He was a highly regarded and recognized AIDS/HIV doc before he started treating Lyme. He had to declare bankruptcy and shut down. (He had actively tried to get the IDSA to change their polIcies on Lyme, and this is what happened to him. Seems the IDSA will not tolerate dissent from within.
Avatar m tn Since subsequent herxes on anti-Babesia meds produced the same effect on me, I think my Clindamycin herx was about Babesia, not Lyme. Clindamycin made my hair start falling out. It also made my teeth a bit gray, but it seems to have cleared up after switching out to a different med. Hopefully you won't have these side effects and you'll start feeling better. Give the treatment a chance to start working.
Avatar f tn Levaquin, there are some intracellulars that also work against Bart, such as the Biaxin/Plaquenil combo and Clindamycin. The headache on Clindamycin could have been a Lyme herx, but it could also have been a Bart herx. I mention this to say you don't have to suffer with chronic stomach pain on Rifampin indefinitely. There are other options if it doesn't go away. I am very glad to hear it's working! At least you can give your doc credit for being willing to learn.
Avatar f tn So my LLMD has me on the following medications: Amoxicillin, Clindamycin, and Capadex (for my stomach problems). My dosage of the antibiotics are very high and I will be taking it for about 2 months. He believes I may H pyelori as well as Lymes because of my reoccurring ulcers. I am getting a more sensitive test for h Pyelori as well. I am also taking or about to Amrix for muscle pain. Has anyone taken this?
798555 tn?1292787551 My symptoms have gotten significantly worse since starting doxy and I was retested for Lyme a week and 1/2 ago by my super-doubtful Hopkins intern. He said the lyme test came back negative, which I've heard before, so until I actually see the test results I'm taking what he says with 'a dose of doxy'. Anyway, I still have yet to be diagnosed by an LLMD, so In all honesty I'm shooting in the dark against whatever is wrong with me.
4451049 tn?1387153437 So I recently tested positive for Bartonella and Babesia. Also positive for Anaplama, mycoplasma pneumonia, and of course - Lyme. Treatment is making me feel so bad. And it doesn't go away as you may expect of a herxheimer. I'm on Clindamycin now and I'm pretty sure this one is doing some killing, not just side effects. I've been giving in on a lot of medications, mainly due to unacceptable side effects.
Avatar f tn After another round of tests and a visit to my LLMD, he pronounced my kidneys "back to normal." Yay!! He upped my dose of clindamycin and said in a month to switch to doxy. He wanted to wait until we're further into fall weather as I am very fair skinned. First time I will have taken doxy, and it'll be just shy of a year from diagnosis. I feel every dosage increase and new antibiotic I take.
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 t seem to have problems with doxycycline, amoxicillin or clindamycin. Clindamycin destroys my stomach though. I avoid cipro and zithromax.
948202 tn?1245941816 Also, i use clindamycin phosphate lotion to prevent breakouts during the day. If i add this underneath the clindamycin, will it stop the clindamycin from working? Will the serum cause breakouts? It says it is for all skin types. Should i maybe use the hydrating complex after i use the clindamycin? I am 24 yr old female still experiencing some breakouts. I have not had any breakous for about 2 months since using clindamycin during the day, and sulfacetamide at night.
Avatar n tn I have two failed implants due to infection which did not respond to Clindamycin. I also got a bad reaction to Clindamycin a feeling of big lump in throat, sore throat and severe heartburn. In spite of the fact that I drank at least 10ounces of water with each pill. My question is since I'm allergic to penicillin. What antibiotic is effective for teeth and gum infections???? Thank you.
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 n tn Is an excruciating headache a sign of a reaction to clindamycin? I can't take it anymore, and my CT scan came back clean. I'm on the antibiotic as a preventative measure after sinus surgery (I'm about a week out). There's no infection, and all the drainage, etc. is normal.
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...
Avatar f tn I have been prescribed Clindamycin to clear up a possible tooth infection. I was wondering if anyone has had any heart rhythm problems attributed to antibiotics. I have pvcs/pacs, all tests, ekg, echo has come back completely normal. Im just worried about taking a new medication,, afraid it may cause the palpitations to be worse, better yet cause a dangerous arrythmia!! Any advice would be great!!
Avatar m tn ) On the other hand, would I endanger my health by taking the Clindamycin after so many other recent antibiotic courses (including 16 days of Clindamycin in September)?
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 n tn For the last week I have had a severe rash on my face, neck, chest and back that comes and goes. It is worst in the morning and evening, after I shower - or when I become stressed/anxious - this is when white heads appear on many of the red bumps. It itches and at times makes my skin feel "crawly." This began 5 days after taking Clindamycin for a staph infection (caused by a bug bite). (The day before taking the Clindamycin I had been on Nitrofuroin for a UTI.
Avatar n tn Can i take clindamycin with my levothyroxin 75mcg . Because i have a sore throat and runny nose ?
Avatar m tn About 5 weeks ago I had all four of my wisdom teeth removed, and the oral surgeon prescribed me Clindamycin to prevent infection. A day or two after I finished my prescription I noticed that I wiped up a little blood on the toilet paper after going to the bathroom. I looked it up on the internet, and it said blood from the rectum could possibly be due to antibiotics, so I thought no big deal. I was also taking Ibuprofin and Vicodin for pain during the antibiotics.
72351 tn?1281992542 it does sound like an infection, but in my opinion, it is too risky to give the baby the clindamycin w/ out taking him/her to the vet. Way too risky and clindamycin might not be the correct antibiotic for the kitten's problem. Please come back w/ an update. Wishing the best for the kitten.
Avatar m tn Because I have an artificial joint I take 600mg of Clindamycin Prior to dental work. I han root canal done on a tooth under a permanent bridge a year ago by a General Dentist. One hour start to finish. It was infected, but I was never given any additional antibiotics. Since that time had an ongoing foul taste and odor when I used Water Flosser daily. The adjacent tooth became infected and also required a root canal. This time done by an Endadontist.
1212365 tn?1329968536 My daughter of 2yrs old has cellulitis and the DR. prescribed her clindamycin she started this treatment 3days ago and all of a sudden her hair is starting to fall out. I tried looking for the side effects but it was telling me basic stuff and it stated that it had more to it I just needed to ask a doctor. So now I'm asking....
Avatar m tn I recently had a wisdom tooth extraction and was prescribed Clindamycin to prevent the extraction area from becoming infected. I was prescribed this medication on 5/28/2014. I was directed to take it 3x a day until it was all gone. I took it for about a week straight. I noticed while I was on the medication that I had very severe episodes of diarrhea and stomach cramping. I stopped taking the medication as of yesterday.
