I was treated with root canal/abcess, and given rx for this and allowed to take pre-existing pennicillin (referring denist prescr.). I started this one yesterday evening, and I can't take it anymore. Strong acid, nausea, and I did notice some itching starting last night. The endodonist said it can cause GI problems, and just to stop taking it immediately if it did, continue with Pen. ...

I was prescribed this medication by my dentist after having a broken tooth pulled. 4 times/day for 7 days. I quit taking the medication 4 days into it because of severe diahrea and heartburn. Two weeks have passed and I am still having diahrea, stomach cramps and heartburn. I will never take this medication again!

Comment:
After an abscess formed in a recent root canal, Clindamycin HCL was prescribed as an antibiotic. I took four doses and noticed a red rash forming down the front of my neck and upper chest. I started developing a mild headache as well. None of the swelling from the abscess had decreased. I called my endodontist, and he took me right off of it. I'm glad I called him when I did.

Two the day after I began taking this drug I experienced muscle spasms in my lower back. The pain level went to a 7 on a 10 scale. I notified my clinician and stopped taking the drug. It took my 5 days of treatment with nsaids to solve the problem. Never again!!
