I don't know why people bash antibotics so harshly. Maybe you should understand exactly what they are before thinking that all medicine is going to make you feel better. I had a serious infection from one of my wisdom teeth and needed to be put on this immediately. I guess I'm one of those people that understand that this is a short time medication 7 days max and unless I have a bad reacti ... Show Full Comment

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.

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.
