    I was prescribed this strong antibiotic over the phone by the endodontist on call after my root canal the day earlier; I had severe pain in my tooth and jaw.

    I had a 30 yr. old root canal redone d/t an infection at the root per xray. The Dr. told me this would stir up the bacteria and to expect swelling, etc. He started me on Penicillin, and by Day 2 it was rapidly increasing in size and pain. I called him the next morning and he prescribed Clindamycin. I too felt a bit of GI discomfort, but tried always eating after the pills, taking a lot of liquids ... Show Full Comment

    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. 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. ... Show Full Comment
