    My son was prescribed this by his dentist for a persistent tooth/gum infection. He developed a red rash ALL OVER his entire body. Stopped treatment immediately.

    IF YOU CAN TAKE ANYTHING ELSE - DO NOT TAKE THIS!!! I was put on Cleocin for a tooth infection, I don’t know if it worked or if the root canal is what fixed my tooth. I do know that I had the worst heartburn and nastiest taste in my mouth ever - so I stopped taking it 2 days early. I stopped taking it on Wednesday, when I woke up Saturday morning I was covered head to toe in itchy red welts &am ... Show Full Comment

    After a simple wisdom tooth extraction, my Dentist prescribed Cleocin 150mg. After the first day, I developed horrible stomach aches, then unbearable heartburn, to the point is was hard to swallow even a sip of water. I called the pharmacy, and indeed this drug can cause these symptoms, and has even killed people. Don't risk it, it really hurt me! I hope to revover soon.

    I had post operative infection after bunionectomy. Though I've had trouble with antibiotics before the surgeon prescribed Cleocin. A few days after I finished meds, I started having bloody diarrhea. I had a bad feeling from just reading the "warning sheet" that comes with this stuff. I had C-diff.
