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.

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.
