I took this medicine to prevent infection after pallet and nasal surgery. I developed C Diff two weeks after taking the medicine. The taste is horrible and was difficult to ingest.

This medicine killed all the good bacteria in my digestive system a ... Show Full Comment

I started taking this medication right after I had my wisdom teeth surgically removed. I have been taking Clindamycin for almost two days and I have to end use because it is causing extreme chest pain, dizziness, and also nausea. (Which I knew would happen.)

My daughter was prescribed this for resistance strep throat after being on amoxil for 10 days. This med. tastes awful! I tried hiding it in everything from ice cream to oatmeal. My daughter would vomit as soon as she took whether she took it in food or straight out of the syringe. This was an awful medication experience. I hope others have a better experience.

Comment:
I took this medicine for a tooth infection and after 3 days developed severe diarrhea, stomach cramps and vomiting to the point where I had to go to the emergency room for an IV. In my opinion this is a very dangerous drug and who knows how long it will take to get it out of my system. I had to stop taking it before the dose was completed - after 5 days off the drug I still feel awful.
