Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (3 weeks ago):

  • Added clindamyacin 5 days after starting Bactrim DS for infection affecting area between ear and mandible. Moderate GI pain within 12 hours of clindamyacin, nausea and LOA lasting 3 days, improved after that. By day 5 sudden onset rash on upper body, rapidly spread to proximal upper extremities then proximal lower extremities and ultimately face, feet and lower extremities. Stopped clindamycin at onset rash, started Bendadryl, no effect. Started Hydroxyzine HCL 2 days after rash began, within 12 hours extreme exacerbation of shoulder tendonitis, shoulder joint pain and rotator cuff muscle pain. Extreme sleepiness with hydroxyzine at lowest dose, blurred vision and mild stomach upset. Pain in/around should worsened dramatically when increased to suggested dose of 2 pills at night.

  • From this study (5 months ago):

  • All of the symptoms I listed started after I began taking Ambien. I quit taking it after about 2 months. The symptoms have not gone away after 60 days.
