29 year old, Male - I was put on Clindamycin 300mg Cap Ranbaxy 1 every 8 hours - - I experience anxiety about an hour after taking this medication every time I take it. I have about 10 more pills to take and I dread taking them b/c of the feeling I get in my chest shortly afterwards. Anybody else experiencing this after taking Clindamycin?
