From this study (1 year ago):
My doctor prescribed me this for 2 weeks, starting this medicine I immediately started getting leg pains at night (this is not something I have ever had before) 800 mg Motrin was not helping with the pain, after the first week I called them and told them it was becoming unbearable they told me "this happens sometimes" & to stop taking the medicine and drink lots of water with no other explanation to me about what the antibiotic was causing, I did what I was told and I stopped taking the medicine, two days later I broke out in a rash, this went away fairly quick. It has been about 3 weeks since I stopped the medication and I am still having pain especially at night, the doc prescribed me NAPROXEN (NAPROSYN) 500 MG TAB TABLET to help with pain, it's not helping at all, I am not getting ANY sleep. The doctors have run some test last week, my liver enzymes were up a bit so they tested me for Hep A, B, C they were all negative, I don't know if this antibiotic could have raised my levels and caused damage to my liver, I hope not, but they ran some more test and I should be getting my results soon.
Morgan on Dec, 10, 2012:
Female, Age 18. I have been perscribed Clindamycin for a tooth infection. The last two nights I have been waking up and experiencing extreme pain in two joints. The first night it was my knee, it felt like I had twisted it severely and the pain did not subside till twenty minutes later. The next night it was my wrist, same amount of time and same level of pain. I went back to bed after the pain subsided. I woke up in the morning, took a shower then started to feel an extreme itch in my hands. I have red tiny dots (rash) on both of my hands, every spot of palms, but not the other side of the hands. The rash also goes down a little further to my wrists on the sides of my palms. I've been putting cortizone cream on it, but it won't go away. It's extremely itchy, burns, and feels like my skin is being stretched. Any thoughts? please?
