- Clindamycin - vertigo and nausea
2 days in after starting on clendamycin for tooth infection I began having slight vertigo which steadily increased the next day. Nausea present with vomiting. I saw primary doc & I mentioned I was on this antibiotic which was told this could be the source of my problem and to stop taking medicine & consult w/my dentist. I have had 2 slight incidences with vertigo in the last 6 mos. which I assumed was happening not realizing it could be the clendamycin. I do not remember reading this interaction in the enclosed directions. Symptoms have pretty much resolved by today. I believe it was the clendamycin that caused this but have not hard proof
- Clindamycin induced clostridium difficile colitis (1 response)
Dentist prescribed 10 day prescription of Clindamycin for tooth ache, where a week after completing it, a near fatal CDiff infection developed. Renal failure and 3 weeks in hospital followed by 2 months of rehab. No probiotics were taken with the antibiotic. Vancomycin and Flagyl cured the CDiff infection.
Advice: DO NOT TAKE THIS DRUG, IT IS TOO DESTRUCTIVE!
- Post cleocin insomnia (1 response)
I HAD AN MRI DONE. THE TECH WAS ROUGH WITH THE IV ENTRY. I WAS INFECTED. I WAS PRESCRIBED CLEOCIN 300 MG 3 TIMES DAILY FOR 10 DAYS. BEFORE THE CLEOCIN I WAS A CHRONIC INSOMNIAC, BUT HAD IT UNDER CONTROL WITH BENADRYL. AFTER CLEOCIN, BENADRYL DID NOT WORK. I AM NOW STRUGGLING TO HOLD MY JOB.
- Oxybutynin chloride and chest pain
A urologist prescribed Vesicare (and Estrace cream) early in 2013 for urge incontinance. When hospitalized for cellulitis (never had it before) in May (2013), I took lots of I-V Clindamycin. The hospital had Ditropan on their formulary, and the urologist switched to it (it was cheaper)--and I continued taking Oxybutynin throughout the summer (2013).
Before 2013, I had had rare episodes of chest pain (not proven angina) no more than once a year. While on Vesicare and Dipropan, the frequency of chest pain increased to once a month, then once a week, then twice a week, then every other day (by late summer). In July I had a treadmill-EKG (with radioisotope) in USA and my family-practice-physician said it was normal and that my chest pain is NOT heart-related. He took me off Indocin and I have since quit taking Meloxicam and aspirin (no NSAIDs now). I returned to where I live overseas in early August and continued to have chest pain with increasing frequency. In the city where I live, it is too hot in the summer, and too cold in the winter. I saw an American doctor (overseas) in mid-August and my heart rate was irregular (I've never been told THAT before). My blood pressure is usually perfect, but this time my diastolic BP was the lowest it's ever been (about 50). My EKG was said to be normal (except slow rate). My normal pulse is about 60. The doctor said the low diastolic blood pressure was my body's way of helping me "beat the heat," and she suggested I lower the dosage of Oxybutynin from 15 mg daily to 10 mg daily--at least until the summer heat abated. [She was concerned about possible synergistic effect of anti-histamine (Claritin) and anti-cholinergic (Oxybutynin).] Having no return of urologic symptoms (which were severe a few months ago), I have since lowered the dosage of Oxybutynin from 10 mg daily to 5 mg daily.
I am 68 (had total thyroidectomy in 1978, 3 C-sections in the early 1980's, and two total knee replacement surgeries in 1998 and 2007). I had elevated anti-TPO in 2012 and a new dx of auto-immune thyroiditis early in 2013 (but 98% of my thyroid tissue was removed in 1978).
