Cleocin
I was on Biaxin for a week prior to oral surgery.  the oral surgeon insisted in me taking Cleocin.  After two days I started having muscle spams and terrible lower stomach problems.  I am still ill with flu like symptoms and IBS.  Any feedback would be most apprecited.

Thank you.

Both Biaxin and Cleocin can cause abdominal pain, nausea, and diarrhea. Neither drug should be causing muscle spasms.
