my dentist preceibed clindamycin for a tooth infection.
a year ago i had root canal done on #12 and cap. the dentist didnt take all the decay out so now it has to be extracted and get a bridge.
i am alergic too baxin, ceftin, augmentin, bactrim, levaquin,
well she said i shouldnt be allergic to clindamycin, but i read the phamplet that came wth it and it talked about fatal reactions from diahrea.
so long story short, because of having reactions to others i am terrified to take this. i tried for dentist to change it but her assistant was adamant about it. i havent taken it yet. its been two weeks i have been trying to decide.
is there an antibiotic i could recommend or a way i can tell her what i am feeeling, without annoying her
Hi! I recently had a root canal and was prescribed clindamycin too....I too have allergies to other antibiotics. The clindomycin did NOTHING and the infection got worse so now I am on CIPRO which was my own idea. I don't know if it is working 100% yet, but at least the infection has died down and I can tell it is helping......
