Cindamycin usually doesn't have a side effect of feeling hot. Any other unusual symptoms such as rashes, itches, more difficulty breathing, etc?
I would discontinue the antibiotics for now and wait for another prescription. Continue to rinse the area out. Brush the area well and try to keep it as clean as possible.
No I didnt have any other symptoms, just the feeling hot. It is finally starting to go away a little. My stomach started hurting last night for hours and I had a bit of diarrhea this morning.I still have not heard from the dentist but I will just cal him tomorrow and request a different antibiotic. I have had this medication a few times before and never noticed the hot feeling, I dont know why I would have a problem with it now. Does it sound like an allergic reaction?
I just remembered that I had a lot of itching last night while I was asleep, but that was more then 24 hours since the last dose. I do not know if the 2 are related.
Its definitely possible. I would avoid the antibiotic for now and wait for a new prescription.
I am sorry to bother again. I called the dentist today and explained what happened, the dentist advised me to continue taking the medication. He says that it may be an averse reaction but does not feel that its is allergy related nor dangerous? They told me that being allergic to pencillen that the Clindamycin was my only option. I do not feel comfortable with this though I do not want the infection to kill me either. In your medical opinion should I seek another dentist for 2nd opinion or proceed with the medication?
You should go look up this drug in Wikipedia. My brother-in-law just spend 2 days in the
hospital after being given this drug by his dentist for an absessed tooth. It really hurt him.
He is home now but still has diarrhea and stomach pain.
