 2  Infection from ingrown toe nail I have a bad infection in my toe from an ingrown toe nail that has been getting worse for months. I was given this at the ER and from the podiatrist who removed the toe nail. This antibiotic gave me horrible anxiety attacks and very strange mental side effects. After reading everyone else's reviews I'm glad to see I'm not alone. The only reason I'm taking this antibiotic is because I'm allergic to all other antibiotics except this one. It gave me awful chest pains as well Be careful taking this if you have anxiety or mental health issues M 26 10 days
300 mg. 3X D
 5  Cellulitis of the knee Nausea, restlessness, extreme anxiety panic and headache I get repeated bouts of cellulitis, about twice a year. These side effects occurring every time and each time I can't figure out why I've become a sudden mental wreck. Then, when trying to remember other times when I've felt this way the common denominator in each incident is the medication!! It works for infection, but I wish there was a way to skip these horrible side effects! F 58 0 months

 1  Sinus Infection Anxiety, horrible indigestion, diarrhea, tiredness, weak, weird mental health issues like feeling drunk and not feeling right in my own skin. On day one and half of day two I felt okay. Then it hit me like a ton of bricks, I felt like the devil himself had taken over my body and I had entered the fiery depths of hell. I was barely able to function and felt as though I was unable to maintain. All I could think about was "get back to the sofa". I was tired beyond belief, felt "drunk?" and just not right. I was crying just watching a television commercial, ummm what? Like the trooper I thought I was, I carried on taking the medication. Then it hit me, the fiery heart attack feeling of the heartburn. I had read this from others prior to taking this and thought "nah, I can handle it"..... I couldn't handle it! I was on the verge of calling 911 thinking for sure I was experiencing a heart attack. What else could be causing this intense fiery hell in my chest? After drinking a fizzy carbonated beverage and taking about 10 Tums to attempt to sooth this. I dozed off from exhaustion only to wake the next day feeling like had drank liquid fire. To those of you who are questioning if I laid down after taking this, I did not, I propped myself straight up in a chair for an hour after each dose. If you decide to try and take this, I wish you all the best. Know going in to it that you'll be entering Mr Toad's Wild Ride, filled with twists, turns, up's and down's, diarrhea, severe heartburn, extreme anxiety and other odd mental health issues. M 58 3 days

 1  Tooth infection Extremely bad mental side effects. Derealisation/Depersonalisation, Extreme brain fog This drug has destroyed my life. I felt perfectly normal before taking it, and after the first day I felt this scary intoxicated high. Almost lost my job, couldn't take care of every day responsibilities. Doctor told me to continue . It has now been a month since taking it. Side affects have not worn off. I feel like I will never be the same person. I have extremely bad depersonalisation which has made me see the world in a different perspective. I can't look in the mirror. I fear I will never be the same. Please do not take this drug. Unless your life depends on it. Biggest regret of my life. I am not the person I was before taking it. F 21 6 days

 5  Tooth infection after dental proced Some nausea and vomiting but ONLY because I took it on an empty stomach and then worked out immediately after. Yes, this drug is strong; it HAS to be in order to effectively stop the very serious infections it is prescribed for. Looking at other reviews, the ppl taking this and complaining are nitwits. The side effects certainly outweigh potentially serious bacterial infections like tooth infections that easily allow bacteria entrance to the brain, MRSA, and other serious issues. This antibiotic is not the first one doctors select; it is used in conjunction with serious or specific infections that don't usually respond to other antibiotics. Stop whining about the side effects and no one telling you. Read the brochure every Rx comes with. Do your own research. It's your job, not your doctor's. Follow the very, very, very basic recommendations on the directions and warnings that come with the meds and you will be FINE. Half the ppl posting comments on here fail to realize their "side effects" are far more likely coming from the infection they had the med prescribed for, rather than the actual medication. The other half sound like they belong in the nut house with their issues. Follow directions and let the medicine do its job. Otherwise, stay sick and don't take the drug. Pretty simple. F 40 8 days

 1  Pelvic inflammatory Do not take this medicine if your life depends on it. I wrote a review while I was on the meds but it wasn't until the last day I developed a severe reaction to them and 3 nearly 4 weeks later I still feel like I'm dying. I am being tested for suspected vasculitis after taking this drug. The heartburn and intestine pain has still not gone. I have lost nearly a stone in a month. My body hurts in every single way possible. Muscle aches, joint pain, eye pain, light sensitivity severe headache everyday. This drug has ruined my life. F 30 12 days

 1  Possible post op infection Blurry vision, dizziness, faintness, feeling drunk or intoxicated, increased heart beat/ anxiety, extremely lethargic and couldn't work or take care of responsibilities. F 44 7 days

 5  Dental Mild stomach issues I always start with Prilosec OTC when starting this antibiotic. Always take this with food. Be sure to sit upright after taking this pill for one hour. Take it with a tall glass of water. Take a probiotic 2 hours after (Florastor is good) your dose. Continue the probiotic for one month after you finish. I also took lypospheric vitamin C as well. Been on this antibiotic 4 times now and never had any issues. Just never take this pill with too much (or too little) food or water and you should be ok. M 51 7 days

 1  MRSA Extreme nausea, cold tingling feeling going through my arms and head, no appetite, extreme headache, exhaustion, fatigue, constipation and I'm probably missing a sh*t ton. I thought I was going crazy until I read these reviews. I'm on day 2 after receiving IV antibiotics of another antibiotic in the hospital. This is awful! I'm running out of options but I think this is worse. I can't eat and the pain through my body after taking it isn't worth it. I still have 5 days left! F this! F 44 2 days
300 3X D
 2  Pelvic infection Scary to be honest but not as bad as the alternative metronidazole. Do not take if you have mental health problems especially panic disorder. First few days I just felt tired and had heartburn. Then only 2 days later I started having achy pain in my liver. Feeling of pressure in anal area. Depression, severe anxiety, chest pain breathlessness which felt like I had to manually breathe because it wasn't happening naturally. Felt like someone was sat on my chest. Itchy skin, hallucinations, confusion stabbing stomach pains. If the infection wasn't so severe I would stop this immediately but I am terrified not to clear this infection after having it severely for nearly 4 months and probably becoming Infertile. It's basically the lesser of two evils and not quite as bad as the reaction I had from metronidazole. F 30 7 days

CLINDAMYCIN HCL  (CLINDAMYCIN HYDROCHLORIDE):  Clindamycin is used to treat a wide variety of bacterial infections. It is an antibiotic that works by stopping the growth of bacteria. This antibiotic treats only bacterial infections. It will not work for virus infections (such as common cold, flu). Using any antibiotic when it is not needed can cause it to not work for future infections.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
