How long does clindamycin remain in your system after finishing treatment

I am finishing a 7 day dose of clindamycin 300 mg taken once every 8 hours on Friday, which leaves me with no weekend coverage if dental infection isn't gone. My dentist told me yesterday that it can remain in my system for awhile, is this true? If so, for how long? ## Hello, Jana! How are you? Yes, that is correct. However, how is the infection doing? If the antibiotic is working, there should be no worsening after being on it for a full 24 hours and you should start to see some improvement after taking it for a full 3 days. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. ## I had a severe headache with flushed feeling after taking clindesse vaginally.never again bad drug ## Took clind...

Clindamycin excretion rate
1 Reply RSS
I have read every question and reply on this forum and not one time does it mention how long it takes for this particular antibiotic to leave your system. I took three 150mg doses yesterday. How long will these three doses of Clindamycin remain in my body? ## In most cases, people ask such questions about controlled substances that they are concerned about being detected, so most don't ask about benign substances, such as antibiotics. The general full elimination time listed by the FDA for Clindamycin is 20 to 24 hours. However, if you have experienced an allergic reaction, or other problematic side effects, they may still continue for several days after stopping it. is there anything else I can help with?

Can I take clindamycin 450mg three times a day if I have advanced copd? It has been given for an abscess in my mouth. ## You should take the medication as prescribed, it is far more risky to let the infection rage out of control, than to take the medications. The U.S. FDA lists the typical side effects of this antibiotic as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash, and diarrhea. Are you on any other medications? ## I have a history of heavy asthma. I'm taking deriphyline 150, monteluskasta 10, levocetzin, astalin puf. and flusal 125 puf. This medicine is all prescribed by my doctor. Can antibiotics also help with asthma?

Can Clindamycin also be used for an abscessed tooth? I was given this for a staph infection and then my antibiotic had to be changed so i have some left.
