Clindamycin, hot flashes, sweating

Can Clindamycin cause mild hot flashes, and feeling of sweating? I looked at side effect list and it is not listed. ## Hello, Bec! How are you? Yes, it's normal for most medications to cause those types of symptoms and very commonly reported. The FDA lists the other side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. If it gets too severe, you should have things checked out by your doctor. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I have only today and tomorrow left on this medication for dental surgery. It has made me feel tired, and like I'm sweating. I was worried because I asked a few people who took the medication, and they said they didn't know, it didn't affect them this way.

Is Gimalxina Amoxicilina 500 mg from Mexico Counterfeit? i.e. Placebo?

I have taken amoxicilina many times during my life; bought in the US and in Honduras. This last week I got a bottle of 60 capsulas while in Cozumel, to complete my antibiotic treatment (I lost the previous amoxi I was taking). I am very familiar with the smell and taste of amoxicilina and penicillin. I open the capsules when I take it, it tastes bad, and has a unique taste & smell (also in urine). The current bottle I just purchased, red & white capsulas, is a white powder with NO taste nor smell. Furthermore, it appears to have no affect on my sinusitis, and NO odor in urine. This is the first Amoxi I have ever taken that is like this (no taste & no odor. So common sense tells me I HAVE BEEN ROBBED. If this is COUNTERFEIT Amoxi, we need to STOP ITS SALE. The bottle I have s...

Klion D 100

Do the pessaries work well alone? Or are they better with another tablet? ## I have been taking klion D for the past nine days, however the tenth tablet broke and is unusable. Would only doing the treatment for 9 days affect my treatment instead of the recommended 10 days? ## @patreece, I would suggest just sticking to Klion D on its own. If you were to combine anything at all, I think it should be a natural alternative such as an essential oil or herbal remedy, so that you don't have to be burdened with the additional side effects of another antibiotic prescription drug (which can take its toll on your system). @kim, In my opinion, I think 9 out of 10 days is sufficient enough that you shouldn't have to worry. Most antibiotics are only prescribed for 7-10 days anyways, so I don...

Please help - IBILEX 500

Hi. I have a huge open infected sebaceous cyst on my neck for which I was just given five days of Staphylex (4 a day). It’s still very big red and infected, so dr gave me IBILEX 500. The Staphylex made me nauseous and weak; do you think this one will do the same? I was hoping for Amoxil as it doesn’t give me bad reactions. To lessen my nausea symptoms, should I take IBILEX 500 with or without food, or before or after food?

Every 12 hours

I just got the pills but I've been forgetting to take them like when I first got them I took it at 12pm and fell asleep woke up and took it at 2am then at 2pm then I fell asleep and just took one at 7:20 and I'm gonna tap one at 7:20 tonight will it still be effective? ## What medication are you asking about? I am sorry, but I can't really provide an answer, without knowing this additional information, since some medications do require precise dosing, in order to be effective, but not all. For instance, while an antibiotic says to take it every 12 hours, and that would be ideal, you also don't have to set your alarm to wake up and take it, it can wait a few hours, until you wake up. On the other hand, oral contraceptives are a medication that you have to be as precise ab...
