Clindamycin, Hot Flashes, Sweating

Bec Says:

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. But I really appreciate your reply! As I couldn't find the side effects I was having really listed. I feel the hot flash in my back and chest area only, it's very mild, with mild sweating, could this be heartburn? which is listed as a side effect. I have never experienced heartburn, so I do not know what it feels like.

Yes, I was taking Clindamycin for a tooth infection. Side effects I experienced were sweating, dizziness, mild diarrhea, red skin & tendonitis on my right foot. Clindamyacin also lowered my INR significantly.

I have a slight fever and flushed face. I stopped taking clindamycin after 3 days. Can you have a flushed face from clindamycin?
