Clindamycin and joint/muscle aches

Hi, I've been on Clindamycin 150mg x3, 3 times a day to treat SI Joint MRSA. I've taken this for 11months. I started jogging (I use to be an elite marathon runner) 3 months ago. No problems.. just the typical shin splints and common running injuries. During the past month I'm experiencing weakness in legs and extream soreness in my calf muscles, to a degree that I can only walk for 10min. My hospital checkups are 3months apart and I'm supposed to be on antibiotics for at least 1yr. I've decided to stop taking antibiotics yesterday, due to the pain. I've read on forums of cases that Clindamycin can cause muscular and joint pain. Is this true?? ## Hello, Tracey! How are you? Yes, the FDA does list muscle and joint pain as being possible side effects of this antibio...

Does clindamycin hcl have an expiration date

I have clindamycin hcl from 2008. Is it safe to take? ## Have clindamycin 150 mg cap from 1/07/2009, is it still safe to use? ## i have clindamycin 150mg kept in refrigerator is it still good?03/04/09 ## To cover these questions for other site users that may need to know the same information. If they the capsules have been in a bottle that was dispensed by your pharmacy, which exposed them to the elements, they have an expiration date of one year from the date you received them. After that time, they will start to degrade and will no longer be as effective. At that point, it's best to dispose of them, due to the risk of developing antibiotic resistance if you take them. Millie, were you asking about a liquid formulation? If so, those are only good for a week, they degrade very fast....

does the antibiotic clindamycin work for nrsa staph infection

I am taking clindamycin for nrsa staph infection of my leg, will this treatment cure me of staph infection ? ## Hi, Barry! Sorry about the infection, I hope it clears up fast. And yes, many strains of MRSA are still susceptible to Clindamycin, but it is becoming increasingly resistant. Thus, there's really no way to say if it's going to work for the infection you have. The only thing you can do is try it and see. Learn more Clindamcyin details here. It may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. To know if it's working, you shouldn't see any worsening of the infection after the first 24 hours of taking it and you should start to see improvement after 3 days, if not you'll need to contact your doctor. Are there any other que...
