G & W 3171 pill
Post a Reply
Just wanted to know if I can use the G & W 3171 pill for a tooth infection? I have some left over from my doctor and I see a bump growing in my mouth. I'm pretty sure that's the infection forming by my tooth. I'm in a lot of pain and don't have time to go to a dentist. Can I use these in the meantime? Please help.

How long does clindamycin remain in your system after finishing treatment
17 Replies RSS
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 and benadryl
1 Reply RSS
I am now taking clindamycin for an infection and I have just come down with hives on my face. Can I take benadryl for the hives? ## According to the University of Maryland Medical Center (umm.edu / drug interaction tool), there are no interactions listed between Clindamycin and Benadryl. This doesn't necessarily mean that no interactions exist, so it may still be in your best interest to ask your doctor first, but I haven't found any information suggesting that it's unsafe to take the two together... I hope you get around to making a full recovery soon! Please post back if you have any updates on how things are going.

Is it used for an infection? Sore throat? ## Can you take clindamycin for a sore throat? ## Clindamycin is an antibiotic that's used to treat or prevent infections.

Clindamycin Refill Mistake?
4 Replies RSS
Tomorrow, I will be finished with a 10-day prescription of Clindamycin for a severe bacterial infection following a root canal. I noticed, long after I was taking them that the RX had one refill of another 10-day (3x daily) bottle. I called my dentist's office today and spoke only to the receptionist (long time grown woman - not a kid) and asked if that was an error at the pharmacy or were I to have it refilled and take it for another 10 days. She said yes and that was without hesitation, and I asked twice. The pharmacist at the drugstore agreed that a 10-day RX was unusual. My dentist is closed Friday through Sunday (and tomorrow is Friday). Is this typical - or was a mistake made? My infection 100% better (tennis ball size swelling just about gone, and I think I'll live. I mis...

17 Replies RSS
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. If ...

I was prescribed an antibiotic called clindamycin 300MG capsules for cellulitis in my left lower leg I am a Little bit confused about what times take my medication I have taken one at 9 AM and I think in the next one at 3 PM I would like to know what are the best times to take this medication on time and I like to know what are the best times to take them ## There are no real best times, you should just remain consistent and be sure take them as close to 6 hours apart as possible. So, for example, 9am, 3pm, 9pm, and 3am, or whatever times are appropriate. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, diarrhea, and non-allergic skin rash. Is there anything else I can help with?
