I am taking this medication for strep throat. This is my third round of RX. I first did amox, then augment, now clindamycin. I have to get my tonsils out very soon, so this is my last hope for strep to be gone! So far so good. My throat does not hurt, my side effects are hardly anything. When I have to go, I have to go.

Comment:
I started taking this drug on a Thursday for an infection in the gum around my crown. The tooth didn't hurt and was not bothering me but I had swelling in the gum. I felt fine until I starting taking this drug. My stomach hurt for hours after taking it and I felt almost like I had the flu. I took this for 2 1/2 days and started breaking out with a rash on my stomach, chest and arms. Called my ... Show Full Comment
