2 weeks ago i was put on clindamycin 4 times a day for chest infection.i know this is not the front line antibiotics for chest infection but i am allergic to most antibiotics which give me chest pain.i had chest pain already with the infection but after 4 days i had to discontinue it because still had chest pains.another trip to docs saw that infection had gone..after 2 or 3 days of starting with it i got diahorea but expected that but i stopped the course on sunday and still have the diahorea on thursday.
went to speak to the pharmcist yesterday ..she told me to go to the hospital as clindmycin can cause c diff and other bowel problems.she frighten the life out of me..went to the hospital and the doc i saw said was ok..he took blood pressure and felt stomach..diahorea semi solid but still tummy irritation and scared to eat anything..ive been taking probiotics as from yesterday..can anyone tell me how long this is likely to last..im not going as much as i was i stop the course sunday and its now friday.am also worried that i still might get the cdiff or other related problems to this antibiotic..doc said blood pressure and pulse normal which is a good indication that no problems.
any advice would be great
