Eyelid abscess with cellulitis for one week. Dr Rx smz-tmp DS and clindamycin 4 days ago. Was ok until bactrim dose today and now very dizzy & nausea.

Bactrim side-effect: Bactrim (TMP/SMX) can cause neurologic side effects - so I would place the blame there. It's extremely important though to notify your doctor - the one who prescribed those antibiotics. Hopefully your infection is well treated enough where you can stop everything. There are plenty of other agents that could be used to fight an infection like that. Stopping before things get worse is important. ...Read more

My wisdom teeth were removed last thurs. I drank vicodyn & clindamycin& ibruprofen800 and zantax. I now have bloating, nausea at night, and gases. Help?

Side effects: If you're over a week out from the procedure, hopefully pain has subsided so that you won't need the vicodin or Ibuprofen much longer (if at all). Both these & Clindamycin can cause stomach upset. Vicodin can also slow your GI system down, resulting in constipation plus the symptoms you're having. Probiotics may help! Please discuss these & any ongoing pain control issues with your doctor. ...Read more

Virus? Allergy?: Most illnesses like this are due to viruses, not bacteria, and antibiotics are ineffective. Your doctor probably just gave them in hope they would help. If still no better, probably you have a prolonged viral infection or allergy. Contact your doctor to confirm and discuss other treatments. In the meantime, don't worry. Probably this isn't serious and will clear up on its own. ...Read more

Can I use clindamycin to treat shingles?

Can I use clindamycin to treat shingles?

Sorry it won't work: If you really have shingles, what you need is an antiviral medicine, not an antibiotic. Sometimes the shingles become infected since they are damaging the top layer of skin-so in that case an antibiotic might help, although I usually like something 'local' such as bacitracin ointment. You should call your doctor for an antiviral medicine-acyclovir, valacyclovir or famciclovir. Hope you feel better ...Read more
