HOwever they did give me i believe 4ML of clindamycin before I left the ER in my muscle and I seem to have felt fine.

hello dear
thanks for your query at HCM
if you are given drug by IM route and your allergic you would have developed allergic symptoms then only,
now you can take drug orally.
clindamycin and amoxicillin are different group of antibiotics.
but after taking drug orally if have any symptoms of allergy visit doctor immediately.
