I have a sinus infection. I went to my doctor and he prescribed Clindamycin, I came home and took the medication but found I was allergic to it. I went to the ER because my doctor is now on vacation they prescribed Clarithromycin, Is this the same type of antibiotic? I am now scared to take anything that might be the one I was allergic too.
I have had a serious allergic reaction to cephalexin (lost the use of my legs), also got the same reaction from another antibiotic while in hospital, so should I worry about taking clindamycin? I also get asthma occasionally and have other allergies. I also have atrial fibrillatiom and take meds for that.
What antibiotics can be used as an alternative to clindamycin? I am allergic to penicillin and many of the mycin drugs. I have had what was called z-pack (the time release med) and didn t have problems with it. It was prescribed due to an irrigation of an abcessed tooth. I take meds for ulcerative colitis and fear, after reading about the clindamycin, it is not going to work well. I sm going out of town tomorrow for several days and don t want to have to worry about the possibility of extreme diarrhea. Alternative suggestions, PLEASE.

I took Clindamycin HCL 300 MG Caps for 7 days. A few days later I got a red flat rash on my chest, & on my lower legs. Is this from the Clindamycin? Also, will it go away by itself, or do I need to take anything? It doesn t itch or hurt. But my ankles are a little swollen.
