I am taking Clindamycin 300mg, one every 8 hours to

I am taking Clindamycin 300mg, one every 8 hours to treat STREP throat. I have Psoriatric Arthritis so pain is common, usually in my knees. Treatment of the STREP started Thursday late afternoon. This morning I woke up with a lot of pain in my hips which has continued all day. Can this be a side effect of the Clindmycin?

I never have used this online info. I have had reactions to pennecilens/Cillens also Zpak and Compazine. I had a rash with both cillens and Z PAC ...with compazine for nausea ended up ER. (my doctor didn t believe I was having reaction to compazine and wrote me off... Which i was having swollen toungue and shaking--they injected some form of bebdryl) In saying that, now I have anxieties when prescribed any medications, which I feel ashamed to say. I do take Xanax for my agoraphia and panic attacks. Now to the appoint. My dentist prescribed Clindamycin 150mg. 2capsules 1st then1every six hours for absess in tooth. I am 64year old female weight 115 lbs. I am upset with myself for being afraid to take meds prescribed due to worry of side affects ...thankyou sorry for long email, Jennifer
