Question Can antibiotics cause an orange tongue?

Recently my doctor put me on 200mg of Clindamyacin per day for folliculitis. I have been taking it for about a week and noticed a few days ago that the back and middle of my tongue appear to be covered in an orange coating; the very back of my tongue also has some white film, and while it feels as though my tongue has been coated and my breath is feeling a little funky, nothing hurts and there is no swelling, so I don't think it is thrush. Any ideas if the antibiotics are causing it and, if so, what can I do about it? Thanks, all!
