Discussions that mention clindamycin

General Health board


WOW ... THANKS SO MUCH TO ALL OF YOUR KINDNESS and ADVICE !!!!
I appreciate it ENOUMOUSLY :-)

I did see a doctor finally and he told me that I really needed to take ANTIBIOTICS especially because an infection in any part of the hand can spread QUICKLY he stated !!! ... THAT SCARED ME ... SO I DID START THE ANTIBIOTICS WHICH I REALLY HATE TO TAKE ... They are called CLINDAMYCIN 300MG ... Anybody ever take them ??? ... My dosage is 3x per day, with FOOD !!! ... HOPEFULLY it won't upset my liver and/or intestines, I'm worried about that :-( ...

HOWEVER, I also went to talk to a wonderful lady at a natural products store who gave me ACIDOPHILUS tablets to take 2x everysingle morning BEFORE breakfast ... I also have been drinking chlorophlle everysingle morning since about 5 years now, it's a BLOOD PURIFIER ... and finally she told me to switch to CONCENTRATED GRAPEFRUIT EXTRACT as a topical solution... instead of ********* oil which i was using) ... I did and the nail seems to be looking better ... I can't wait to get off these ANTIBIOTICS !!!!
I'M REALLY AM AGAINST THEM but u know sometimes conventional doctors DO have their place ... cause an INFECTION is not a good sign anywhere in the body ... and at times ANTIBIOTICS are the only solution ...

What do people out there think ??? PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF ANYBODY HAS TRIED OTHER WAYS TO GET RID OF AN INFECTION INSTEAD OF ANTIBIOTICS ??? THANKS SO VERY VERY MUCH !!!!!!!

I am on 300mg 4 times a day for Osteomylitis of the Jaw. It is a pretty strong Antibiotic. In fact if this doesnt work, I will bo on IV antibiotics next. Anyway, the only intestinal issue is diarrhea(sp). If you develop that, call you MD right away and stop taking the meds. It is not something to mess around with. Good Luck and I hope all goes well.

P.S. I have used Vicks Vaporub for nail fungus. Works great....just ignore the stares and sniffing noses when y :) ou walk by people..LOL LOL
