The tooth extracted on December 6 had some infection and as a precaution I was given Clindamycin.
Shortly after finishing the prescription, I started having diarrhea. I went to the doctor on Jan 8 and had a series of lab tests including a stool sample which showed that I had contracted C. Diff toxin (Clostridium difficile). The doctor thinks the Clindamycin was the cause. I was then given Metronidazole to treat the C. Diff. I have been very sick and lost 18 lbs during this ordeal. Please mark my records "Do not prescribe Clindamycin". Please remove any references to avoid other antibiotics. Thanks, Ralph Cox
