My dentist has prescribed Clindamycin for an infection i have in my mouth. It has been swelling so I checked the Internet for side affects. It seems that only AIDS patients seemed to be linked to this drug. Is it possible that I was prescribed this particular drug because he suspects that I have AIDS?

Response from Dr. Young

Clindamycin is a widely prescribed broad spectrum antibiotic. There's no reason to suspect that the prescription of clindamycin comes with any baggage about your HIV status. BY
