I have been on clindamycin for 5 days on a 7 day treatment 150 mgs 4 times per day for my tonsillitis. The antibiotic is taking my appetite away, causing stomach pains, fatigue, nausea and mild skin itching. Should I discontinue for the last 2 days and will the 5 days already taken get rid of the infection?

Response from Dr. Young

If I were you, I'd dry to get through the last couple of days of prescribed antibiotics. If you're having side effects, the best thing to do isn't to self-determine to prematurely stop, but rather to contact the prescribing doctor about any difficulties that you might be having. BY

Is it safe to take diet pills while I'm anemic?
