I'm having bad skeletal pain can this be caused by clindamycin?
Hi sleepy sweet pea! Welcome to the site.
Yes, clindamycin can cause joint pain. This is a common side effect that will go away once you finish your treatment cycle. If, however, you pain worsens or you develop redness or swelling in your joints, inform your doctor. He might want to switch you to a different antibiotic. Feel better!
