After my dentist up the dosage of Clindamycin from 150mg (1pill) 4 times a day to 300mg (2pills) 3 times a day, I started to itch but only at night and i would wake up with hives on my upper chest and arms only. Would I be allergic to the Clindamycin?
Is Azithromycin and Clindamycin in the same category? I'm allergic to azithromycin?

Although they are different drug classes, I suggest you contact your Dr. asap, I think you are having an allergic reaction to Clindamycin.
Azithromycin belongs to the drug of class macrolides and Clindamycin to the drug class of lincomycin derivatives.
