I've been taking it for three days now and it's almost impossible to keep my eyes open, even after taking my Vyvanse prescribed to me for ADHD. Is this normal?
Hello nikuhdeemis. I researched your question. Fatique is not a side effect to taking Clindamycin. Nor is it a side effect to possibly taking the two (Vyvance and Clindamycin) Regards pledge
Hi nik, by your question, I believe that you have a pretty bad infection, and that is the reason you were prescribed clindamycin. It is a very strong antibiotic, but it does not make a person sleepy. I would guess that you have a serious infection that you are fighting in your body, and that is the reason you are exhausted. You need to give your body the rest that it is screaming for, to overcome this problem that you have. Best wishes to you!
I've had this infection from a tooth for a while. I just took this anti-biotic today. Andi am feeling very tired. My eyes want to close. So seeing how I've had the infection, it is not that making me tired. I haven't seen this listed as a side affect, but I drive for a living, and asked if it could make me tired. The dentist said that it is possible.
I don't care what the listed side effects of this drug may claim to be but I also have found it almost impossible to keep my eyes open since taking it.
I've been taking this antibiotic for about 4 days and I'm finding it hard to keep my eyes open and wanting to go to sleep. I've googled the side affects and its not listed. Which shocked me BC I thought for sure it was gonna be a side affect. I never feel/sleep this much.
Been sick for 2 weeks, taking this for 2 days. Was not sleepy until I started taking it...
I just started this medicine (150 mg 3x daily) yesterday. Today after taking the first dose I am extremely tired. I have dosed off at my desk maybe 6 times. I'm shocked that drowsiness is not listed as a side effect.
Yes, Clindamycin: Knocked me Out
And I have to Take Something for Sleep
I FeLt Like SUPER MAN
Took Clindamycin & Goodnight
Thank you for this thread. My son is taking Clindamycin and has been exhausted. I Googled its side effects and was getting scared because absolutely nowhere does it list fatigue as a side effect of Clindamycin when it clearly is. The manufacturer needs to update that. This thread put me at ease. Thanks again!
I started taking this yesterday and cant stay awake every time I take one im out like a light.
My response is the same as others: I also researched the side effects of Clindamycin and was frustratingly surprised that drowsiness or fatigue is not listed. I understand the infection in & of itself will cause strong fatigue - the bodys way of fighting the infection... Sleep promoting healing. That said, I've been on this antibiotic for several days; the infection is nearly gone and still, once I take it, not too long after I feel exhausted, very difficult keeping my eyes open. I feel pretty certain it IS a side effect.
I have a serious joint infection & cellulitis in my foot.penicillin did not work so they gave me Clindamycin 600 ml,yes 600 ml four times a day and I feel like the walking dead. There was no mention of tiredness by the Doctor but I think it’s clear that tiredness is a side affect. Regards Alan
I have been on this for ten days. I have never in my life taken an antibiotic that has made me feel so crappy. Tired, heartburn, the metal taste... everything. Sleepy is definitely a side effect that should be listed. I actually am being treated for cdiff another effect of this medication... so be careful! I wish I knew how bad it was, I’d have asked for a different antibiotic... also for my tooth.
I have been on clindamycin for 2 days treating a tooth infection. I am exhausted and can't stay awake. I'm not a napper, so I have no doubt it's from the med. Dull lingering headache as well. No mention of drowsiness anywhere as a side effect!
I have also been on Clindamycin for dental reasons, and it has also made me extremely tired. So many naps because it's been so hard to stay awake! I'm glad I found this thread!
