Okay so Wednesday I went into ER with a totally swollen jaw bottom left side because of a tooth abscess. Had CT scan no major issues they sad abscess is small, (doesn't look or feel small) So they put me on an IV drip in hospital with the clindamycin 600mg. They prescribed me clindamycin 300mg capsules to take every 6hrs for 10 days. Today is Friday and I haven't noticed any improvement, but no worse either. A little more pain and some gas and diarrhea... How long before people started seeing improvement?
I didn't have an abscess but I was on that same medicine bcuz I was having a tooth pulled but bcuz I was having sinus problems I ended up with a couple different problems. It took no more than two full days of taking this medicine before I noticed a difference. If u havnt noticed a change by the third day I wud call my doctor back or the sumone from the hospital ( I think u said that u went to the hospital for this?) good luck and I hope this helps! I certainly know what it's like to b n ur shoes!
