Husband hands started itching severely and a couple hours later his mouth was swollen real bad. Went to ER and was told he was having a reaction to blood pressure meds. However when we got home I checked and my Clindamycin was with his meds. We think he might have taken one by mistake.
You'll want to discuss this with a physician, and if the reaction is still going on with the emergency room by calling 911. To stop a reaction of an allergic type nature a variety of treatments are needed including intravenous corticosteroids and antihistamines. For some types of drugs other methods are used depending on when the drug was taken. Please seek medical advice of a professional who can review all the information together.
