I have a stye that has been getting worse; my eyelid is very swollen. Went to a clinic today and was told I had an infection. The doctor prescribed me some antibiotic eye drops as well as Clindamycin to be taken orally 3 times a day. Before I left he gave me an injection "to get things started". Now after reading of the potential side effects of Clindamycin, I'm afraid to take a pill. I know all antibiotics come with side effects, but Clindamycin appears to have serious ones that aren't uncommon. If I hadn't had the injection, I'd just not take them and not worry. Since I did have it, how likely am I to develop an antibiotic resistant infection if I never take a pill?
