Has anyone developed a bad case of hiccups while taking clindamycin 300mg capsules?

I took 600 mg starting dose of cleocin (Clindamycin) for a dental procedure due to prior heart attack with no side effects. For a followup root canal I took the 600 mg starting dose. I noticed I was burping much more than normal. After another 300 mg dose I shortly developed persistent hiccups that interfered with sleeping and resumed on waking.

Many medications can cause hiccups, since this one can cause stomach upset, it is more likely to cause hiccups. If the digestive tract is upset for any length of time, you can get hiccups. This antibiotic medicine is really strong, if you are having alot of side effects from it, please let your doctor know.

This is a list of possible eide effects for future refernce, hiccups is not one ot them.

The following side effects may go away as your body becomes used to the medicine; check with your doctor if they continue or become bothersome.

Side effects that you should report to your doctor or Doctor as soon as possible:

allergic reactions like skin rash, itching or hives, swelling of the face, lips, or tongue
dark urine
pain on swallowing
redness, blistering, peeling or loosening of the skin, including inside the mouth

unusually weak or tired
yellowing of eyes or skin

Side effects that usually do not require medical attention (report to your dcotor if they continue or are bothersome):

I hope this information helps you. Contact your doctor with regards to th hiccups... take care.
