From the time you took your last one, I would wait just a little past the 8 hours and then take the next one or you could cut it in 1/2 take one at the 8th hour and the other 8 hours later then get back on your reg dosage scheduling, you are shivering and having muscle fatigue/weakness and or pain because you took too much... my father who use to be fireman/parimedic said one night that i was feeling like that because i was taking too much of my med that my body couldn't handle going by my weight... recheck information with your md... and please don't take anymore until it is time and don't forget... we all slip up from time to time and the human body, well that is it's way of communicating to you no more until it's time... good luck... blaze22
Clindamycin can be taken at doses of 600mg every 6 to 8 hours apart. Wait until 8 hours past your last dose and go back to the recommended dosing schedule. If you are still having a reaction contact your doctor or pharmacy immediately as you maybe having an adverse reaction to the antibiotic not just having taken it too early.
