Been dealing with a sinus infection for 2 months. I have taken doxycycline and levaquin . I got somewhat better but it didnt completely go away . Went back to ENT and did another culture and CT and started on clindamycin. CT showed pansinusitis and alot of inflammation. The clindamycin is giving me alot of gas and bloating its been 4 days. I have been eating 2 yogurts a day . Got a call yesterday from ENT that the culture had grown corynbacterium species and that the lab hadnt sent the sensitivities so they recommended since the clindamycin was giving me stomach trouble to stop and wait till next week for sensitivities. I am afraid that if I stop and then clindamycin is the antibiotic of choice then i would have to start all over again. I am totally mentally and physically tired of all this and i am worried because the clindamycin has a black box warning for C diff. Has anybody ever taken clindamycin ? My doctor didnt say anything about probiotics but i thought by taking yogurt would help. Any suggestions concerning this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
