Antibiotics after ROOT CANAL treatment making me sick, Is there any homeopathy alternative?


I had root canal treatment on jan 2nd. The root canl were cleaned and dentist put temporary filling.

After treatment my dentist told I have to take pain medication before the anestesia wears off. But I didn't get much pain. She said I have to finish the antibiotics course. which is clindamycin 150 mg capsules. Every six hours 2 caps.

After taking anti biotics my apetite decreased and I have nausea. I vomited one time and mild diarhea is also there. I don't want to take them anymore.

Is there any alternative in homeopathy?

Thanks in advance.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
I'm confused: Your dentist said you needed to take pain medication, but gave you antibiotics instead? Is that correct?

Do a search using google on clindamycin. You will find many good sites. You will learn what the side-effects are. These include what you have mentioned.

I suggest that you go back to your dentist (or is that doctor?) and seek further advice. Discuss alternative treatment.

Dentist prescribed both. But since i didn't have pain I didn't take Pain medication. Dentist said i have to finish the whole bottle. 2 capsules, every six hours for 7 days.


The farmacy gave me the information on Clindamycin. I will go thru web sites too.

Arnica/Hypericum are probable remedies.

there is not always need of antibiotic if the dentist is confident enough nd u can rely on his professional skills. i had dental filling and there wasnt presciption of it .again i had scaling no such prescription, but when i 'changed' dentist he gave me the antibiotics . all depends on the dentist u r visiting.

The dentists may have actually seen some infection in and under your tooth, which is probably why you had the root canal in the first place (the toothache).

Homeopathic medicines will take care of infections too.

I finished all of my antibiotics (Clindamycin 150 mg) 4 days ago. Still My stool is not back to normal. I feel very urgent suddenly. Loose stools with little mucus. (small strings)
Daily atleast 3 times.

Today suddenly I observed my toungue coated white and there are big cracks on my tongue. It looks horrible.

Any remedies for this condition?

Clindamycin is an unusual antibiotic and one that is often used in dentistry. I've seen clients need 3-4 weeks for it to clear out of the system. Honestly, your symptoms seem related to the antibiotic and rather than trying to use homeopathics, I'd see if your system clears it out over a few weeks. Homeopathics are not like allopathic medicine - you don't take something for something, you take something to clear a full individual case. Also, nowadays, antibiotics after dental visits has become in my opinion too commonplace.

Also, you might want to eliminate sugars from your diet while you are clearing out, that should help the yeast on your tongue.

Best of luck.
