Cleocin IV


Comment from: chele, 35-44 on Treatment for less than 1 month (Patient) Published: March 24

This medication caused me to go into anaphylactic shock during surgery. I almost died. Thanks to the anasthesiologist and his knowing what to do and for God. I spent 24-48 hours in ICU.

I was given this IV after knee surgery, to prevent infection. 2 weeks later, I was diagnosed with C-diff, which took 2 rounds of another antibiotic to get rid of the symptoms.
