I have a dental appointment this afternoon. My dentist's office called this morning and said that they had talked to my orthopedist, who says I need antibiotics for dental work because of the implant in my shoulder. Great! One more thing to worry about
They of course were going to order Amoxicillin before and after for me. I explained that I don't take cillins or cyclines because of my UC. She said "Oh, you're allergic?" I said "No, actually they give me bloody diarrhea." "OH!" she said, and hung up to talk to the doctor. End of story: he prescribed one large dose of clindomycin to be taken before the appointment, nothing after.
Always ask what you're being given and speak up to protect yourself. I should be fine with this, I'll take an extra probiotic at bedtime and I'll be very surprised if I have any problems.
