Thank you for the input.
I am very sorry for your symptoms.
Clindamycin takes 12-15 hours to get it completely out of the body.
Please try to take plenty of fluid & electrolytes like oral rehydration fluid, gatorade.
This would prevent dehydration.
You can take yogurt with lactobacilli in it.
This would restore the balance of flora in GI tract.

I hope those would help.

Tylenol can help in aches.
If the symptom continues, I would advise to take an examination by doctor.

Doctor can take a stool test to check for an infection.
I hope this information will be helpful.
If you have any query, please feel free to ask.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
