Customer Question

Hi, I had my gallbladder taken out 4 years ago, after being in hospital 4 days because my liver and pancreas enzymes were so high. I've had issues similiar to what is called dumping syndrome off and on. My question is if was recently given clindamycin 300mg 3x day for a unrelated issue. Is it safe to take it with a side effect being elevated liver enzymes

Hi! I'm Dr. Bridget. I appreciate your patience as I prepare my answer for you. Please stand by...

Thanks for waiting. You will be ok using Clindamycin. Because you do not have active liver disease at this time, there should be no concerns with elevated liver enzymes. Also, there have been no reported cases of elevated liver enzymes at the dose you have been prescribed.

Please feel free to ask any further questions or reply with comments. I am committed to getting all of your issues resolved to your satisfaction.

If you're all set though, a positive rating is very much appreciated. Thank you!
