Heart Burn on Clindahexal 150mg

My doc put me on Clindahexal 150mg, 2 caps twice a day for 5 days, its now 8 days later. Since i started the tablets ive been experencing really bad heart burn, sometimes i dont even have to drink or eat. Ive been taking Gaviscon and Rennies but they dont seem to help...
My question is:
Can this cause heart burn? or is it now an ulcer? what can i do to take away this pain?

Please help me.

I have been taking Clindahexal a day only and the day after I had started, my whole body was covered in a rash. I have to take the tablets twice a day for five days. Is it a normal reaction and can I proceed using the meds?

This is a horrible drug. Two capsules gave me the worst attack of indigestion I've ever had and the discomfort lasted two days. I stopped after the first dose.

I have the same experience and it also makes me feel really sick. The doctor has advised that I should stop it immediately.
