Clindamycin (Generic Cleocin)

Clindamycin is an antibiotic drug that doctors often prescribe to treat severe bacterial infections within the body. Clindamycin can be prescribed when the individual is allergic to penicillin or in cases in which other antibiotics have not worked.

Clindamycin is one of the lincosamide antibiotics that doctors prescribe to patients experiencing either anaerobic, staphylococcal, or streptococcal infections. The drug slows the infection by preventing the bacteria from multiplying further. Doctors may prescribe larger doses of clindamycin to kill bacteria, but only in specific cases.

If you are experiencing diarrhea while taking clindamycin, contact your doctor for further action. Clindamycin may cause an overgrowth of bacteria in the large intestine, which could develop colitis.

When Is Clindamycin Prescribed?

Clindamycin has several different applications and will be used to treat specific bacterial infections within the body. You may be prescribed this as an alternative treatment to penicillin if you are experiencing an infection in your blood, skin, lungs, internal organs, or female reproductive organs.

When taking your medicine, you should follow your doctor’s instructions. Unlike other antibiotics, this is not a medicine used for treating viral infections like a cold or cases of the flu. You may receive your antibiotics in a capsule or a liquid to be taken orally.

How Does Clindamycin Work?

Clindamycin is an antibiotic drug that is commonly used to treat multiple forms of bacterial infections. For cases that involve anaerobic, staphylococcal, and streptococcal bacteria, clindamycin is needed to slow down and prevent the spreading of the infection.

The antibiotic helps to prevent the harmful bacteria from multiplying without killing them. You will commonly be prescribed this drug to be taken orally in the form of a solution or capsule; however, in more serious cases – your condition may require you to have your antibiotics administered parenterally.

What Are the Side Effects of Clindamycin?

When using clindamycin, note that there are multiple side effects. You may experience one or more of the following:

  • Difficulty or painful swallowing
  • Discolored patches within the mouth
  • Heartburn
  • Irritation or swelling of the vagina
  • Joint pain
  • Metallic taste
  • Nausea
  • Unusual vaginal discharge
  • Vomiting

If any of these symptoms seem severe or do not go away quickly, contact your doctor immediately.

If you are experiencing any of the following side effects, you should seek emergency medical treatment:

  • Blisters or peeling skin
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Hives or rashes
  • Hoarseness when speaking
  • Yellowing skin and eyes

You may experience other unknown side effects while using this treatment, and you should consult your doctor if you have any concerns.

  • You should be sure never to take more than instructed by your doctor, and if you miss a dosage, you need to take it as soon as possible.
