Clindamycin is a semi-synthetic lincosamide antibiotic that is used to treat numerous infections caused by bacteria.
Medical specialists usually prescribe Clindamycin to treat infections caused by susceptible anaerobic bacteria. It can also be used to treat respiratory tract, soft tissue, and skin infections as well as bacterial vaginosis, gangrenous pyomyositis, and pelvic inflammatory disease.
Clindamycin is available to order under the brand of Cleocin, but there are a lot of cheaper generic alternatives available at pharmacies. Clindamycin can be obtained in various forms such as capsules, granules for the solution, and injections.
Remember that Clindamycin will not treat virus infections, because like any other antibiotic it cant kill viruses. Treatment with Clindamycin can lead to severe colitis, that’s why it should be reserved only for severe infections.
