Clindamycin is a prescription antibiotic that's been designed for treating a range of serious infections caused by bacteria. This drug should not be taken by patients with a history of an allergic reaction to lincomycin or Clindamycin itself. It should also never be combined with erythromycin (another antibiotic). You can buy Clindamycin 150 mg or 300 mg at an online pharmacy any time these days, but it's more important than ever to be sure this is the exact medicine you need. Clindamycin is intended for very serious infections only and should not be taken unless there is a concrete diagnosis calling for this specific antibiotic. Before you buy Clindamycin 150 mg or 300 mg, it's best to talk to your doctor and find out which dose you need to be taking and how often. That way, you will be able to buy the exact amount you need for the treatment not to run out in the middle of it. You need to take Clindamycin with a full glass of water, swallowing the medicine quickly to prevent it from irritating your throat. Just like any other antibiotic, Clindamycin needs to be taken for the entire length of time prescribed, even if your symptoms improve. Your doctor may need to see you often for blood tests. Your kidney and liver function may also require regular testing to make sure Clindamycin is working properly in your body and no dose adjustment is required. Clindamycin should not be shared with other people, as every single case is individual and may require different approach in terms of prescribing certain treatment.

Side Effects

Sometimes patients taking Clindamycin may develop side effects. Only a few percent of patients taking Clindamycin will get any side effects at all, and those will be mostly minor ones, such as mild nausea, heartburn, mild rash, joint pain, irritated throat or stomach pain. There is no need to worry in case any of those side effects occur, as they tend to be short-lived. If your minor side effects become worse or change in intensity, you should call your doctor and report the problem to make sure it's safe to keep taking Clindamycin.
