Once we have received the signed application and supporting documents, we will submit them to the patient assistance program on your behalf.

What is Cleocin?

Cleocin (Cleocin HCL) is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Pfizer. Cleocin is an antibiotic available in several forms. It is used orally for the treatment of various bacterial infections. It is also used vaginally to treat infections such as bacterial vaginosis, and topically (on the skin) to treat acne.

Cleocin is also used to treat serious infections due to strains of streptococci, pneumococci, and staphylococci susceptible to clindamycin. It should be used only for penicillin-allergic patients or for patients where penicillin used is not advised.

What doses of Cleocin are available?

Cleocin is available as capsules, oral solution, injection, topical solution, or as a vaginal cream.

Take Cleocin capsules with a full glass of water to prevent it from irritating your throat. Use Cleocin as directed by your doctor for the full prescribed length of time, even if your symptoms improve. Cleocin will not treat a viral infection or the symptoms of flu or a common cold and as such is not recommended for these medical conditions.

If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. If it is near the time of your next dose, skip the missed dose and take your next dose at the usual time. Skipping or missing doses may increase your risk of infection that is resistant to medication.

Store Cleocin at room temperature away from moisture and heat. Do not store the oral liquid in the refrigerator. Please read the drug information provided with your medicine and always speak with a healthcare professional for medical advice about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.

Cleocin active ingredients

Cleocin contains clindamycin hydrochloride, a lincosamide antibiotic, as the active ingredient.

Cleocin side effects

The most common side effects of Cleocin in clinical trials include:

  • Nausea, vomiting, stomach pain
  • Mild skin rash
  • Vaginal itching or discharge

In rare instances, Cleocin can cause more serious side effects. These can include:

  • Serious, life-threatening intestinal problems due to a bacteria called Clostridium difficile (C. difficile) -associated diarrhea (CDAD)
  • Severe stomach pain, diarrhea that is watery or bloody
  • Little or no urination
  • Metallic taste in your mouth
  • Signs of an allergic reaction – hives, trouble breathing, swelling in your face or throat, severe skin reaction, pyrexia, sore throat, skin pain, a red or purple skin rash that spreads and causes blistering and peeling

Your doctor will assess the benefits of using Cleocin against your risk of side effects. Patients are encouraged to report negative side effects or adverse reactions of Cleocin to the FDA. Visit www.fda.gov/medwatch, or call 1-800-FDA-1088.

Cleocin drug interactions

Cleocin can interact with other medications. These include:

  • Erythromycin these two drugs should not be taken at the same time

This list is not exhaustive and other prescription drugs may interact with Cleocin. Tell your healthcare provider about all the medicines you take, including prescription and over-the-counter drugs, vitamins, and herbal supplements.

You should not use Cleocin if you:

  • Are allergic to the active ingredient clindamycin or lincomycin
  • Are allergic to any of the other ingredients in Cleocin
  • Are pregnant or are planning to become pregnant

  • Have liver disease
  • Are breastfeeding or are planning to breastfeed – Clindamycin can pass into breast milk
