Cleocin Description

Cleocin may be prescribed as an antibiotic to treat proven cases of bacterial infections of the lungs, blood, internal organs, and the female reproductive organs. Your doctor may decide to begin treatment with Cleocin or generic Clindamycin if your infection is strongly suspected to be bacterial and if any tests are returned stating it is a viral infection, you will be instructed to stop taking Cleocin and treat your viral symptoms as needed. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

How Cleocin Works

Cleocin and the generic alternative called Clindamycin, work as a bacterial protein synthesis inhibitor. When taken as directed, Cleocin interferes with a vital protein that bacteria need to survive; this action stops bacteria from being able to replicate. Cleocin functions as a bacteriostatic medication in that it does not actually kill the bacteria but stops their ability to multiply. As the bacteria population thins out, your immune system can then kill any remaining bacteria.

Conditions Treated by Cleocin

Women diagnosed with a pelvic inflammatory disease may be prescribed a course of treatment with Cleocin. Pelvic inflammatory disease can occur most commonly by the spread of gonorrhea or Chlamydia bacteria through unprotected sex. This infection can spread from the vagina to the uterus, the fallopian tubes, or the ovaries.

Cleocin can also treat cellulitis where bacteria, usually staphylococcus or streptococcus, have gained access through a surgical incision, cut, bug/insect bite, or any broken skin that provides bacteria a way in. This infection can be more apt to happen if the immune system is compromised through an illness, IV drug use, or if you have a history of cellulitis. Cleocin or Clindamycin generic also effectively treats pneumonia and endocarditis.

Before You Take Cleocin

Disclose other medical conditions and allergies you have to your doctor to be certain that taking Cleocin is the best treatment for your situation. List all current OTC and Rx drugs you are taking, including dietary and vitamin supplements and herbal remedies. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast-feeding in case Cleocin could be harmful to the health of your unborn or nursing baby.

Cleocin Precautions

Until you know how Cleocin will affect you, do not drive, operate machinery, or attempt any task that requires you to be alert. Take Cleocin for the full prescribed course of treatment to be certain the infection has cleared up as bacteria can become resistant to Cleocin if you quit taking it part way into your treatment period. Keep all medications out of children’s reach and never share with anyone else.
