Possibly: The choice of antibiotics in persisting cases should be guided by laboratory tests which will show which antibiotics are likely to be successful. While Cleocin (clindamycin phosphate) is not a commonly used antibiotic for utis, it is certainly possible that in a given situation it becomes the best choice.
