If taking clindamycin 900 mg. A day (300 mg. Ev. 8 hours) for 2 weeks- how long to get out of system once finished?
Should not be more: Than 48 hours before all the Clindamycin activity in your body has dissipated/metabolized completely. I do not think it even takes that long in healthy young individuals, but in older populations it can hang around longer, depending on the renal clearance (kidney function). Thanks for trusting in HealthTap. ...Read more
Common side effects include nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramps, & diarrhea.
Clearly, I would be concerned if you develop diarrhea on this medication. I will ask to check for C difficile infection. Although any drug can cause C diff, clindamycin is classically associated with C diff. An allergic reaction & developing an abnormal liver test while on the drug is obvious enough to stop taking it. ...Read more
Right away: You can take these drugs at the same time if it's desired. The zithromax has a long half life and will remain in your body for 5 days after you stop taking it.

Not long: Clindamycin has a relatively short half life and has to be dosed multiple times daily. But its most worrisome potential adverse effect, c. Difficile colitis, can persist long after the Clindamycin is gone. Take probiotics (at least yogurt) while on this med and if you develop signififcant diarrhea or cramps, get checked out. ...Read more

I have some clindamycin I want to use topically, does any one know that base I can use to make it topical?
Leave it to pro's: The pharmacist knows how to compound Clindamycin into an ointment, cream, lotion, or gel. However, pharmacists are trained professionals (they have doctorate degrees), so it is unlikely that they would want untrained folks to be making their own compounds. Among the reasons why are: one can get the dosing wrong, one can "mix" the compound wrong, one can be using the wrong base material, etc.... ...Read more
