Hello. : Hello. I am assuming by the fact that you wrote in for medical input that the Clindamycin was not prescribed to you for this incident. Abcesses often need to have an incision and drainage. Do not recommend that you perform surgery on yourself. Do recommend that you be medically evaluated as this needs medical care. ...Read more

I just started taking clindamycin 300mg for a uti. Now my urine has a strong odor. Could the UTI have gotten worse?

I would not rely on odor alone as a sign that it is getting worse, though. Rather, persistent or worsened symptoms like burning with urination or having to go frequently should be relayed to your doctor. ...Read more
