Is oral clindamycin helpful for acne vulgaris? Already failed tx w/ doxy, minocycline, & azithromycin.

Is oral clindamycin helpful for acne vulgaris? Already failed tx w/ doxy, minocycline, & azithromycin.

Don't do it: Taking oral Clindamycin after 3 other good antibiotics failed is asking for another failure and an episode of c. Difficile colitis or worse. I'm going to assume that topical Clindamycin plus benzoyl peroxide plus an adequate dose of an oral tetracycline was a failure. Your next option is a trial or spironolactone with other rx or a dermatology consult for Isotretinoin -- if the latter, be brave! ...Read more

Which oral drug is best nd effective among doxy ..mino..and azithro..For acne treatment?

Acne treatment: It's best to see a doctor for acne - since there are many tools available to help this condition. Of the 3 antibiotics you listed, I prefer minocycline. Make sure you've explored other options with your doctor first before trying to treat yourself. For example, topical medicines might be better - less side effects since lower blood levels of the drug. http://www.aafp.org/afp/2004/0501/p2123.html ...Read more
