Is it safe to take clindamycin and metronidazole at the same time? Currently taking clindamycin for strep throat.

In brief: It

It is absolutely fine to take them both together. As a podiatrist, i often treat complicated foot infections in diabetics using this very combination of antibiotics.
Just as a note of caution, however, if two different doctors are giving you these medications, it would be prudent to inform each of them what the other one is giving you. Feel better!
