In brief: 1-2 weeks

The clindamycin is a good choice.
Take the entire dose,and by the time you take the last pill,you should see dramatic improvement.

In brief: 7-10 days

Usually this takes 7-10 days to clear but it can take longer (unfortunately).
Not sure about the 30 mg dose of clindamycin though - do you mean 300 mg?
