What is Cleocin?
Cleocin Vaginal Cream containing the active ingredient clindamycin belongs to a group of medications called lincomycin antibiotics. The cream can be used to treat certain bacterial infections by killing the bacteria causing the infection. It is used to treat a common condition of the vagina called bacterial vaginosis which can cause vaginal discharge. The medication cannot be used to treat vaginal irritation caused by yeast infections or sexually transmitted diseases.
How is Cleocin used?
Cleocin Vaginal Cream should be applied topically once per day or as directed by a doctor. Contact a doctor for the correct dosage and length of treatment as it will depend on the patientís condition and their response to the medication. The cream should be applied with a disposable applicator into the vagina at bedtime. To prevent the medication from leaking out from the vagina, it is advised to lie down as soon as possible after applying the cream. The patient should finish the prescribed course as prematurely discontinuing the medication can lead to the infection returning.
Women using Cleocin Vaginal Cream may encounter unwanted side effects such as:
- Upset stomach
