Clindamycin is indicated in the management of serious infections a result of susceptible anaerobic bacteria
Clindamycin is also indicated in the management of serious infections as a result of susceptible strains of streptococci, pneumococci, and staphylococci. Its use needs to be available penicillin-allergic patients and other patients for whom, inside the judgment with the physician, a penicillin is inappropriate. Because of the potential risk of colitis, as described inside WARNING box, before selecting clindamycin the physician should consider the type in the infection along with the suitability of less toxic alternatives (eg, erythromycin).
Take clindamycin the same manner prescribed because of your doctor.
Store at room temperature faraway from moisture and heat. Protect the injectable medicine from high heat.
Clindamycin could cause diarrhea, which might be severe or bring about serious, life-threatening intestinal problems. If you have diarrhea that's watery or bloody, stop using clindamycin and call your doctor.

any alteration of bowel habits;
little or no urinating;
signs of inflammation in your body - swollen glands, flu symptoms, easy bruising or bleeding, severe tingling or numbness, muscle weakness, upper stomach pain, jaundice (yellowing in the skin or eyes), chest pain, new or worsening cough with fever, trouble breathing; or
