THIS IS THE BRAND
Clindamycin is a lincosamide antibiotic. Clindamycin is a semisynthetic antibiotic and derived from lincomycin by the addition of chloride.
Clindamycin is sold under brand names such as Dalacin and Cleocin.
It is most effective against infections involving the following types of organisms: Aerobic gram-positive cocci, including some members of the Staphylococcus and Streptococcus (eg. pneumococcus) genera. Anaerobic gram-negative bacilli, including some members of the Bacteroides and Fusobacterium genera. It is used primarily to treat infections caused by susceptible anaerobic bacteria. Such infections might include respiratory infections, septicemia and peritonitis.
In penicillin allergic patients clindamycin may be used to treat susceptible aerobic infections as well. It is also used to treat bone-infections caused by Staphylococcus aureus. Topical application of clindamycin phosphate can be used to treat severe acne.
