What is Clindagel

ClindamycinThe Generic name of this drug
Treatment SummaryClindamycin is an antibiotic used to treat bacterial infections. It is derived from lincomycin and has similar effects, but offers better results. Clindamycin can be used to treat a variety of serious infections, as well as acne. It works by attacking both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria. Additionally, it has been used off-label to treat toxoplasmosis, malaria, and babesiosis. The drug was first isolated in Lincoln, Nebraska from soil samples.

Effectiveness

How Clindagel Affects PatientsClindamycin works by stopping bacteria from making proteins, which helps prevent the spread of infection. It needs to be taken every six hours to be effective. It is important to be aware that Clostridium difficile associated diarrhea (CDAD) can occur with clindamycin, and can range from mild diarrhea to fatal colitis, so it should only be used for serious infections when other less toxic antibiotics are not available. Clindamycin is active against some gram-positive bacteria, as well as both gram-positive and gram-negative anaerobes, but resistance may develop over time. To make sure
How Clindagel works in the bodyClindamycin works by preventing bacteria from making proteins. It does this by attaching to the ribosome, a structure that helps make proteins from amino acids. Clindamycin has a structure similar to certain molecules that are important in protein production, so it can fit in their place and block the process. Clindamycin also kills a type of bacteria called Propionibacterium acnes, which has been linked to acne.

Clindagel Reviews: What are patients saying about Clindagel?

Clindagel for Acne
I'm very pleased with the results I've seen from using clindagel in the mornings and epiduo at night. My cystic acne has improved significantly and I would recommend this combination of medications to anyone else suffering from similar skin issues. The only downside is that my skin has become quite sensitive from the medication, so I have to be careful not to use too much or it will start to look red.

Clindagel for Acne
I've been using this for a couple months to help with my acne. While it does seem to cut down on the active pimples, it seems to make the scars more visible. Additionally, I developed dandruff from using this product - which was an annoying and frustrating side-effect. All in all, I'm not sure how much longer I'll be using this treatment.

Clindagel for Acne
Although this gel reduces the swelling of my cystic acne overnight, by the next afternoon the cyst is swollen and painful once again.

Clindagel for Acne
I don't think this medication should be used by teenagers. It made my acne worse and had other negative effects on my skin.

Clindagel for Skin Infection due to a Bacteria
My dermatologist prescribed this to me for an inflamed blackhead. After just two days of using it as directed, my skin was so badly burned that I had to stop. Now I'm dealing with redness, blisters and peeling skin. If only I had just used aloe vera gel from the start...
