What is Onexton

ClindamycinThe Generic name of this drug
Treatment SummaryClindamycin is an antibiotic that is used to treat serious infections caused by certain bacteria. It is also used to treat acne. Clindamycin is semi-synthetic and has a limited range of activity, which includes anaerobic bacteria, gram-positive cocci, bacilli, and gram-negative bacilli. It is also believed to have some activity against certain parasites and has been used off-label to treat toxoplasmosis, malaria, and babesiosis. Clindamycin is a replacement for the naturally occurring lincosamide lincomycin, which was first discovered in Lincoln

Effectiveness

How Onexton Affects PatientsClindamycin works to stop the growth of bacteria by blocking protein production. It needs to be taken every six hours to keep the right amount in your system. Taking clindamycin can sometimes lead to a serious form of diarrhea called Clostridium difficile associated diarrhea (CDAD). This can happen even two months after you stop taking clindamycin. It is important to use clindamycin only when other antibiotics won't work, since it can cause serious problems. Clindamycin works on many types of bacteria, both gram-positive and gram-negative, but some bacteria can become resistant to it
How Onexton works in the bodyClindamycin works to stop bacteria from producing proteins, by blocking the ribosomes in bacteria. It does this by mimicking the shape of molecules used by the ribosome during protein creation. This prevents the ribosomes from creating proteins, which stops the bacteria from growing. It is thought that when used topically on acne, this mechanism may also be effective against the bacteria that causes acne.

Onexton Toxicity & Overdose RiskThe lowest toxic dose of clindamycin in mice and rats is 2540mg/kg and 2190mg/kg respectively. If a person overdoses on clindamycin, they may experience abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. In one case, a 3-year-old was given 100mg/kg for 5 days and only had mild abdominal pain and diarrhea. Activated charcoal can help to remove unabsorbed drug, but dialysis is ineffective. General supportive measures are recommended in cases of clindamycin overdose.

Onexton Reviews: What are patients saying about Onexton?

Onexton for Acne
This solution has helped me drastically improve the appearance of my skin. I wash my face with a salycic acid cleanser twice per day, and during the second wash, I use witch hazel as a toner. Once the toner dries, I apply this medication and then a moisturizing lotion. This routine keeps my skin moist and prevents any flaking or dryness that the medication might cause. I could not be happier with how my skin looks now.

Onexton for Acne
This treatment has been great for my acne scars and breakouts. I've been using it for three months now, and the scars are definitely fading. I haven't had any new breakouts, which is amazing. I highly recommend this product to anyone struggling with similar issues.

Onexton for Acne
I had been using Acanya for years when I went in to get a refill and my dermatologist told me that while my confidence had grown, I still had acne. I was grateful for the progress but decided to try Onexton at her suggestion. And I'm so glad that I did! My skin is almost completely clear now and I couldn't be happier with the results.

This is the best treatment I've tried. Just make sure to use a good face moisturizer to avoid drying out your skin.

Onexton for Acne
This treatment has been a game-changer for me. I've been using it for about a year and it's the only thing that's really helped my skin. I just leave it on overnight and by morning, I can tell a big difference in my skin. Onexton, combined with drinking plenty of water, has really helped improve my complexion.

Onexton is the only acne treatment that has ever worked for me! I saw results after just one use. My skin was clearer and more beautiful than it had ever been before.

Onexton for Acne
For anyone struggling with adult acne, this treatment cleared my skin so quickly. I even left the house without makeup on for the first time in awhile! The only downside is that it can cause some dryness and flaking, but you can use a lotion to help with that.

Onexton for Acne
I had cystic acne around my nose and chin, but this treatment helped clear it up quickly. I would suggest using less than a pea-size amount every other day if you have experienced extreme dryness from similar products in the past.

Onexton for Acne
At first, this treatment made my face feel itchy and sunburned. However, I stuck with it because it was actually clearing up my skin. The dry, itchy burning effects lasted for a couple weeks but now my skin is used to the effects and I am more than pleased.

Onexton for Acne
I started using the gel about a week or so ago and it definitely made my skin smoother and clearer at first. However, now my face is becoming very red, irritated, dry and itchy! You can literally see flakes all over the application site. And my skin feels very tight. I'm not too fond of this development. Maybe it will improve with some more time.

Onexton for Acne
I'm struggling to adjust to the side effects of this medication. My skin has become very discolored and hyperpigmented, making it difficult for me to go outside. I've been using it for a month now, and I haven't seen any improvement. If things don't improve soon, I'll be discontinuing use and throwing the rest of the prescription away; just like all the other acne medications I've tried.

Onexton for Acne
Onexton has helped me a lot with my acne, but it hasn't completely cleared up after a month of use. I'm hoping that it will clear up soon, like other people have said in their reviews. I know that popping pimples makes it worse, but I can't help it sometimes.

Onexton for Acne
This medication made my skin much worse than it was before I started using it. It dried my skin out and caused a lot of discomfort.
