Cleocin solution is a medication used for the treatment of acne vulgaris. It contains clindamycin phosphate, an antibiotic that helps decrease acne lesions by stopping bacteria growth.

Use and Dosage

Use this medication only on the skin. Clean and dry the affected area first. Follow all directions on the product package or use as directed by your doctor.

If you are using the lotion, shake the bottle well before using it. Apply a thin layer of medication to the affected area as directed by your doctor, usually twice a day.

If you are using the medicated pad or swab, apply it to the affected area gently with it, then discard it. Depending on the size of the area to be treated, more than one pad or swab may be necessary.

If you are using the foam, apply it to the affected areas as directed by your doctor, usually once daily. Use enough to cover the entire affected area. Do not spray the foam directly onto your hands or face, because the foam will begin to melt on contact with warm skin. Instead, spray the amount needed directly into the cap or onto a cool surface such as a countertop. If the can seems warm or the foam seems runny, run the can under cold water. Please read the patient information leaflet available from your pharmacist for specific instructions on how to use the foam and ask about any unclear information.

Wash your hands after use.

Avoid contact with your eyes, nose, mouth, or any areas of broken skin. If you accidentally get medication in these areas, rinse well with plenty of cool water.

It may take between 2 to 6 weeks to notice an improvement in your condition, and up to 12 weeks to see the full benefit.

Tell your doctor if your condition does not improve or worsen.

Side Effects

Burning, itching, dryness, redness, oily skin, or skin peeling may occur. If any of these effects last or get worse, tell your doctor or pharmacist promptly.

Remember that this medication has been prescribed because your doctor has judged that the benefit to you is greater than the risk of side effects. Many people using this medication do not have serious side effects.

This medication may be absorbed into your bloodstream and very rarely because of a severe intestinal condition due to bacteria called C. difficile. This condition may occur during treatment or weeks to months after treatment has stopped. Tell your doctor right away if you develop: diarrhea that does not stop, abdominal or stomach pain/cramping blood/mucus in your stool.

If you have these symptoms, do not use anti-diarrhea or opioid products because they may make symptoms worse.

A very serious allergic reaction to this drug is rare. However, get medical help right away if you notice any symptoms of a serious allergic reaction, including rash, itching/swelling (especially of the face/tongue/throat), severe dizziness, or trouble breathing.

This is not a complete list of side effects. If you notice other effects not listed above, contact your doctor or pharmacist.
