Clindamycin Phosphate Topical Solution

[FONT=Arial Narrow]Has anybody ever been prescribed to this acne gel? My derm prescribed it to me yesterday along with a tablet called Minocycline. I'm supposed to apply the gel twice daily and take two pills of the Minocycline at bedtime. Any reply about these 2 treatments would be appreciated!

Re: Clindamycin Phosphate Topical Solution

Yea I use the clindamycin phosphate solution (1%). I use it 2x a day along with a Benzol peroxide gel (2.5%)
The only complaint that i have about it is that its a white lotion, so it takes a while to rub in, unlike the BP gel, which goes on clear initially. Other than that no complaints.

I've never taken minocycline, but there are quite a few threads on this board regaurding the pills

Make sure your using a gentle and NON medicated cleanser with the lotion, check the back of the cleanser and make sure there are no warnings saying "use with other topical medications at the same time...[could cause problems]"

Haven't tried the Clindycamin Phophate Gel.
But the Minocycline is very good for acne.
Mnocycline, tetracycline, and Doxycycline are 3 of the best anti biotics for acne.
