Post Can I moisturize after applying Clindamycin?

I was recently prescribed Dalacin T lotion (clindamycin) and I forgot to ask my doctor whether I could moisturise after applying it. Does anyone know if I could/should? Right now, I don't. =P

I use the gel form of Clindamycin and love it. I only have to use it two or three times a week now b/c I'm pretty much clear from B5.

I didn't moisturize. There was no need. The clindamycin did not make my skin dry at all. All of the other products I tried did.

Sometimes I wear it under make up. In this case, yes, I moisturize after I apply it. I wait about 10 minutes to allow it to soak in.
