Discussions that mention clindamycin

Acne board


My doctor just prescribed Clindamycin 1% lotion for my mild/moderate acne. I never really had any major problems with acne until recently - I'm 29 years old.

I was just wondering if anyone could share any info or experience they have with Clindamycin.

Thanks!
I use clindamycin lotion. My derm has me putting it all over my face at night and then immediately following with retin-a. The next time I see him, he says he is going to give me a prescription for something that is a combination of the two. I don't know what that is. It works well for me, although I feel like it makes my face oily. My derm says it doesn't though.

I think the combination of clindamycin and tretinoin (retin-a) is called Ziana.
[QUOTE=americandancer;3353674]I dread seeing what that's going to cost me....My insurance doesn't cover retin-a, as it is.
Have you tried to get generics? My derm prescribed me both Tretinoin 0.025% cream (to apply at night), and clindamycin phosphate lotion (to apply during the day). Brand name products are SOOOO expensive!! good luck!
