Discussions that mention clindamycin

Acne board


Hi everyone, I'm an 18 year old girl who has acne.. I have had it for about 2 years now (an extremely long 2 years). I was prescribed a 2% clindamycin differin topical compound about a year and a half ago.. it worked well with no side effects but when my medication was stopped about 4 months ago, the acne came back even worse a month or two ago. I am now prescribed the exact same thing and was wondering if anyone has had any knowledge or experience with this, especially with a second time of using the drug. I now know the results are not permanent with clindamycin and was wondering if anyone could help me decide on maybe a new prescribed drug I could take for more long-lasting results. I have heard that oral medications work better than just cremes or jels. I have tried everything and hoping the clindamycin will work again for the time being but want something that will last. Sick of fighting acne, this is the worst it's ever been. Just want to live my life with confidence, which I did have this entire year while clear-skinned and now it's gone. Just want to be happy as a was this year when my skin was zit-free. Please help :) new to this and decided to sign up on a message board because no one I talk to understands what I'm going through.... Thanks a lot!! :)
