Cleocin is prescribed for the treatment of a number of serious bacterial infections. It is also used to treat acne and malaria, as well as other medical conditions.
Cleocin should be taken in strict accordance with your doctor’s directions. Cleocin does not have to be taken with food, but it should be taken with a glass of water. For best results take Cleocin at the same time every day. To ensure that the infection clears properly, the full course of Cleocin should be taken, even if the patient experiences a significant improvement in their condition.
If a dose is missed, it can be taken as soon as you remember, as long as it does not clash with the next scheduled dose. In this case, rather skip the missed dose. Never take a double dose.
If symptoms persist, or get worse, contact a doctor immediately. Cleocin should only be used by the patient for whom it was prescribed. Never increase or decrease the dose without first speaking to your doctor.
