Children over 6 years and teenagers under 14 years old: the dose for children is calculated according to the formula 8-25mg/kg divided into 3-4 intakes.

The pills should be swallowed entirely with a full glass of water.

Precautions and warnings.

If the treatment lasts for over 3 weeks patients should check the function of liver and kidney and pass blood tests on a regular basis.

A recurrent and lost lasting utilisation of clindamycin may lead to superinfections.

This drug contains sodium, therefore patients on a low sodium diet should be extremely careful.

Pregnancy and breastfeeding periods: clindamycin passes into mother’s milk. The breastfed infant will have diarrhea and colonization of mucous membrane with fungi.

Driving and machinery use: Generic Cleocin does not influence the capacity of users to perform such activities.
