Even if you experience side effects, it is important to continue treatment, unless directed by a doctor to discontinue use.ConsiderationsClindamycin hcl is also available in gels or creams, and it's used for acne treatment. Foams are also available for vaginal infections.InteractionsClindamycin hcl should not be taken by people with kidney disorders, intestinal issues like Crohn's disease or liver disease.ConsiderationsClindamycin hcl should be taken until the end of the recommended dosage, even if you begin to feel better.
