Did Clindamycin work for you?

Recommended Posts

the doctor put me on clindamycin phosphate lotion. It's one of those meds that makes your acne worse before it gets better, and mine has deffinately gotten worse. I've only been on it for about 3 weeks, but how long did it take for you to get results if you got any? Did it even work for you?

Also i just ordered Nixoderm, which i've never used before but apparently it works for most people. If the Nixoderm does work, should I stop using the Clindamycin since it makes me skin worse? or should I keep using it and see if it'll help along with the Nixoderm in a few months? thanks for any advice =)

p.s. -sorry if there's already a topic about this since it's a pretty popular prescription, i just didn't feel like going through over 500 pages to check.

it did not work for me. actually, it really didnt give me an initial breakout either. i dont like it b/c it was watery. this is the one in a small bottle?? i like thick stuff on my face. its only been 3 weeks, i think you should give it longer before usingthe nixoderm.

what is nixoderm?

i used clindamycin phosphate and it cleared me up within a few weeks, however after about 2 months of using it i became immune to it and my acne returned worse than ever. I now get acne which i never used to get and its actually worse than the acne beforehand. The lotion was okay because it didn't dry my skin out but it was hard trying to get makeup to stay on your face. Keep on going and see how it goes.

I've been on evoclin, which is clindamycin in a foam, for about 3 weeks now. It works pretty well for me, has kept me from getting any big pimples. The one or two I have gotten I've spot treated w/ benzaclin and they go away. I didn't get much of an initial breakout- there were some more small bumps that seemed to be like a purging process, but they were small and my skin still looked better overall. I'm using the evoclin in the daytime and a 2% SA lotion at night hoping to knock out some persistant blackheads with the combo.

Good luck.
