Yes, but bactrim and cipro are the meds of choice for UTI's. Clindamycin is very strong and it kills off all bacteria good and bad, so, you need to thoroughly read the side effects fact sheet and make sure you know what the signs of a reaction to this medicine is. Bactrim is a sulfa drug and many are allergic, but, it works well for UTI's. There are 4 main germs which cause them and Bactrim works for 3 of them mainly and Cipro works on the other one. If you get another UTI shortly after clearing this one up, or it doesn't seem to clear up with the Clindamycin, make sure the doctor cultures your specimen. Sometimes they just look for blood or white cells instead of doing a culture and you might need a different med.
