I was prescribed both antibiotics to take for 14 days. 3 Clindamycin a day and 2 Doxycycl HYC a day. That is 5 pills a day. Can I put both in my stomach at the same time? Such as: 1 Clindamycin 300mg and 1 Doxycyle HYC 100mg at once. OR should I take them an hour or so apart? Thank you
Can I take Clindamycin 300mg and Doxycycl HYC 100mg at the same time i.e. both at 6am and 6pm?

Also, how many hours apart should I take the antibiotic Clindamycin 300mg @ 3 x day? Can I take them every 7 hours ? Can I take them under 7 hours? Thank you

Yes, you can swallow both capsules at the same time.
The doxycycline are best taken once daily - so take two tablets together at the same time every day for 14 days - they are best taken with food, so at breakfast or dinner, it won't matter, but take at the same time each day.
The clindamycin is best taken every 8 hours (or as close as practical ) - one of those doses can be at the same time as your two doxycycline capsules.
Hope this helps.
