For Acne: "I've started & still am, taking this medicine 12 weeks ago, along with minocycline. The fourth week I was using it I thought it got worse, but I kept with the product and over time I saw a major improvement from the first day I took it. It burned and dried out my face the first week, but after that my face was fine. Most of my acne is either gone, light red, or scars, so I'm going back to the dermatologist next week to see what they can do about it. I definitely recommend this product!"

For Acne: "I started using Clindamycin at the end of April. It took 2 weeks for my acne to start clearing up and 4 weeks for my acne to stop all together. My doctor recommended that I continue to use Clindamycin for 8 weeks after my acne cleared. So I stopped using it this month (July). Highly recommend this medication. Very gentle yet very effective."

For Bacterial Vaginitis: "I've been using this gel off and on, but BV always seems to come back. I think maybe my body is immune to this medication now so I'm going to try metrogel. The first time I used cleocin it worked great for a few months, then of course it came back.. Then I got a yeast infection then after the treatment for the yeast BV would come back. It's a never ending cycle. But the medicine gave me no side effects, and works until it comes back."

For Acne: "My derm gave me this along with minocycline, I had it in the strongest strength and as the topical solution. stopped using going into 2 weeks because all it did was cause severe redness and irritation and made my pimples bleed (I never even popped them or anything) my skin looked horrible. I broke down the whole next week until my skin went back to normal. PS- It burns like heck"

For Acne: "I am a 60 year male with adult acne.I feel like I am reliving my teen years. My scalp, my face and my back and neck started to break out. I tried several prescription meds, when I finally used clindamycin topical gel I saw a huge difference in the condition. Now I am mostly all clear and I am also very happy. Also no side effects. I truly hope that everyone could have these results especially you teens.God bless. truly yours, Porkchops 5/21/2015"

For Bacterial Vaginitis: "So it started a few months ago, thought it was a yeast infection so I decided to treat as such, about a week after I thought it was gone, symptoms flared back up. Went to the doc and she prescribed clindmyacin cream for 7 days. Didn't work, went back a few weeks later and she gave me the same thing. Didn't work. That was about a month ago, and my symptoms come and go. Any advice?"

For Acne: "My PA prescribed this for me after I complained of bad cystic acne at 30 years old. This medicine has been nothing short of life-changing. It took only a few days before I started seeing my skin clearing up. Now a few months in, I can easily go out without makeup! I honestly feel like a new person."

For Acne: "This lotion actually stopped my breakouts in one week of usage. By the second week, my skin began to even it's tone. If on the rare occasnio I do have a breakout, the pimple dries out in two days and doesn't leave a scar! It's very costly though for such a small amount of product."

Clindesse (clindamycin) for Bacterial Vaginitis: "My doc gave me Clindesse as a last resort to my 6 month vaginal discharge issue. Luckily she gave me a free sample. I inserted it on Wednesday night and by Friday afternoon I had a raging yeast infection! Called the doc back and she prescribed Diflucan to counteract the Clindesse induced yeastie. This changed my ongoing symptoms for the worse! Ladies I sincerely hope this med works for most of you but for me, it didn't. For being someone who has never had side effects of any meds this was certainly a first for me."

For Acne: "I am a 15yr old female and I have had moderate acne for about two years now. I went to a dermatologist who prescribed me Monodox once a day, Cleocin T gel twice a day, and Atralin gel at night. I am About two weeks in and I already notice a huge difference not just in my acne but the overall quality of my skin. At first I had a major breakout (not sure which gel this is due to) and a little bit of drying and peeling but my goal was to be clear by the school year and I am on track! The drying has gone away and I am so excited for this product! Highly recommended!"

For Acne: "I used the liquid version of this product and it worked really well for about 6 months. Then my doctor prescribed the same medication but in a cream version and it's not working at all, instead of clearing my breakouts it makes them worse. It's also making my face extremely oily."

For Bacterial Vaginitis: "I took the cleocin ovules for 3 days and none of the symptoms subsided. I still remained to suffer from the yellowish discharge, and shortly after received blood spotting intermittently."

For Bacterial Vaginitis: "Have been on it since April. Did the 14 days, then twice a week, now once a week and hope to be done in October. Had my Gyn paid attention to me it wouldn't have been so bad. The specialist had to first rile out any cancer as I had uterine cancer surgery the summer of 2012. It was bacterial and I'm getting tired of "still recovering". For the person who said the ovule gets stuck in the applicator, I reread the directions the first time I used it and it said you can use your finger. Much easier."

Cleocin Ovules (clindamycin) for Bacterial Vaginitis: "It worked very well on my condition. No awful side effects, since I expected the burning sensation after reading the information abut it. I only had problems keeping the ovule in, since it appears to get stuck in the applicator."

For Bacterial Vaginitis: "I am on the vaginal ovule. This is my second time around. The first one didn't treat it. One of the side effects is that it causes your monthly cycle to mess up. The ovule triggered my cycle to start a week early, so I started on the second day. I don't think I got the full effect of the first pack. I don't like the terrible burning sensation they cause either."
