Why would you be given two of the same antibiotics. Clindamycin is given to patients who have severe allergic reaction to penicillin and amoxicillin is a form of penicillin. Normally when you are given clindamycin you are antibiotic resistant.

Clindamycin can be taken with Amoxicillin if you are SURE your physician wants you to take them together. Clindamycin is a Lincomycin derivative and Amoxicillin is a Penicillin derivative and they work totally different. It is definitely recommended that you take a probiotic during and a few days after taking these medications together so that you can replenish the "good" bacteria in your gut that will be destroyed by the antibiotics. I hope this helps and I hope your symptoms are resolved.
