someone gave me some clindamycin and they looked weird. the numbers from one side of the capsule to the other weren't uniform. The colors of the red and blue didn't coincide... sometime the red was on the left and sometimes on the right. Some of the pill felt hard and compacted and other seemed like there was a lot of power missing.
It is NEVER a good idea to use someone elses left over antibiotics or unused antibiotics. For one thing, you dont know for sure what you are getting, for another, you dont know if what infection you are trying to treat responds to that particular antibiotic and if they are leftovers (which there never should be because one should always finish the full course of antibiotics) there are not enough for a full course! Dont use antibiotics not prescribed for you. See a Dr and get your own prescription and have it filled at a reputable pharmacy. If you dont have medication coverage, talk to your Dr since they often get samples and may be able to give you free samples.
