YES, men can use clindamycin for a bacterial infection.
Clindamycin works for the following infections:
Bacterial Endocarditis Prophylaxis
Deep Neck Infection
Pelvic Inflammatory Disease
Prevention of Perinatal Group B Streptococcal Disease
Skin or Soft Tissue Infection
Toxoplasmosis - Prophylaxis
I get the feeling you have some clindamycin lying around and you intend to self-treat yourself for an STD. DO NOT DO THIS. GO SEE YOUR DOCTOR. Clindamycin will not get rid of an STD and besides you don't know the therapeutic dosage for using Clindamycin, now do you?
Be smart, Blaylock!
All the best,
Yes a man or woman can use clindamycin for an infection. It does not say for women only.
