... I'm on clindamycin, which is the main ingredient in ClindaTech. I just did some research on ClindaTech and I read that it may take 2 to 6 weeks to notice results, but in some patients it takes 8 or more weeks. ... (6 replies)
... I've used the foam, the lotion, and the gel, with best results with the gel and i dont remember it having a bad smell to it. I used it for about a year and got results immediately, like within a couple of days i stopped breaking out. It went on clear and felt like water kind of, there was no sticky feel to my skin afterwards and it didnt feel tight like most topicals do. I... (6 replies)
... Actually, the ProActiv may be a good addition to the clinda. I also have read that benzoil peroxide is a really good addition to clindamycin and speeds up healing. I guess the two working together is a good combo.
My doc prescribed it for a full year. I'd give the doc a call and see if he can refill the script for you. I'd really recommend using it twice a day (or as... (6 replies)
... Hi Amy,
Thanks, I am using the lotion... did the gel smell extremely bad?
Could you tell me how long you used it for? I am confused, as my doctor did not give me a repeat, so I was hoping just one bottle would be enough?
I am going to also use the Proactiv Solution and see if there is any difference. When I used it before, it didn't prevent pimples, but it made them... (6 replies)
... I'm not currently on Clindamycin but i figured id reply for you guys just because My derm prescribed Clindamycin Phosphate Gel like two+ years ago and i didnt even use it for like 2 weeks because i had never heard anything about anything called clindamycin and figured it was a waste, then when i finally used it it stopped my breakouts immediately. I didnt have severe acne,... (6 replies)
... Oh! Thanks for that. :)
I found it hard to find any information on it. I was just going by what the chemist said.
I just missed two doses though. :eek:
It is not very nice stuff. It smells horrible... but if it works, it's worth it.
Hope it works for you. (6 replies)
... I've given up on this stuff.
I used it perfectly for 3 weeks and had no improvement at all. I was told it would improve within a week.
Is it ok to just stop using it?
Has anyone else tried it?
I don't know what to do now. I'm almost 23 and I all of a sudden have bad acne. I am going to start using the Proactiv again and see if that helps. I'm already on birth... (6 replies)

I don't understand.
I tried that Proactiv stuff, and it didn't work. I have been taking Loette (Aust. brand of contraceptive, which is supposed to be for treatment of acne as well).
I have also been prescribed something called Clindatech - containing Clindamycin Hydrochloride). I've... (2 replies)
... Hi, I had acne which was pretty bad in the past, however I dont really have active acne anymore- my skin is pretty much cleared up now from the use of Diane 35. I get pimples occassionally, but the two along the jaw are constantly there (and appeared whilst I had active acne).
I saw a doctor 2 years ago, and they gave me a topical solution called ' clindatech' which... (2 replies)

... Hi all -
Just got back from the doc's - have a nasty (--> doc's words) infected pimple since yesterday afternoon. Size of half a golf ball, perhaps a fractions smaller, it's only one but ahhhh - it really does look nasty. I know I shouldn't complain and I do consider myself lucky in that I only get break outs at 'that' time of the month and they're usually very very mild... (0 replies)
... Ok here goes..
First up did a combination of Vibratabs (doxycycline) and Clindatech (anti biotic ointment) work for anyone? I am talking permenantly here.
Or am I just wasting my time.
Secondly while on roacutane were people still able to live a active life.I spend allot of time at the gym and was wondering if roacutane will affect weight work outs or be too painful for... (5 replies)
