I think I may have a urinary infection. Will the Clindamycin

This answer was rated:

I think I may have a urinary infection. Will the Clindamycin clear it? or would I need a different medication? Thank you very much.

Hello and welcome, Sylvia.

While Clindamycin would definitely help in urinary tract infection (UTI) too as it kills wide spectrum of bacteria (including the bacteria which commonly cause UTI). Though the most efficacious antibiotics for UTI are Cipro and Bactrim.

It is privilege assisting.

Please let me know, if you have any follow up questions.

Thanks for using Just Answer.
