Dear customer,

Clindamycin is not recommended for a UTI, so I would advice against using it. Please go to an urgent care facility if you are not able to consult your doctor and get a specific antibiotic after examination by a doctor and the symptoms will clear up within a few days of treatment. Also with an uncomplicated infection your doctor may recommend a shorter course of treatment, such as taking an antibiotic for one to three days.

Take care.
