Can You Get a Cleocin Prescription Online?

If you need an antibiotic, the last thing you want to do is go into your doctor’s office just to describe your symptoms and walk away with a prescription. Wouldn’t it be easier if you could get a Cleocin prescription online?

Well with PlushCare you can. By speaking to online doctor you can get Cleocin or another antibiotic electronically prescribed.

It’s best to come to your appointment prepared and since there are so many different antibiotics, let’s first talk about what Cleocin is, how it works, the risks and benefits, and other interactions and considerations. Then we’ll go into detail about how you can get a Cleocin prescription online.

What is Cleocin?

Cleocin is the brand name for clindamycin, an antibiotic. It’s used for treating serious bacterial infections and is not useful for treating viral infections like a cold or the flu.

Some of the serious infections Cleocin is used to treat include:

  • Serious soft tissue or skin infections
  • Serious respiratory tract infections like pneumonitis, empyema, and lung abscess
  • Female pelvic and genital tract infections like endometritis and ovarian abscess

How Does Cleocin Work?

Like other antibiotics, Cleocin stops the growth of bacteria.

Cleocin Dosage and Treatment

Always follow your doctor’s dosing instructions carefully for the best results. In general, Cleocin is taken as 150 or 300 mg every 6 hours. For best results, you should take this medication at around the same times every day.

You should take every Cleocin dose that your doctor prescribes, even after you start feeling better. Failing to do so can result in the development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

Benefits of Cleocin

Cleocin helps clear up serious bacterial infections. Due to the risk of potentially deadly side effects, it should not be used when another, less risky, antibiotic is expected to work.

Side Effects of Cleocin

While most people have no problems taking Cleocin, there is the potential for serious, potentially deadly, side effects such as:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Stomach pain
  • Diarrhea (potentially severe)
  • Joint pain or swelling
  • Rash
  • Heartburn
  • Dark urine
  • Yellowing skin or eyes
  • Vaginal yeast infection
  • Vaginal itching or discharge
  • Oral thrush
  • Allergic reaction
  • Little or no urination
  • Low blood pressure

Considerations and Precautions of Cleocin

While Cleocin is generally considered safe, it isn’t right for everybody. Always tell your doctor about your current medications and your complete medical history to prevent potentially serious complications.

Cleocin Interactions

Cleocin may interact with certain medications. Be sure to tell your doctor about every medication you take including over the counter medication, supplements, and vitamins. Be especially sure to mention any of the following:

  • Macrolide antibiotics like clarithromycin or erythromycin
  • Kaolin-pectin
  • Hormonal birth control

Other Cleocin Considerations

Cleocin may cause complications if you have certain medical conditions. Make sure you tell your doctor about your complete medical history. Especially mention any of the following:

  • Kidney disease
  • Liver disease
  • Colitis, Crohn’s disease, or other intestinal disorder
  • Asthma
  • Severe allergic reactions
  • Eczema, or allergic skin reaction

Cleocin and Pregnancy or Breastfeeding

Make sure you discuss the risks and benefits of taking Cleocin during pregnancy if you are pregnant or planning on becoming pregnant. Cleocin may be more dangerous when taken during the first trimester, but only you and your doctor can decide whether the pros outweigh the cons of taking Cleocin during pregnancy.

Cleocin may pass into breastmilk. Talk to your doctor before taking Cleocin if you are breastfeeding.

Can You Buy Cleocin Online?

You have to be careful when trying to buy Cleocin online because there are a lot of websites skirting the law, offering prescription medications, without a doctor’s appointment.

Did you know that federal law requires you to speak to a doctor before you get any prescription medication, including Cleocin? Therefore, any website which claims that they can mail you a prescription medication from another country without talking to a doctor first is breaking the law.

Luckily, there is a legal, safe, and reputable way to buy Cleocin online. With PlushCare, you can have a phone or video appointment with a licensed physician. After discussing your symptoms and medical history, the doctor will decide whether you would benefit from Cleocin or another medication.

If the doctor believes that Cleocin is right for you, they can electronically send a prescription to your local pharmacy, where you can pick it up when it’s ready. It really is that easy to get a prescription for Cleocin online.
