This combination medication is used to treat a certain type of acne (inflammatory acne vulgaris). It helps to decrease the number of acne pimples. Clindamycin is an antibiotic that stops the growth of acne-causing bacteria. Benzoyl peroxide can also stop the growth of bacteria as well as reduce oil production in the skin, helping keep your pores open.
How to use Clindamycin-Benzoyl Peroxide Gel
Read the Patient Information Leaflet if available from your pharmacist before you start using clindamycin/benzoyl peroxide and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist.
Before using this medication, wash the affected skin gently with mild, non-medicated cleanser, rinse with warm water, and pat dry. Apply a thin layer of this medication to the affected areas of the skin as directed by your doctor. Be careful to avoid your eyes, mouth, inside your nose, and any areas of broken skin. Wash your hands after each use.
Use this medication regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, use it at the same time(s) each day.
Do not increase your dose or use this drug more often or for longer than prescribed. Your condition will not improve any faster, and your risk of side effects will increase.
It may take up to 6 weeks to see a decrease in acne and up to 12 weeks to see the full benefit of the medication.
Tell your doctor if your condition does not improve or if it worsens.
