Clindamycin HCL 300 mg
Your healthcare provider may prescribe clindamycin HCl 300 mg capsules to treat various bacterial infections. Clindamycin HCl (Cleocin®), which is the abbreviation for clindamycin hydrochloride, is the oral form of the medication. It works to treat infections by interfering with bacteria's ability to make proteins. Without these proteins, bacteria are unable to grow and multiply.
Other strengths this drug comes in include:
- Clindamycin HCl 75 mg capsules
- Clindamycin HCl 150 mg capsules
- Clindamycin palmitate HCl 75 mg per 5 mL granules for oral solution.
It is often less expensive to use twice as many 150-mg capsules rather than the clindamycin HCl 300 mg capsules. For instance, if you take 300 mg per dose, it may be significantly less expensive to take two of the 150-mg capsules, instead of one 300-mg capsule.
