Clindamycin is an antibiotic that is primarily used as a topical solution in an alcohol base to treat external infections. Therapy with clindamycin has been associated with severe colitis which may lead to death, therefore this drug should be reserved for serious infections when all other less toxic therapies have been exhausted. Side effects include abdominal cramps and pain, diarrhea, sore throat, fever, and skin rash.
