INTRODUCTION

EGYCLIN 600MG contains Clindamycin which belongs to the group of medicines called antibiotics. It fights against bacteria and germs and used in the treatment of severe bacterial infections. It acts by inhibiting bacterial protein synthesis which stops bacterial growth and prevents further spread of infection. It is usually reserved for the treatment of serious infections, especially when other antibiotics are not effective and when the bacteria-causing infection are susceptible for clindamycin.

Depending upon your age, body weight and type of infection, your doctor will decide a suitable dose for you. Continue to take this medicine, as long as your doctor tells you to do so, to obtain better results. Patients receiving this medicine for a very long time should regularly undergo blood tests and/or liver and kidney functioning. 

The most common side effects of this medicine are diarrhea, stomach pain, nausea and vomiting. Contact your doctor if any of the symptoms bothers you. However, if you experience severe persistent bloody diarrhea following treatment with EGYCLIN 600MG, contact your doctor immediately, as it could be a sign of colitis (inflammation of the colon). Before taking this medicine, inform your doctor if you have any serious kidney or liver disease. Proper dose adjustments and regular monitoring of amount of clindamycin in blood are required in such patients. It should be used with caution in pregnant and breastfeeding women and in children. Consult your doctor before taking.
