Oral capsules and granules
Doctors should only prescribe Clinacnyl to people who are allergic to penicillin or if they suspect that a different antibiotic would be inappropriate. This is because of the risk of colitis, which is inflammation of the colon's inner lining.
If possible, the doctor should take samples from the infection site to check which bacteria are causing the infection.

Enhancing Healthcare Team Outcomes
Clinacnyl is a widely prescribed drug by many healthcare professionals, including the nurse practitioner, primary care provider, internist, infectious disease consultant, and the emergency department physician. All healthcare workers who prescribe this agent should monitor the patient for changes in bowel frequency, colitis and resolution of symptoms. Clinacnyl is well known to cause Clostridium colitis, which not only extends hospital stay but increases the cost of healthcare. If diarrhea develops, it is important to manage fluid and electrolyte replacement in this patient population adequately. Healthcare workers should limit the duration of Clinacnyl therapy and abstain from empirical prescribing of this agent.
Clinacnyl has been shown to be active against most of the isolates of the following microorganisms, both in vitro and in clinical infections, as described in the INDICATIONS AND USAGE section.
