Which drugs or supplements interact with oral Clinmas?
- Clinmas may act as a neuromuscular blocker. This means it can increase the action of neuromuscular blocking drugs (for example, pancuronium and vecuronium), which are used during surgery.
Clinmas has been shown to have neuromuscular blocking properties that may enhance the action of other neuromuscular blocking agents. Therefore, it should be used with caution in patients receiving such agents.
Antagonism has been demonstrated between Clinmas and erythromycin in vitro. Because of possible clinical significance, these two drugs should not be administered concurrently.
How should I use Clinmas?
Take Clinmas exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Follow all directions on your prescription label and read all medication guides or instruction sheets. Use the medicine exactly as directed.
Clinmas oral is taken by mouth. Clinmas injection is injected into a muscle, or as an infusion into a vein. A healthcare provider will give your first dose and may teach you how to properly use the medication by yourself.
Take the capsule with a full glass of water to keep it from irritating your throat.
Measure liquid medicine carefully. Use the dosing syringe provided, or use a medicine dose-measuring device (not a kitchen spoon).
You may need frequent medical tests during treatment.
If you need surgery, let your surgeon know you use Clinmas as it may interact with certain drugs used for anesthesia.
Use this medicine for the full prescribed length of time, even if your symptoms quickly improve. Skipping doses can increase your risk of infection that is resistant to medication. Clinmas will not treat a viral infection such as the flu or a common cold.
Store at room temperature away from moisture and heat. Protect the injectable medicine from high heat.
Do not store the oral liquid in the refrigerator. Throw away any unused oral liquid after 2 weeks.
Clinmas for Acne
Clinmas can be applied to the skin to treat acne. It comes in lotion, cream, or gel form under the name Cleocin T or Clinmas phosphate.
For the best results, wait 30 minutes after washing your face or affected area before applying Clinmas to the skin. Your skin may become a little sensitive while using Clinmas, so be sure to use gentle cleansers and moisturizers that will not irritate it further.
Clinmas may cause side effects. Tell your doctor if any of these symptoms are severe or do not go away:
- unpleasant or metallic taste in the mouth
- joint pain
- pain when swallowing
- white patches in the mouth
- thick, white vaginal discharge
- burning, itching, and swelling of the vagina
As with all antibiotics it's important to finish the prescribed course (unless your doctor tells you otherwise) even if you feel better or it seems the infection has cleared up. Stopping the course early increases the chance that the infection will come back and that the bacteria will grow resistant to the antibiotic.

The developmental and health benefits of breastfeeding should be considered along with mother's clinical need for Clinmas and any potential adverse effects on breastfed child from Clinmas or from underlying maternal condition
Lotion, gel, and solution
Doctors prescribe Clinmas lotion, gel, and solution to treat acne.
A person with acne can apply a thin layer of Cleocin T 1% lotion or Clinmas 1% solution to the affected area of skin twice a day.

Topical Clinmas can cause diarrhea. Anyone who has had colitis should avoid using this treatment.
8) Gum Disease
Gum disease is a chronic inflammation of the gums and ligaments that support the teeth, which is often triggered by the bacteria in dental plaques. Over time, gum disease can lead to deep pockets between the gum and teeth and teeth loss. Treatment involves plaque removal, surgery, or antibiotics .
Clinmas is not among the preferred antibiotics for treating gum disease. However, it may help with aggressive forms of the disease. In a small study, Clinmas was effective at reducing gum bleeding and pocket size .
