General Information on Clindagel
Clindagel is used for the treatment of severe acne. Its generic name is Clindamycin Topical, and it belongs to the class of drugs known as antibiotics. It works by preventing bacterial growth on the skin so that acne can be treated.
The medicine is available in the form of a topical gel. It has to be applied directly on the area that needs to be treated.
Side Effects of Clindagel
Do not buy Clindagel if you have an allergy to Clindamycin, Lincomycin, or to any other antibiotic. Also do not use it if you have an intestinal disease such as enteritis or ulcerative colitis, chronic asthma, hay fever, or any other atopic condition. Patients with such conditions may have increased risks of developing serious side effects of the drug.
Itching, burning, oiliness, dryness, skin peeling or redness may occur at the site of application. Although these are mild side effects of the drug, you should notify your doctor immediately if any of these conditions become too troublesome.
Although Clindagel is a topical medicine, a small amount of the drug may get absorbed into your bloodstream and sometimes lead to a severe intestinal condition known as clostridium difficile associated diarrhea. This is caused by a resistant bacterium. The symptoms of this condition may be noticed even after several weeks of treatment. Such symptoms include mucus or blood in the stools or stomach or abdominal pain or cramping. Inform your doctor immediately if you witness any of these symptoms.
Some hypersensitive patients may have an allergic reaction to Clindagel. Symptoms of an allergy include hives or rashes, swelling or itching of the throat, severe dizziness, face, lips or tongue, or trouble breathing. Discontinue applying the gel and seek medical help immediately if required.
You should be cautious while applying Clindagel. Make sure that it does not come in contact with your eyes, mouth, nose, or ears, as severe irritation may occur. If this happens, you must wash the affected area thoroughly with water. If irritation persists, seek help from an emergency care unit in your locality.
Dosage of Clindagel
Clindagel is only meant to be used topically and should not be ingested or inhaled. Clean the area to be treated before applying the gel and do not forget to wash your hands properly after application.
Your doctor will advise you to apply Clindagel on the affected area once or twice a day for 12 weeks. However, the dosage and duration of treatment depends on the severity of your acne. It may take around 2 to 6 weeks to notice any signs of improvement.
Use Clindagel exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Applying more gel than required will not help in treating the condition any faster, but will only worsen the side effects and increase the risks of developing serious side effects of the drug.

What is a "Generic" medication/drug?
Generic drugs are medications that have the comparable medicinal ingredients as the original brand name drug, but which are generally cheaper in price. Nearly 1 in 3 drugs dispensed are "generic". They undergo comparative testing to ensure that they are the same as their "brand" counterparts in:
- Active Ingredient (e.g. "Pravastatin" is the active ingredient in brand name Pravachol)
- Dosage (e.g. 10 mg of the active ingredient)
- Safety (e.g. same or similar side effects, drug interactions)
- Performance (e.g. 10 mg of a "generic" can be substituted for 10 mg of the "brand" and have the same therapeutic result)
- Intended use (e.g. both "generic" and "brand" would be prescribed for the same conditions)
What this means is that "generic" medications can be used as a substitute of their brand equivalents with comparable therapeutic results. There are a few exceptions (examples are outlined at the end of this page) and as always you should consult your physician before switching from a brand name medications to a generic or vice versa.
What differences are there between generic and brand?
While generics and brand equivalent drugs contain comparable active ingredients, they may be different in the following ways:
- Appearance (e.g. the scoring or markings)
The color, shape and size of the medication come from the fillers that are added to the active ingredients to make the drug. These fillers that are added to the drug have no medical use and do not to change the effectiveness of the final product. A generic drug must contain comparable active ingredients and must be comparable in strength and dosage to the original brand name equivalent. Generic drugs can be more cost effective than purchasing the brand name.
Why do generics cost less than the brand name equivalents?
When a new drug is "invented", the company that discovered it has a patent on it that gives them the exclusive production rights for this medication. Once the patent expires in a country, other companies can bring the product to market under their own name. This patent prevents other companies from copying the drug during that time so they can earn back their Research and Development costs through being the exclusive supplier of the product. After the patent expires however, other companies can develop a "generic" version of the product. These versions generally are offered at much lower prices because the companies do not have the same development costs as the original company who developed the medication.
The main thing to realize here though is that the two products are therapeutically comparable. They may look different, and be called something different, but they are required to be have the same active ingredient.
How are Generic drugs tested to ensure quality and efficacy?
The two most generally accepted methods to prove the safety of a generic version of a drug are to either repeat most of the chemistry, animal and human studies originally done, or to show that the drug performs comparably with the original brand name drug. This second option is called a "comparative bioavailability" study. During this type of study, volunteers are given the original drug, and then separately later the generic drug. The rates at which the drug is delivered to the patient (into their blood stream or otherwise absorbed) are measured to ensure they are the same. Because the same active ingredient is used the major concern is just that it delivers the common chemical(s) at the same rate so that they have the same effect. Please note that the methods that the manufacturers use may vary from country to country.
