Benzaclin Warnings

Before you begin using a medication, be sure to inform your doctor of any medical conditions or Allergies you may have, any medications you are taking, whether you are pregnant or breast-feeding, and any other significant facts about your health. These factors may affect how you should use Benzaclin.

Colitis: When applied to the skin, clindamycin is absorbed into the bloodstream and can cause colitis (inflammation of the colon). Contact your doctor immediately if you experience abdominal pain, cramps or bloating, severe watery diarrhea that may be bloody, or nausea and vomiting.

Contact: Avoid contact with eyes, mucous membranes (easily irritated areas around the nostrils and mouth), and sensitive skin. If contact does occur, wash with plenty of cool tap water. Avoid contact with hair, fabrics, carpeting, or other materials, as benzoyl peroxide may cause bleaching.

Other acne medications: Other acne medications and skin preparations should not be used at the same time as clindamycin - benzoyl peroxide as it may cause increased skin irritation. If severe irritation occurs, stop using Benzaclin and contact your doctor.

Skin irritation: Some people may experience temporary skin irritation, especially in early weeks of treatment. Your skin may also become more sensitive to the sun. If you experience severe reactions and your skin becomes extremely red, swollen, and crusted, stop using the medication and contact your doctor.

Pregnancy: Benzaclin should not be used during pregnancy unless the benefits outweigh the risks. If you become pregnant while you are on Benzaclin or if you are planning to become pregnant, contact your doctor.

Breast-feeding: It is not known if clindamycin - benzoyl peroxide gel passes into breast milk. If you are a breast-feeding mother and are using Benzaclin, it may affect your baby. Talk to your doctor about whether you should continue breast-feeding.
