Clindamycin & HAART
Mar 15, 2009

Hi Dr. McGowan,

Had a sebaceous cyst drained and ER doc put me on 300 mg of Clindamycin Hydrochloride. Is it safe to take with my HAART combination of Truvada, Norvir, and Reyataz? Thank you kind Sir!

Response from Dr. McGowan

Thank you for your question.

There are no significant interactions between your HIV medications and clindamycin. Diarrhea is a common side effect of clindamycin. If your develop diarrhea make sure you speak to your doctor about it.

Good luck,
