Dalacin C Uses

Dalacin C is an antibiotic used to treat a wide range of bacterial infections including, Urinary tract infections, Sinusitis, Otitis media, Upper respiratory tract infections, Lower respiratory tract infections, Pneumonia, and Skin infections, etc. Dalacin C is composed of Clindamycin which is a lincosamide antibiotic that is given to treat infections caused by bacteria. It works by killing the bacteria, hence making it difficult for them to survive. Mostly, these kinds of antibiotics are given if the bacteria are resistant to penicillin antibiotics. Antibiotics can only fight against bacteria. They are not active against viruses. Therefore, they are only prescribed to treat bacterial infections.

Risks and warnings

You should know the risks and warnings of Dalacin C to prevent its misuse.

There are some specific circumstances under which the use of certain medications is contraindicated or considered dangerous. So when taking any medicine it's always a good practice to familiarize yourself with its risks and warnings.

The risks and warnings associated with Dalacin C are:

Allergic to clindamycin

If you are allergic to clindamycin, do not take Dalacin C or any other medicine with the same generic name, as it can result in a life-threatening condition called anaphylactic shock.

Always inform your healthcare provider about the documented allergies you have. 

Non-susceptible organisms

Clindamycin should be given to the patient only when the bacteria are sensitive to it. If not, it can lead to antibiotic resistance, making it difficult to treat infections next time. It mostly applies to urinary tract infections and infections of the nose, ear, and throat.


If you have had a history of seizures or you have renal impairment, you must avoid the use of clindamycin as it can provoke seizures.

Kidney failure 

If your kidneys do not work well, the healthcare provider may lower the dose of the drug. It happens because your kidneys are meant to excrete out the waste and toxins. If that does not happen, the toxins may build up in your body, leading to severe adverse effects. Therefore, you must inform your health care provider about your complete health condition.

Muscle weakness or Myasthenia Gravis

If you have any disease that causes muscle weakness, like myasthenia gravis, you must not take clindamycin as it can worsen the condition. 

Gastric ulcers

People suffering from gastric ulcers and acidity must take clindamycin with extreme caution because it affects your gastrointestinal tract. 

Also, it can cause ulceration in your stomach lining when taken for the long term. Your doctor may prescribe a gastroprotective agent along with it.

Liver diseases

Patients with liver disease should take clindamycin with caution. It is because your liver helps in the metabolism and excretion of drugs. When it does not work efficiently due to any disease, it can cause accumulation of the drug in your body, leading to severe adverse effects. 

Heart diseases and hypertension 

If you have a history of heart disease, heart attack, or hypertension, you must take clindamycin with caution as it can worsen the preexisting condition.


If you have a history of arrhythmias (a condition in which the rhythm of the heart gets abnormal), take clindamycin with caution because it can cause QT interval prolongation of the heart-a life-threatening condition. 

Pregnancy and breastfeeding

If you are pregnant, do not take clindamycin unless your doctor advises it. It can affect your baby’s health. Breastfeeding mothers should also consult with a healthcare provider before taking it. 

Anticoagulants or bleeding disorders

If you are taking anticoagulants for thinning of your blood, or you have any bleeding disorder, take clindamycin only on the advice of a healthcare provider. 

Ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease

If you have a history of ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease, do not take clindamycin. It is because it kills the healthy bacteria present in your gastrointestinal tract that help in the digestion of food. In their absence, it becomes hard for the body to digest food. Due to this, diarrhea occurs.
