I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. The same testing (bacterial culture and sensitivity) that revealed multi-resistant bacteria should tell us if clindamycin (Zodon) would be an antibiotic of choice. I can only assume that amoxicillin/clavulanate (Synulox) was an antibiotic of choice according to that testing. I would be pleased to review the culture and sensitivity for you if you could post those test results in our conversation.
