    i heard that Clindamycin sometimes causes chronic colitis but don't know about other antibiotics. But yea they do have gastrointestinal side effects.

    I have never taken anything orally to cure my acne problems. I've used clindamycin lotion and astringent on my face. I found both to be very strong, although they did work. I guess you only use those if you have severe acne problems. Otherwise, stick with products that are gentle on the skin.
