Does clindamycin phosphate tretinoin interact with other drugs?

People who use clindamycin-tretinoin should make sure that doctors know before administering any neuromuscular blocking agent to you; clindamycin-tretinoin may increase the effects and side effects of those drugs. On the other hand, clindamycin-tretinoin may make erythromycin skin products less effective. If you are suffering from diarrhea as a side effect of using clindamycin-tretinoin, do not treat it before speaking with your doctor; some medications might make it worse.
