How does Cleocin I.V. interact with other medications or food?

Cleocin I.V. may amplify the actions of neuromuscular blocking agents used during surgery. In laboratory tests, erythromycin has been shown not to be compatible with Cleocin I.V., so it is advised these two drugs not be administered together. Tell your doctor if you take over-the-counter medications or herbal supplements, and if you recently had a vaccination with a live bacterial vaccine. Do not mix ampicillin, phenytoin, barbiturates, aminophylline, calcium gluconate and magnesium sulfate in the same IV fluid as Cleocin I.V.
