Who should not take Cleocin I.V.?

If you have colitis, kidney or liver disease you should not receive Cleocin I.V. without alerting your doctor first. Women should avoid this drug during the first trimester of pregnancy, since its safety at this point in pregnancy is unknown. Nursing mothers also need to be aware that this drug passes through breast milk and could harm an infant. Caution should be used when given to the elderly since they may be more sensitive to the side effects, especially diarrhea. Also, it is important to discuss any allergies you may have with your doctor prior to taking this medication.
