Hello.Clindamycin is an effective antibiotic for throat and tonsil infections.
If your symptoms have not improved, you should go to your doctor
again.He will examine you and will decide if is necessary to prescribe another more powerful antibiotic (for example amoxicillin-clavulanate)or collect a sample of your pharyngeal secretion for analysis.I wish you good health.
