Thanks for writing to us.
Yes lincocin is a good antibiotic used for multi resistant or special infections in humans. It is a reserved antibiotic and is not used routinely It has mild toxicity for liver and kidneys and should be taken only under medical guidance.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
