antibiotics are not sold over the counter...and not all antibiotics kill the same infection so you are best off going to a Dr. if it is in deed an infection. If its not an infection try taking pseudoephedrine which is a nasal decongestant and is sold over the counter Answered by Babara Councilman 5 months ago.
The following works for sinus, cold, running nose, sore throat and strep throat, when the throat is hurting and lot of other conditions. The most visible thing about sinus is swelling. In case of cold, sore throat, strep throat also swelling is there but to some less extent then it is visible in sinus. Sinus, cold and sore throat usually happen in the following situations - - Change of season, drinking lot of water after exercises, when u get up in the morning, after swimming, after having first sex, kissing, first time smoking etc. The reason - The body has limited capacity to store water in places other hen cells and in blood systems. When we suddenly drink lot of water, that must be stored in the cells within a short period. If that does not happen the body tries to lose water through frequent urination, running nose, cough etc. This excess water is stored in layers of skin or muscles. This stored water outside cells reduces the cell metabolism drastically. That also causes the immune system to be done causing the bacteria growth. That does not need antibiotics. All it needs is reabsorption of that water in cells or blood system. That is possible only by reducing the water intake temporarily. During winters the cells of our body stores less water. This is evident from frequent loss of water from body throuhurination. Normally. Another thing that needs explanation is - why does sore throat happens in the morning often. The cellular metabolism is at 5 to 10% during sleep. So the excess water stored between layers of skin and muscles causes the metabolism to fall below the minimum threshold limit. That reduces the immune capacity of the body drastically. The same thing happens after swimming the body is heated up and cooled at the same time. It a person allows sweating after a swimming session and does not drink water or does not take a shower in cold water sore throat may not happen. After having first sex, kissing, first time smoking people tend to either overeat, drink lot of water and sleep immediately so sinus or sore throat happens. The easier way out is to allow body to sweat for 1 or 2 hour by increasing the body temperature but not drinking water or other fluids for may be 1 hour after that. But since cell metabolism is low during this period of cold and sinus, a person will seem to be excessively thirsty even after a short session of small exercise. Thru cell metabolism the water is transferred to blood system. If that happens at a rate slower then required rate the cells may overheat causing excessive thirst. The other easy way to control swelling is to give up water and all other liquids for 24 hours. In 24 hours there will be no significant dehydration to cause organ failure. But to be double sure one can stay indoors for 24 hours. This helps in lot of other ailments. One can do it when one is indoors. It improves the immune system. It ensures that body's control systems work properly. In 24 hours the reduction in the fluids will be about 3 litres or about 5% of the total body weight of a normal adult. Never the swelling due to sinus or cold and cough is more than 5% of the body volume. During this period of 24 hours the lose of water from the body does not reduce even by 1% to offset reduced water intake. The reduction in loss of body water thru urine or sweating starts after 48 hours in most of people. But to be on safe side giving up water and liquids for 24 hours will do the trick. The reduced swelling will give immediate relief from pain. It will make is much more easier to eliminate the cough thru nose without any pain. That will also improve the blood acid levels by about 10%. This makes changes at the cell level as well. Blood acid levels are the first line of defense against the infections. So swelling gone, pain gone, cough moving out, infections taken care of. Now what remains in the body for the next change of season time. Obviously nothing. So it has already given u long term relief from sinus. But in some cases one may get sinus during next change of season and may have to do this again. The benefits of drinking lot of water is over hyped. So when winter starts to set in, people still force drink more water. Same thing happens when summer is setting in. As soon as summer comfort is there on increases the water intake drastically. But the cells of the body still does not need that excess supply of water. Answered by Isaiah Hagerty 5 months ago.
Does anyone know what the best medicine is for sinus infection?
I have tried alot of medicines but it keeps coming back.
Asked by Margot Javarone 5 months ago.
Antibiotics for sinusitis Examples amoxicillin (Amoxil, Larotid, Trimox) amoxicillin-clavulanate (Augmentin, Augmentin XR) ampicillin (Marcillin, Principen) azithromycin (Zithromax) cefaclor (Ceclor) cefdinir (Omnicef) cefpodoxime proxetil (Banan, Vantin) cefprozil (Cefzil) cefuroxime axetil (Ceftin) clarithromycin (Biaxin, Biaxin XL) gatifloxacin (Tequin) levofloxacin (Levaquin) loracarbef (Lorabid) moxifloxacin hydrochloride (Avelox) telithromycin (Ketek) trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (Bactrim, Septra) All the above are recommended for sinus infections. There is not really ONE best one. It would all depend on if you are allergic to any medications or not. Also if this is chronic and they keep coming back maybe talking with your doctor about the pros and cons of surgery to correct this. Be careful with taking antibiotics on a regular basis as this can cause resistance to many things. Answered by Kellee Saleeby 5 months ago.
I have been plagued my whole life with apparently horrible sinus anatomy....and the dreaded infection. Firstly, try not taking ANY prescription medications at all....down the line most prescription medications only cause other problems. remember that. Secondly ... and this is going to save your life: buy a Friedrich C90-A air purifier....or some derivation thereof....and not some silly ionic breeze from sharper image either. Getting an air purifier has absolutely 100% changed my life. I'm somewhat of a health freak and having fresh air has taken away getting sinus infections altogether. Thirdly, get a small humidifier for night-time....it'll keep the flem loose which harbors the bacteria. Taking only one ibuprofen every 5/6 hours will help in any inflammation. Don't rely on doctors, they're only there to maintain your sickness, not cure it... remember that. Lastly, go to a health food store and find the "medicine man/woman" and ask them to help ... oh, and acupuncture helps as well. Anyhow, I really really wish you good luck as I know it completely sucks to have what you have. By the way, a friedrich purifier is around 500. or so dollars, but just remember the best air purifiers MUST move the air to clean it. So, if you cannot afford the friedrich there are less expensive ones that will do good work....research through consumer reports (NOT digest) and find out for yourself. email me for any support you may need. smile.

Ask your doctor for a prescription for the duo of Nalex and Prolex. They work in conjuction to shrink sinus tissue, and blockage. Also it keeps the drainage from entering your lungs by "drying" it up before it gets to you lungs. I hope you feel better soon! Answered by Joel Winder 5 months ago.

Answered by Bret Lavoy 5 months ago.
You shouldn't take any medications unless they were specifically prescribed by your doctor for a specific condition. Trimethoprim is most commonly prescribed for the treatment of bladder infections, providing that your immune system is strong and healthy. Not all antibiotics work against all infections so it's important that you speak to your doctor. This will help to prevent you becoming immune to the actions of antibiotics in the future. You may need a different dose as well, depending on the severity of your infection. It's also important to get it checked out to make sure that the infection hasn't soread to your Kidneys (pyelonephritis). Answered by Sharda Trevarthen 5 months ago.
NO! That is NOT how you take antibiotic. GO TO THE DOCTOR. You need to take antibiotic for 10 days. Then, you need to eat yogurt for 3 days. Ask the doctor to explain to you how antibiotic works. If you do it the way you want, you will ruin your immune system. Till you get to the doctor, drink cranberry juice and water. Answered by Barbie Sivie 5 months ago.
