Yes, yes, yes, yes. Yes and yes. Amoxicillin is a first line antibiotic for treatment of sinusitis. Consider decongestant and using saline nasal rinses. Have your nose evaluated by a board certified otolaryngologist.

Amoxicillin is one of several antibiotics used to treat sinusitis. However, the diagnosis needs to be confirmed and the dosage has to be correct. Please see your doctor if you think you have sinusitis and need to be treated. All of those symptoms could happen with sinusitis, yes.
