See below: 5 days of treatment for sinusitis/bronchitis may be enough. Your infection may be viral and not require antibiotics at all. You could stop your Clarithromycin which is probably causing the nausia and see if you feel better. If you still need an antibiotic you could try azithromycin(zithromax) instead.
