Close follow up: Choledyl is a bronchodilator that may increase your heart rate and induced more PVC and pac. I think is not available in usa but i may be wrong. Prednisone is an anti-inflammatory agent and should be safe. Avelox is an antibiotic that if used with Prednisone and for long period of time may increase the risk of tendinitis/tendon rupture specially aquiles tendon. Close follow up need it.

Sinusitis: Choledyl can produce accelerated heart rates. Avelox may cause a rare heart problem called qt prolongation. If you are being treated for an abnormal heartbeat, make sure the doctor is aware of it. Does not sound as if they are. Good to be cautious. Stay safe and get better.
