I am taking a Z pak for sinus infection, think I may also have a bladder infection. will the azithromycin help?
I just took two Advil for menstrual cramps, and i need to take ceftin (cefuroxime) for my sinus infection. Can i?
Nasal saline spray: Many sinus infections are viral. Over-the-counter medications can make you more comfortable, like anti-inflammatory meds (aspirin, ibuprofen, etc) and decongestants (puedoephedrine). Steam and nasal irrigation can help. If your symptoms worsen or persist for more than 7-10 days, you may need antibiotics for a bacterial infection. ...Read more
Can I take Advil cold and sinus (night) and Nasonex (mometasone) for a cold and sinus pains while taking azythromycin for a sinus infection?
They do interact: very slightly. since azithromycin when being eliminated by the liver does prevent these other drugs from being removed as fast.

Which means any changes seen in the baby are probably a coincidence and not caused by the small amounts of antibiotic in the breast milk. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I was just prescribed Z Pak for reoccurring Strep Throat. Is it safe for me to take an Aleve (naproxen) D while taking the Z Pak?
YES.: Assuming you aren't allergic to Aleve (Naproxen) or similar NSAID medications like Motrin (Iburofen) or aspirin, you can take it with ZPack. You may not need the D part of the Aleve D.

Not helpful: Antibiotics are primarily for bacterial infections. A cold is typically viral. However, you can get a secondary infection like sinusitis or bronchitis in which antibiotics would be helpful.
