This is assuming you do not have chronic rhinosinusitis, polyps, smoker. These conditions will require much more treatment. ...Read more

Amox clav 875mg 2x a day. Started last night. Good for bronchitis or sinus infection? I feel awful and I'm coughing up green chunks of mucus. Super tired
Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate): Yes, augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) is great for sinus infections and bronchitis generally speaking. Sounds like you are pretty ill, so don't expect instant results. It is going to take time to start to recover and even longer before you are fully recovered. Your body is under a tremendous stress dealing with this infection. Get plenty of rest, stay hydrated and try and get decent nutrition everyday to aid inthe recovery ...Read more

I have a sinus infection and my doctor prescribed amoxicillin but how do I treat the crusted stuff inside my nosterals?
Given Amoxicillin for a week to treat my sinus infection. It's been a week and I still have bad odour from nose. Was I given the wrong medication?
I'm being treated for an acute sinus infection but have been on augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) for a week and the pain is getting worse and spreading. Any suggestions?
Multi-factorial: The discomfort of sinusitis has as much to do with obstruction of drainage and congestion as it does with inflammation. It does not appear that you are irrigating your nares with saline solution and a Neti-pot, nor using a decongestant (pseudoephedrine, oxymetozaline, etc.) You would probably benefit from both and if it gets worse see an ENT doctor. Best wishes. ...Read more
My 74 year old father started on augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) 875mg dose today to treat a severe sinus infection. He threw up one hour later. Should he continue the med?
Try one more dose: Some people cannot tolerate certain antibiotics. If he is unable to keep down his second dose, the prescribing clinician needs to be informed immediately so he/ she can decide what to do. If he can't keep it down, it is not treating his infection. ...Read more
Treated sinus infection with liquid augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate), (amoxicillin and clavulanate) didn't work, took augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) pills, cold symptoms went away, swelling in face got worse. Should I worry?
You should see your doctor to get this checked out. You may have a sinus infection and may need further evaluation. The liquid vs the pills should have no difference if taken as prescribed. If you have the swelling you must be seen to make sure there is resolution or that something else is not ongoing.
Best wishes. ...Read more

I went to the emergency room & got amoxicillin for a sinus infection. Been taking it for 3 days & I have been feeling discomfort in my vaginal area.
Yeast?: You don't say what sort of vaginal "discomfort" you have. If it's itching or irritation, or maybe a thick discharge, it could be a yeast infection. Antibiotics like amoxicillin can suppress normal vaginal bacteria and allow yeast to overgrow and cause symptoms. Three days is earlier than usual, however. Contact your doctor for further advice and possibly treatment if yeast is suspected. Good luck. ...Read more
My gf is taking amoxicillin for a sinus infection and she noticed a change in her vaginal scent. Seems to be more...vinegary. Increase in acetic acid?
Very good: A bacterial sinus infection is treated primarily with antibiotics to ward off any infection. Due to the severity and longevity of the sinus infection, an individual may have to take larger doses of amoxicillin. The typical sinus infection requires around 1, 500 mg daily of amoxicillin, but in more severe instances a person may need to take 2, 000 mg to 2, 500 mg daily to ward off the infection. ...Read more
My 6 year old 52 lbs was given Amoxicillin 400mg for a sinus infection. Take 20mls daily. Shouldn't this be twice a day?
Usually: This med is designed to be taken twice a day. That is how I would use it. It leaves the body through the kidneys & twice a day use increases retention. I would use 10 ml of the 400/5 liquid twice a day (not 20ml twice a day) ...Read more
