Should calcium taken with ordered vit d (2000 iu daily)?

Yes.: An important function of vitamin d is to stimulate the absorption of dietary or supplemental calcium by the small intestine. If no calcium is consumed this effect of vitamin d will be absent. It is not necessary to take the calcium and vitamin d at the same time. A single appropriate dose of vitamin d should be taken daily and calcium should be taken in divided doses 2-3 times daily. ...Read more

What is best for chronic sinusitis? Allega d, Claritin (loratadine) d or zyrtec d

Probably neither: The medications that you describe are all antihistamines. They rarely are effective in eradicating an inflammation that has been present for 3 months (definition of chronic sinusitis). Even if allergy is part of your problem, these medications are not very effective. A better anti-inflammatory drug that might help temporarily is prednisone. ...Read more
