In general no: Doxycycline is not generally a good antibiotic for rhino-sinusitis. If there is objective evidence of a bacterial infection (documented by culture) i would always recommend a culture and sensitivity of the lateral wall of the nose, particularly, is pus is present. Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) in patients not allergic to penicillin or Levaquin would be my recommendations. But a culture is required to make sure. ...Read more

Rx Doxycycline for Sinus Infection. Stopped after Side effects (pulsatile tinnitus). It’s been 3 weeks, pulsatile tinnitus not gone. Permanent?
Probably not doxy: Doxycycline is not a likely cause. More likely a coincidence that it started while taking the drug, especially since it has continued this long. If one of your sinuses is plugged and filled with fluid, that could result in pulsatile tinnitus by increasing transmission of blood flow sound in an artery. Discuss with your doctor, including if other tests are indicated. ...Read more

Sinus disease: The sinuses are aerated chambers that often get closed off and infected. Antibiotics are helpful but the important thing is to open them up again so they will drain. This is often achieved by using gentle saline solution or inhaled nasal steroids. Make sure the air you are breathing is not too dry. Occasionally topical antibiotics will help with the healing. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is doxycycline one of the better antibiotics for a sinus infection? If so, what is the optimal dose?
Not particularly: Usual dose 100 mg q12 Hrs. Anti=against, bio=life; all antibiotics are poisons, selected single molecules that (hopefully) don't bother our cells much, yet suppress/kill growth of unwanted cells in locations which create trouble for us after primary immune system not doing its job well. Azithromycin, up to 2,000 mg day 1, single dose, usually more effective, yet always depends on what's going on. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
