Use nasal steroid: I would advise a course of potent nasal topical steroid spray, such as Nasonex, (mometasone) Rhinocort, Flonase, etc used scheduled twice per day for a month over systemic oral steroids (even for a short oral course).

Also abstain completely from Afrin (oxymetazoline) while on steroid spray treatment and avoid in future. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Have neck pain for 16 days. Doctor gave me naprosyn (naproxen) but hasn't helped pain. Would a Medrol dose pack help or does it have same effect as naprosyn (naproxen)?
Different effect : A Medrol (methylprednisolone) dose pack is a steroid, that's a very potent anti-inflammatory. If naprosyn's not working, you need to find the cause of the problem. Best is to see an osteopathic physician, who can do a full osteopathic examination of your neck and spine, and provide treatment of your neck to reduce pain .

Sinus infection?: If you have a sinus infection, the problem would not go away with nasal steroid (which takes several days of use to get optimal results) or even Medrol. I am wondering also why you have been on low dose Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) for the past year since this only encourages the growth of resistant bacteria. Perhaps a CT sinus should be considered. ENT consult? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
