I have a sinus infection and was put on cefdinir, and prednisone. I have a wedding to attend in 4 days. Can i drink alcohol while on these?
SPARINGLY: The small glasses of champagne to toast the wedding couple is fine, but would not exceed that. Alcohol interferes with the ability of white blood cells to fight infection, and in general is not a good fit with antibiotic treatment.

Diagnosed with acute sinusitis10 days ago. Fnp put me on omnicef (cefdinir) 300mg 2x daily for 10 days and some other decongestants. Has not improved. Should i go back, or give it more time/what else can I do?
