Cefdinir 600MG and probiotic sinuses draining into throat, cough up white foamy/slimy green mucus. When I swallow after, hear/feel crackle in throat.
Take full course: I'd keep going with the cefdinir it until it's all finished. I am not sure how long you've been taking it but if you are on days 1-7, have faith and keep going. If you have any new fever, or are having additional symptoms after one week on meds, that would be time to return to your doc for re-evaluation. You're on a potent antibiotic, so I bet you'll be feeling better soon. Rest and fluids!! ...Read more

Post: Post nasal drip can occur when one has excess drainage or if the natural drainage changes in properties. Irritants and allergens may cause it. It is best to see an ENT (otolaryngologist) who can examine the nose completely. Often rinsing the nose with saline using a squeeze bottle is advised and prescription nasal sprays are used with good success rates. Sometimes allergy testing is a good idea in order to identify hidden allergies. ...Read more

On the other hand, if the nasal symptoms pretty much go away after the TSH returns to normal, that would suggest hypothyroidism as the cause or one of the causes. ...Read more
