OTC cold meds. Most over the counter cold medications combine antihistamines, decongestants and cough suppressants. People with hypertension should avoid those with pseudoephedrine. Guaifenesin is available is some preparations and is a great addition to the combination as it can thin secretions and promote drainage (MUST drink plenty of water for this to work properly).
Sinus and throat. Decongestants and saline rinses will help your sinusitis. If you have persistent throat pain, see your pmd for a throat culture.
Infections. Usually require antibiotics to treat. If you are having drainage, sore throat, etc. Taking any over the counter sinus cold & flu meds may give you some relief but if it is truly an infection they will mask the symptoms. It is best to see you MD or a Nurse Practitioner to check for infection and give you antibiotics if indicated.
I've been taking levofloxacin for sinus and throat infection for 4 days, I have a decaying tooth that started pain today? Should I take augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate)?
No. See your dentist. Don't mask the pain with an antibiotic. The antibiotic will not make the dental problem disappear.
Can throat infection, ring worm, zyrtec (cetirizine) or over-the-counter lamasil cream cause an eight year old boy to develop a lump under his left nipple?
None likely. Should have him seen by his pediatrician for examination, as is likely not related to any of the above.
Many. Nasal discharge, sore throat, fever, difficulty swallowing, headache, sensitivity to light can all be signs and symptoms.
I've been dizzy for 3 days now what could it be I've been on amoxil (amoxicillin) and dexamethasone for 6 days now for sinus and throat infection?
Anything. Your dizziness can have any cause at this time. Change in blood pressure especially when you change positions, known as orthostatic hypotension. Side effects of medication is possible too, especially dexametasone. I'd stop (it sounds an overkill to treat sinus/throat infection for that long with it). Also, make sure you drink plenty of fluids and take over-the-counter probiotic with your ab.
What are the chances of a 28 year old getting tooth discoloration from doxycycline? Taking it for 10 days for sinus and throat infection. 100mg bid
You're safe. Any of the tetracyclines, which includes doxycycline need to be taken when the teeth are developing in order to discolor the teeth. Don't worry, your teeth will not discolor.
Taking amox 500 day one and feel exhausted. This is second time in a month once for sinus now for throat infection. Is it common to feel run down?
Sunus. Between the antibiotics and the sinus issue it's understandable make sure you take a probiotic as well hang in there.

Post nasal drip. Your symptoms may be due to post nasal drip. Allergy medicines may help this but if symptoms continue see a doctor to rule out possibility of infection or allergies needing prescription medicines.
