Can amox-clav treat a sinus infection?

Yes. If you don't have a prescription plan, you may do as well with Amoxil 875mg three times daily and flonase. You can get them both for less than the Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) will cost you.
Augmentin (amoxicillin and clavulanate) for sinus. Amoxicillin-clavulanate (augmentin) is considered a 'drug of choice' for acute sinusitis. However, a longer course of antibiotics is required for sinus infections due to the nature of sinus 'spaces' unable to take up antibiotics as readily.

Prescribed amox/clav 875 2 times a day for 10 days. Could only handle the side effects for 7 days. Would that be good enough for sinus infection?

Sinus. By definition you have had an incomplete course of Abx. Best to be rechecked esp. if purulent discharge, Could use oxymetazoline spray every 4 hours for one week to decrease tissue swelling around sinus openings. Also saline nasal irrigations three times a day for one week. This is assuming you do not have chronic rhinosinusitis, polyps, smoker. These conditions will require much more treatment. Read more...
