Insufflating (snorting) amoxicillin? Has anyone done that to treat sinusitis?

In brief: YIKES

Nasal nebulized antibiotics have been tried, but there's no good evidence that they're any better than oral antibiotics.
Crushing and snorting antibiotics sounds like a bad idea. You'd probably wind up swallowing most of it, anyway.
