In brief: Sinusitis Rx
Sinusitis is primarily treated with an antibiotic like amoxcillin.
Other treatments may include a decongestant, either oral or a nose spray (either otc afrin (oxymetazoline) or a prescribed steroid nose spray like flonase). If you use an otc nose spray, be sure to use it only for 3 days.

In brief: Decongestants
The best treatment is a good decongestant and whatever you can do to drain the sinuses.
Antibiotics aren't recommended except for severe or long-lasting cases.
