In brief: Yes
Usually the pm component is Diphenhydramine or benadryl (diphenhydramine).
This is a sedating antihistamine. If you have a sinus infection and are already on antibiotics, then it is safe to use this medication to get some rest at night.

In brief: Usually
Getting adequate rest will aid in recovery from infection.
These pm medications are not likely to influence the effect of azithromycin, and helping you sleep is quite beneficial.
