In brief: None of these

These medications are antihistamines which counter the affects of allergies.
They are not antibiotics which are typically prescribed for sinus infections. Decongestants and sinus rinses may help with the symptoms associated with the sinus infection, but these antihistamine medications, in my experience, do little for this condition.
