Sinus Infections - Treatment Approach

Not all forms of sinus pain require antibiotic treatment. Sinus pain symptoms caused by viral infections or by exposure to environmental substances such as irritating chemicals will sometimes go away on their own. Sinus pain that lasts seven days or more, however, are more likely to be the result of a bacterial cause and prescription sinus medications can be helpful, including amoxicillin, Augmentin, and clarithromycin (Biaxin).

Amoxicillin is an antibiotic that is frequently used in the treatment of a sinus infection and the treatment duration is one week or more. In people with sinus infections resistant to amoxicillin, Augmentin (amoxicillin / clavulanic acid) is another antibiotic that can be used as it sometimes has better activity against the bacteria causing the sinus infection. Clarithromycin is another alternative that can be used for the treatment of sinus infections.

Sinusitis - An Overview

A sinus infection, sometimes referred to as sinusitis, is an infection of the mucus linings of the sinuses (air-filled spaces in the face). Sinus infections can be caused by viruses or bacteria and cause symptoms such as a headache, fever, impaired smelling and even a sore throat. Acute sinusitis episodes are classified as those that last under four weeks. Sinus infections can be contagious if caused by a bacteria or a virus.

Sinus Infection Medications - Side Effects

Prescription medications used in the treatment of sinus infections are strong medications and can cause unwanted effects known as side effects. Side effects from sinusitis treatment may include nausea, vomiting and and upset stomach. Some people may also experience an allergic reaction while taking a sinus infection medication. Questions or concerns about medication side effects as they relate to the treatment of a sinus infection should be directed to one’s medical provider and pharmacist.

Sinus Infection - Treatment Online

While some sinus infections will go away on their own, other types of sinus infections require a prescription medication. This form of treatment for sinus infection symptoms requires a prescription written by a licensed medical provider after which the medication can be dispensed by a licensed pharmacy. Assurance Care helps people suffering from sinus pain and sinus infection symptoms connect with a doctor or medical provider who can provide treatment if it is appropriate to do so.
