Help with sinus infection

I have a sinus infection that doesn't want to clear up.ive had two runs of z pack and when it didn't work, they gave me a stronger antibiotic in shot form and a steroid. It seemed to help a little at first but came back.

The infection is giving me almost constant migrains with auras. I've been taking claritan (without the decongestant), flonase, and sometimes aspirin.

I'll go back to the doc soon as I can get an appointment, but in the meantime I'm wondering if there's something more I can do. Am I taking the right medicines? Would a decongestant work? What have you used or done that has helped?

Is It Normal?

      • I googled some brand names for you: Afrin, Dristan, Vicks Sinex.
        Try asking for these at your local pharmacy.

      • The salt is called "oxymetazoline hydrochloride", perhaps they sell it under a different name in the us.
