I am suffering from sinusitis and was prescribed

This answer was rated:

I am suffering from sinusitis and was prescribed Phenoxymethylpenicillin and Nasonex yesterday.
I feel congested in my cheeks, have pain in my forehead and feel lightheaded.
My question is can I take decongestion tablets with the antibiotics?

Yes. You can safely take decongestant medication when also taking the antibiotics.

Thank you is it normal to feel dizzy/off balance with sinusitis?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I would rather text

That can happen but, to tell the truth, it is more common with middle ear issues.....perhaps your infection has spread?

In any event, the antibiotics should work for any ear issues you might have...

Make sense?
