Earlier today you answered my question about pain with a sinus

This answer was rated:

Earlier today you answered my question about pain with a sinus infection. I went in to see my ENT and I do have a bad sinus infection. She did a culture and sent it in to rule out fungal infections. Until then, she placed me on 2000mg Augmentin, twice daily for 21 days and Prednisone (60mg for 3 days, 40 mg for 3 days, etc..) My pain medications are still not getting rid of the pain. How long should it take for the medications to help alleviate my pain?

DR HASAN :

HI

DR HASAN :

Thanks for your question

DR HASAN :

I am ENT doctor and wants to help you

DR HASAN :

If you are still taking tylenol for your pain and its not helping you with pain then your doctor should change it and give you something like vicodin

DR HASAN :

Has your ENT changed the pain medications

DR HASAN :

i know you have samter's

Customer:

Ty! I have been taking tylenol and aspirin (1300mg for aspirin desentization)

Customer:

Is there anything else I can do to help with the pain until I can talk to my ENT?

DR HASAN :

DR HASAN :

Customer:

DR HASAN :

Customer:
