this is a different expert.

I see that you do not have an answer. I don't have anything to do with this delay, but would like to help so I will give you an answer now.

I am a double board certified US doctor and will be happy to help.

Yes, that is a correct dosage.

However, augmentin should have worked.

I suggest you might need a CT scan of the sinuses which takes about 5 minutes, to make sure there is no blockage.

The dose and length of treatment was correct for the condition.

You should see your PCP and discuss further possibilities on your diagnosis.
