Hello I'm Dr Chip.

Yes--finish out the course of the zithromax since it's not too late to get the full benefit of the antibiotic

And it basically covers your for ten days so give it a little more time to work on the sinus infection

Please let me know if you need any more information

Its somewhat better bt I dont think the zithromax totally got it Should I get another antibiotic if its not gone after I finish?
Expert:  Dr Chip (M.D.) replied 2 months ago.

Finish it off and give it another two days after you do

If it's not completely cleared by then you'd need a course of Cipro or Augmentin
