Customer Question
Cefdinir is not working...

Cefdinir is not working for my sinus infection. Can I get a shot of penicillin now also?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Are you having any breathing problems?

No. I am on a cruise and my face feels like it is going to blow up. I am going to try musinex as soon as the shops open. But, I was wondering if I should go to the Doctor on the ship and just get a shot. I am not sure if I am overloading on antibiotics.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I am allergic to erythromycin

Hi, you are speaking with Dr Jonathan. A shot of penicillin will not treat a sinus infection. Continue taking the cefdinir until it is finished. Mucinex also will not help with sinuses. You will want to buy Sudafed, that is a decongestant.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
