Thanks for the query.

You are suffering from sinusitis and chest congestion with nose blockage .You have been prescribed Tablet Mox clav 625mg and Advent.

Tablet Advent is used to treat upper respiratory tract infections (including ENT – Ear, Nose and Throat diseases) e.g. recurrent tonsillitis, sinusitis, otitis media, lower respiratory tract infections like acute exacerbation of chronic bronchitis, lobar and broncho-pneumonia.

You are having symptoms of upper respiratory tract infection and sinusitis like nasal drainage, a feeling of nasal stuffiness, sore throat etc. The diagnosis and medications are both right.

The antibiotic prescribed to you needs to be continued for a minimum of 10 days. For some people if it does not get resolved in 10 days it will be continued to 14-21 days upon the doctor’s advice.

Along with these medications you should also do steam inhalation thrice a day with menthol drops. Also take warm soups, beverages, warm food. Avoid oily and spicy food. You can use cough lozenges like Koflet to prevent cough.

I hope I have answered your query. Please accept my answer if you have no follow up queries.
