Doctor :   please go ahead with ur medical query
User :   Hi I have had a sinus infection for about a month. First I went to an infirmary at my school and they gave me ciprofloaxin. I got better then it seemed to move into my chest. I went to my regular doctor and he gave me alvelox for 10 days.
User :   *avelox
User :   I got a lot better but then had a sinus headache so he sent me to a ear nose and throat doctor.
User :   He did an xray and said I had chronic infection in my right sinus and perscribed me bactrim and lodrane.
User :   If avelox didn't knock it out then isn't bactrim going to be ineffective?
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   may be the bacteria was resistant to alvelox
Doctor :   or alvelox was not effective
