I have been taking Azithromycin (250 mg tabs). Can I safely now take Excedrin (Extra Strength) to relieve a headache and sinus pain? Actaminophen? Thank you. -GUY

Brief Answer: Yes Detailed Answer: You can take either Excedrin or Acetaminophen to relieve from headache and sinus pain. I personally suggest NSAID like MOTRIN plus Acetaminophen for sinus pain causing headache. You can go up to 400mg of MOTRIN plus Acetaminophen up to 500mg unless there is deteriorated kidney functioning. Sinsuitis is inflammatory pain hence NSAIDs work better than Excedrin. Hope this is clear.
