Brief Answer:
Yes, you can stop the medicine

Detailed Answer:

I have read your query and understand your concerns.

If you are feeling better with the sinus infection now, you can go ahead and stop the medicine.

You have taken the course of 7 days, and that should suffice ideally.

Meanwhile, continue to do steam inhalation twice daily to feel better with the headache.

Take care!
