Allergies, asthma, high blood pressure, sinus infection, leg pain, prescribed Zpack, claritin D. Healing time?

I have allergies and asthma. I also have high blood pressure. All of these symptoms are being treated and normally fairly control. I now have a sinus infection and so my pulmonologist prescribed Zpack and Claritin D until the congestion gets better. I am on the 3rd day of the Zpack. I have a fever and am now experiencing pretty persisitent leg pain. My blood pressure is good 109/72 but my pulse is high - 101. Is this because of the infection or what else would you suggest.

hello dear
thanks for your query at HCM
your consultant had prescribed Zpack that contains azithromycin, its antibiotic used in upper respiratory tract infection.
it will take atleast two to three days for antibiotic response to come and control the infection.
high pulse rate and fever indicate that infection still present it will take one or two more days.
claritine d will decrease cold and cough.
for fever take tab paracetomol 650 mg thrice daily, cold sponging if temperature above 100 f.
no other medication is now necessary your blood pressure is now under control only.
