How do i use trimethoprim for sinusitis?

I, luckily, came across Sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim DS 800 mg / 160 mg during my miserable search to find an old RX to aid in this intolerable sinusitis. Am I supposed to take one every six hrs or can I double up so I can be useful sooner and free of this misery?
