Suggest remedy for severe cold

Hi, after over a month of feeling like I had the worst cold of my lifetime, I finally went to a doctor. I woke up with so much pressure in my right ear and it felt like it needed to POP but wouldn't, all day. The Dr told me I had severe sinusitis. He prescribed me a zpack and some nasal steriod spray. Which I still haven't taken because I have bad anxiety attacks and cannot take any medicines without getting anxieties. Now, 3 days after hoof to the Dr
