Taking aspirin and levofloxacin. Using otrivin for sinus problem. How can I switch from nexium to ranitidine?

I need to know how to switch from nexium back to ranitidine. I am currently on Levofloxicin and reactine for a sinus problem that I feel may be caused by the nexium as it came out of nowhere. I also take one low dose aspirin a day and am currently on an otrivin plus steroid nasal spray. How do I space the meds out for the least adverse affects during the day. thanks

Sinusitis is a bacterial infection, which occurs when air filled spaces in the facial bones gets colonized with the harmful bacteria.

Nexium is a anti reflux medication, which is no way related to sinusitis, you probably do not need to change it to ranitidine.

Get the sinusitis treated with a good course of antibiotics.
