Will taking steroids and amoxicillin be safe for sinusitis?

I am a 30 year old male who about 2 weeks ago was diagnosed with sinunitis for which i was prescribed steroids and amoxicillin. I still am on the amoxicillin but fear my sinus infection has turned into bronchitis. I have been sick altogether now for about 3 weeks and i feel like the amoxicillin is causing stomache cramps and lower back pain. What should i do? I am a smoker, but have cut back to less than half a pack of cigerates compared to what i was smoking which was over a pack a day. I am doing everything my doctor asked including trying to quit smoking, but to no relief of feeling sick. I don t know. I just feel like something isn t right, but could that be an effect of just being sick so long?

Hello,

Sinusitis if diagnosed on Xray has to be treated with antibiotics. If no response then start with herbal medicines. Decongestants also work.

We have oils like Anutail. we have to see your body constitution if it is vata,pitta or kapha to heal you.can consult me online for further advice.

Hope I have answered your queries. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr. Neelam
