Prednisone for sinus infection

Common Questions and Answers about Prednisone for sinus infection


Avatar m tn I have been prescribed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> a hearing loss issue today. Ive been und since July 2011. I have not yet taken my post tx vl test although all my blood work looks good. I was wondering if anybody has any info on this. I looked on past posts and found it all to be old and not real specific. Thanks ahead of time!!
Avatar m tn I have had an ongoing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sinus</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> over 5 years. Under the care of different doctors, I have been prescribed different antibiotics which have had limited success. The infection always returns once the prescription ended. My symptoms start with front and post nasal drip which is a reddish color, and sinus pressure.
Avatar n tn Not any better - now slight cough, headache, congestion, dizzy and flushed and at night wake up all sweaty.
Avatar n tn I also just saw a report yesterday about antibotics not really helpful <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sinus</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>. Have you read this? I believe it was small study that was done in Britain. If antibotics are now used to treat sinus infections, how will doctor treat the infections. Thanks so much.
Avatar n tn I am on my third round of anti-biotics <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sinus</span> infection and cannot get any relief. The first round was 14 days (cannot remember name) along with a one week supply of prednisone. The infection seemed to get better, but came back very strong 3 days after my meds were finished. My head hurt so badly that I was crying and had to use an ice pack to help ease the pain. My doctor gave me Levaquin (10 days), another 7 day supply of prednisone, and Lortab 10mg.
Avatar f tn It would be best to visit your doctor <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> proper evaluation and management <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sinus</span> pain as well as the anxiety. I hope this helps. Take care and keep us posted.
Avatar n tn I have had late onset asthma that was dx'd 3 yr ago, however, at the time I also had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sinus</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> and I did not understand asthma at all . It basically went untreated until recently when it totally became out of control. I have for 3yr had tons of excessive mucus but was unaware of where it actually wass coming from. I thought sinus , biut it seems much of the problem is asthma related since a breathing test recently showed my lungs were not working at full capacity.
Avatar f tn I have had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sinus</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> about 8 weeks. Symptoms did not resolve with antibiotics so I went to an ENT. A recent CT scan revealed that I have an infection in both the maxilary and sphenoid sinuses. I am taking prednisone, amoxicilan, rx decongestant and two antibiotics and a steroid delivered by a nasal nebulizer. What urgent signs should I be aware of that I need medical care prior to my next scheduled appointment with the ENT in a week?
Avatar f tn you'll see the study that proves what I've been saying for years--antibiotics don't work well against chronic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sinus</span> infections. A Neilmed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sinus</span> Rinse is the best treatment <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> maxillary <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sinus</span> infections, but gravity prevents it from working in the sphenoids. Here is what does: http://www.medhelp.
Avatar n tn if that doesn't help, you probably need to see your doctor. i once had a terrible <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sinus</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> that required two medrol packs (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span>) to reduce the inflammation enough to clear up the infection.
Avatar f tn <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> about four years i have had chronic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sinus</span> infections. I have had two surgeries on my right sinuses and correction of a deviated septum. I have had three surgeries on my left sinuses, the last one being a caldwell-luc. None of these have helped. I was also diagnosed with eosinophillic pneumonia during this time which was brought into control with the use of high doses of prednisone. I have tried an endless array of medications and procedures to rid the infection.
Avatar n tn I have no proof of this, but while i was searching <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> ways to cure my own <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sinus</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> without antibiotics or surgery, I saw a lot of comments about patients with chronic sinus infection talking how they find relief (some even said it cured them) from using grapefruit seed extract with irrigating their sinus. I'm not a chronic patient, but I've had my fair share of antibiotics for the sinus infection. I've never had to go back to the doctors after using grapefruit seed extract.
Avatar n tn My daughter had a severe sinus infection with fluid/ear pressure buildup so painful, the doctor prescribed 20 mg of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span>, taken 3 times a day (60 mg) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> 7 days, reduce to 2 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> 2 days, then 1 for 1 day to keep from 'damaging her ear drum because the fluid buildup was so bad'. She's been taking it for 5 days and feel sick to her stomach, headaches - the only thing that has left is the pain in her ears. Is that an overdose what they gave her? Are these the side effects?
Avatar n tn foreign Girl, I was on antibiotics <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> around 4 months during the course of treatment, including <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sinus</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>. They were all approved by my liver specialist and have no effect on you treatment with Pegasys. B6 Although some attribute even the rising tides to Hepatitis C, I don't think you can make a strong case that hepatitis will prolong sinus problems. That said, the treatment for Hepatitis C could prolong sinus problems while you're on the drugs.
Avatar m tn If you haven't had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sinus</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> 13 years, then that's great, and I'm happy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> you, but some people struggle with them, rinsing or not, and they might benefit from this vibration method.
Avatar m tn He prescribed me amoxicillin as a stronger antibiotic should I still have the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sinus</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>. I am also scheduled <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> a ct scan of my sinuses next Tuesday so see any possible problems. The only thing that is still bothering me is the lightheadedness every now and again. It's not as bad as it was before but nonetheless I can still tell I have some. I'm not sure if it's still some reminiscence of the sinus infection or whats going on with that.
1485281 tn?1287951992 I&#39;m having same problem. Have had sinus infection for months now. Went to dr. On Christmas Eve and got put on prednisone. Haven&#39;t been able to pick it up yet so idk if it&#39;s going to help or not. I take acid reflux pills daily and have gotten no releif. The only thing that helps is a hot bath with Epsom salt and other stuff I add to bath. I&#39;ve been on three different antibiotics and they did not help. Guess I&#39;m going back to dr.
Avatar n tn My first thought was- what the heck is going on- I have this bad <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sinus</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> , on meds <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> 20 days- it never goes away- was told to take celexa- (which I took at the same time as the anti-biotic)- and then started having attacks, tingling in my fingers and toes, and then I am being sent to a pyschologists? for anxiety or panic disorder.??? I really hope you get better and I did go to chiropractor ( I have not been in a few months though)...maybe I should go back for a visit.
Avatar f tn Hi doctor Sorry to come back here but again I am sick <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> the 4th time in 4 months with sore throat and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sinus</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>. I went to my doctor today and seems a little concern about me gettin.g sick so much. I ended up telling him my risk and he order an hiv test. This would be 24 weeks from my risk. I am so nervous about it now, doctor I am scared because I had sex with my wife unprotected just the other day and now my doctor thinks something is really wrong with me.
Avatar f tn I have had MS for 30 years, been on Copaxone <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> 8 years and haven't had problems until this Spring. I had a horrible cold, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sinus</span> drainage, etc. that would not go away. Dr. gave me antibiotics, didn't help. Then he gave another antibiotic, felt a little better, but still not well. Had a fever for over a month too. Finally I saw a different Dr. and she sent me for a CAT scan that day, I had TOTAL opacification in my sinus.
Avatar m tn The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span> I took in combination with antibiotics finally eliminate my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sinus</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> (it was a side of the treatement and I have suffered a lot from that), since then I don't have any more the sinus problem and don't have anymore fever (only once in few days), so I am not using any more Paracetamol or other fever reducer.
218977 tn?1230700972 I would recommend that you not take the prednisone OR the antibiotic. It's just a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sinus</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> goodness sake. Unless your immune system is highly compromised, it is sufficient to deal with the sinus infection on its own. My doctor proudly proclaims that he has the cure for the common cold. Drink a glass of water every day for ten days and your cold will be gone. 100% effect.
Avatar f tn I tried cutting my cat back and she lost weight and threw up--so she has to stay on the original prescription or she will do exactly what yours is doing. Work with your vet on understanding these circle of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span>. I fought her going on it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> a long time , but finally decided I would worry about the side effects another day. Right now she is feeling great. Keep us posted. She is a senior now and with that comes constant surveillance. My cat thinks I am her stalker !!!!
Avatar f tn Two weeks ago I have a severe <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sinus</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>, the doctor prescribed some azithromycin, prednisone, and hydrocodone cough syrup, I only took the cough syrup twice, it was too strong and made me hallucinate. However, I now have a stiff neck that is extremely painful at times. It wakes me up in the middle of the night and I can't continue to stay in bed. Yet, when I get up and sit in the chair I am exhausted. The stiffness and pain is on the right side of my neck and head.
Avatar f tn I was on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span> 30mg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> three days with no taper <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sinus</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> and laryngitis. A few days after stopping the prednisone, I had extreme anxiety lasting 24 hours. My heart rate would not slow and I had to her put on propranolol to lower my pulses. It's helping a little. Has anyone else heard if this happening after prednisone? Will it go away? I e never had panic before, just general anxiety without physical symptoms.
Avatar m tn I've had an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> about 3 weeks now, fever <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> 2. I'm worried since I already took zpack, amoxicilyn and now am on flagyl and prednisone and it's not clearing up. maybe it could be viral or something else. My nose is really sore and bleeding sometimes and I'm getting clear mucus.
Avatar f tn No one seems to know the cause and the dr's keep treating me with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prednisone</span>. Recently, my derm. asked me if I had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sinus</span> infections in the past and when I said yes, they ordered a catscan which showed inflammation but nothing notable. I'm going to follow-up with an ENT but in the meantime, I went to a holistic center that thought the hives may be linked to a hormone shift from being on the pill for so many years then stopping.
