OverviewSinusitis is very common condition and it is the medical term for, actually, the inflammatory process on the mucous membranes of the sinus cavities. This condition is manifested as the swelling of these membranes, the nasal congestion and the runny nose. The most prominent symptom of this condition is the pain, which is, in the most of the cases, felt over the forehead (in the region above the nose), and over the cheeks (in the areas below the eyes).
However, in the majority of the cases, the infection which inevitably leads to already described inflammatory process, is the response of the organism as the result to the entrance of the bacteria. In general, the drugs that annihilate bacteria, medically called the antibiotics, are used as the standard and conventional therapy for sinusitis. And, that is because the provoker, and not only the consequence, should be treated.
Nevertheless, this therapy should be moderated to suit every individual because of the general well-being and of the extent to which the inflammation and infection have advanced. Of course, in the case of the permanent sinusitis, it is better to use the medications which should be taken in by inhaling. Additionally, there are a lot of the medical products for lessening the intensity of the accompanying indicators of this problem and those are, for instance, the drops for unblocking the nose, the corticosteroids which are intended for the inhalation, and the remedies based on the agents which make the mucus more watery.
The effects of the antibiotics
Nevertheless, if the inflammation still advances, the treatment should be enriched with Amoxicilin, and it should be taken for about one week and a half. It is essentially important to take the actual prescribed dose of the antibiotics, since, if that is not the case, the infection is very likely to come back again after some time, although the progress is visible after only three days of the therapy.
As already well known, such the drugs do provide some possible negative following troubles, and among the most common are the halitosis, the problems with digestion (such as the problem of the bland stool and more frequent urge for expelling it) and the overgrowth of the Candida in the genitals (in the case of taking the excessive amount of the antibiotics). One of the tips on how to avoid these problems is simply drinking more yoghurt, since it is rich in the ‘’good’’ bacteria.
Apart from that, moxifloxacin and levofloxacin bring the higher chances of the troubles with tendons.
