Take tylenol or advil for the sore throat. Benadryl will help dry up the sinus drainage (but will make you drowsy). If you feel congested you can take Sudafed for that.

Re: I have sinus drainage and a sore throat, what do I take?

This condition bothers me as well.

Generally, I find that the drainage irritates my throat, which then becomes scratchy and sore. Sometimes very sore.
I usually take a Triaminacin dissolving strip which stops the draining temporarily without drowsiness. Ibuprofin helps to kill the pain too, as do zinc lozenges and gargling with salt water.

You can get the Triaminacin strips in the kids' section of the meds at any wal-mart. They used to package them for adults too, but recently pulled those and are just marketing them for kids. I dont know why; the dosage is the same on both packages.

I love the little strips. They help me so very much! Good luck
