    sinusitis and fluid in ear

    this is what the dr said I had.. He gave me biaxin and I had an allergic reaction to it.. He just prescribed zpak which my husband is on his way to get.. Here is my question though.. My symptoms are severe nose bridge pressure and head pressure .. full ear.. my nose sounds like rice krispies noises in it and my ear pops and cracks when I swallow or yawn.. also some ear pain.. Now I don't feel congested at all.. I mean like I can breath just fine. I have never had a sinus infection act like this.. I feel drained also... Usually when I have a sinus infection I am clogges and have yellowish type drainage in my nose.. but no runny nose or congested.. Wehn I do blow my nose there is very little that comes out and clear as a bell.. Any thoughts????? Also what could I take with the zpak for the pressure etc??? or would the antibiotic take care of all that too

    I would say take a decongestant for the pressure. It does help. I just came back from the doctor for really bad ear pain in both ears and was told it's sinus problems, not an infection yet, so I am on claritan and mucinex d. Maybe you could give them a try too.

    is claritin a decongestant?? I usually can't take a decongestant cause it raises my heart rate and blood pressure too high.. hypes me up for days..

    No,not unless you get claritan D. It's only an antihistamine, so I dont' think it;ll really help the clogged sinuses. Can you take coricidine for HBP? I dont' know if there is a decongestant in it though.
    Maybe using a netipot will help keep the sinuses clearer too.
    good luck.
