    Question Is 250 mg of Zithromax/Z-Pack enough for severe sinus infection/flu?

    Hi everyone. I was diagnosed with a sinus infection and think I have the flu now. My doctor prescribed some weird medicine for me that didn't even work. I can't even think of the name of the antibiotic and can't find the bottle right now. Sorry. Anyway, I only got worse on it. So, now, I was prescribed Zithromax 250mg. I am just wondering if that dosage is powerful enough to help? Thanks!

    That's pretty standard for a sinus infection. Some can take 2 or 3 rounds of antibiotics to clear. Try doing saline rinses as well to flush out some of the gunk.
