    Saw ent today. Anyone ever take augmentin?

    I saw ent today and she said my off balance feeling might be coming from either sinuses or inner ear issue. She has me on augmentin, 800mg twice daily and 6 course day of predinsone. She may need ct scan done of the sinuses if the meds don't work.

    Anyone ever feel better after taking the augmentin? Apparently I only have frontal sinus infection.

    It's a penicillin derivative that is often used to treat upper respiratory infections.

    I took eight weeks of Augmentin for a sinus infection that showed up on CT scan of sinuses. I also took 30 days of prednisone along with it. After all of that I still have symptoms and terrible coughing a year later. It seems as though every time I stop prednisone the symptoms just come back.

    You may need to be tested for cough variant asthma.

    Well I had to call in another prescription of the augmentin and will be done with second round tomorrow. My walking balance has improved but not my head. It's still got pressure in forehead when I stand up and bending it's still kind of bad and can make me feel off balance bending or leaning. My eyes feel like they won't focus some days on far objects but up close they feel fine. I notice it more when weather seems to change. I have stuffy nose off and on when laying down and clear drainage and post nasal drip. I'm ready for a ct scan of my full head along with my sinuses cause Im afraid I have a brain tumor cause I've googled too much.
