I was prescribed Cefdinir 300 mg and 800 mg ibuprofen
Patient :I was prescribed Cefdinir 300 mg and 800 mg ibuprofen for bacterial sinusitis? I have taken my second dose and have to work on Monday. When will I begin to feel better and throat pain under control?
Thanks for your query.
Great to know that you are already taking Cefdinir and Ibuprofen.
If both the medicines start working well, you may get relief within a few days, maybe by Monday.
Bacterial sinusitis can sometimes take more time as it is a 'close-cavity' infection.
Do not worry, also take nasal decongestant drops 6 hourly to start with to be gradually reduced over time followed by steam inhalations. Also take multivitamins, PPI like Pantoprazole.
Hope for the best.
