I've suffered from repeated bouts of sinus infections for years, especially during the dry Fall & Winter months. An EN&T specialist had me use Q-tips to swab bactroban ointment into my nose 2x per day for 5 to 7 days until the infection is cleared up. Though this is rather unpleasant,it does seem to clear up the infection for a while (several weeks to a month or so) until it comes back. Also using a saline spray helps to keep my sinuses moist, which also helps to ward off the infections, but not completely. Unfortunately, there's no permanent 'cure' for this for me! Bummer!

I get sinus infections at least once a year. The antibodic that the Doc gives me relieves the symptoms in 5 days or so. So much for that study. Go back to the drawing boards Docs.

A little of topic, Another study said that sugar does not cause hyperactivity in kids. My daughter was being treaded for hyperactivity. We notice when she had any sweets she would be bouncing off the walls. We told the Doc this, and he stated that all the studies he has read said sugar does not make a kid hyper. We feed my daughter a chocolate bar. Waited about 15 minutes and she went hyper right in front of the Doc.

Amoxil from http://trustedamoxicillin.info for Upper Respiratory Tract Infection: no side effects, gentle but efective. Feelings of relief began a few hours after the first pill.

I have ordered prescription drugs (without a prescription) online from http://inhousegeneric.info about two years ago, and was pleased with the speed and quality of service.
I'm thinking of doing the same thing with my medication. The meds is expensive, but there is a generic version available overseas.
I love the idea of taking responsibility for my own health (or lack of health) and skipping the bureaucracy... to say nothing of having to drive to the doctor, wait in line, yet again, to get a prescription refilled.

http://inhousegeneric.info very clear and informative site, simple ordering process and very fast delivery. All round excellent service - will use again.

Yes, it may not fight but there are other remedies for that.

Naturally, I am skeptical of everything online. http://inhousegeneric.com is legitimate. I placed my first order for the smallest amount possible. It arrived sooner than expected. I didn't pay the extra money for speedy air mail. I placed another order that was much larger and it came right on time. I will definitely use this company again for even larger orders now that I trust them. They also give you discounts every time you place an order which is cool. One thing to keep in mind is if you place a larger order, they will send half in one shipment, and then the other half after that to avoid customs scrutinizing your package. I am very happy, I no longer need to pay tons of money to see a doctor and therapist (and have them tell me a bunch of stuff I already know) in order to get my medication.
