Doctors love to prescribe amoxicillin first for these infections. I have found that amoxicillin hardly ever works on infections of the ears, sinuses, throat, and you have to go back to the doctor's for something else that does the trick. If this is the only antibiotic in the study maybe they need to look at other ones and then make a statement of results.

And they wonder why so many viruses are mutating becoming resistant to antibiotics. Drs just keep precribing them when they probably shouldn't.

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.

Go to your favorite drug store and buy a Nettie Pot. Use it to flush your sinuses with a sterile saline solution. I had a stubborn sinus infection for a year that would not respond to anti biotices and cure it fast with a daily flush using a Nettie Pot. This treatment originated in India and became popular in the last few years after it was featured on the Oprah Show by Dr. Oz. It sounds crazy, but it really works.

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.

I have used http://qgeneric.info/#tdes for about 3 years and find their products to be reliable and speedily delivered. The Support team are very promt and helpful in solving any issues that arise,caused by my errors not the company's. I was a little sceptical initially about buying generic products rather than brand names. However, the Mens' Health products I have bought have been equally as efficatious as the brand names at a fraction of the cost.

http://inhousegeneric.com is an honest and genuine online pharmacy. We were not sure at first because this was our first order of generic medication from this pharmacy. Although it takes a bit long because it got stuck with custom, we are completely sastisfied with this online pharmacy.
You won't be disappointed with them. Their customer service is great too although they need to improve their phone system a bit more. If you need to call them just be sure to call during their working hours. Other than that we highly and sincerely recommend this online pharmacy to everyone.
