Our family, town and school is FILLED with people who have this URI/head congestionn/sinus infection and very nasty long lasting bug. Dr. gave me augmentin after z pack wasn't enough. My rheumy told me when I get this sick is when I need the most prednisone, and suggested the 40mg/for a week, then 30mg etc. dose. And it's not influenza, oh joy. My husband has it now, and if he keeps whining so much, I may be forced to....well, let me just say there won't be witnesses.
God knows, even if I don't....
