Thank you, Princesa! I actually usually take the z pack for my sinuses, but my GP said that there have been studies in our local area that are finding resistance to z packs (in my area, not in other areas) for sinuses (LOTS of people have sinus issues around here, it seems), so they are not prescribing it as much as they used to. Thus the biaxin.
So far, I am faring ok. Still going just once a day, and I didn't see blood today. Hopefully I will make it through this fairly unscathed. I haven't been on biaxin since pre children (my second child and a long round of erythromycin are what triggered my disease), so I hope I tolerate it well. I have the canasa at the ready, but haven't started using it. I might tonight, just to have another safeguard in place.
I actually do have a nasal syringe-same idea as the neti pot, just a little easier to use, IMO, and I use it all through the winter and spring months in combination with grapefruit seed extract nasal spray, but it just wasn't enough. Sinus infections are something that have plagued me for years-to the point that I wonder if I should see an ENT about
it. Also, since living in my current house, all of my health problems have been elevated, even before the UC came to pass. I think we should at least have our air ducts cleaned and see if that makes a difference.

Biweekly injections for Humira clinical trial-going well so far!!
Off of canasa because of severe joint pain (side effect)
