Possible sinus infection...antibiotics?

Recommended Posts

I am prone to sinus infections since I have had two pituitary tumor surgeries and the docs found a cyst in my left sinus cavity. They didn't remove the cyst, but I have become prone to infections...not sure why, but I am positive I have one now. My only fear is antibiotics in the big pill or capsule form. Is this safe for the band and my stomach? I have been given amoxicillin in the past for these infections, but don't know how they will affect my stomach if anything. Since I don't take my GERD med(Prevacid) anymore, I am concerned about reflux, etc.

Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Talk to the doctor who is prescribing the medicine. Some capsules should not be cut up as they may be designed to be "time-release." But your doctor should be able to prescribe the medication in a form easier to swallow or a medication less upsetting to your stomach.
