Do severe sinus infections benefit from a 2nd round of Z-pak?

- infections, sinusitis
I had a severe sinus infection a month ago that improved with Z-pak, but did not entirely clear. A month later, it is back. Would I benefit from a double dose of Z-pak? I can tolerate it well, as opposed to having bad side effects from other meds like Augmentin and Levaquin.

Yes, if your doctor thinks it's appropriate it's fine to have another course of Z-Pak.
