Antibiotics are usually not needed for acute sinusitis. Most of these infections go away on their own. Antibiotics may be used if there are signs of bacterial infection - your doctor will be able to help you with this.
Clindamycin may help with sinusitis but there are other more commonly used antibiotics for it. Please see links below.
