Reviews for Omnicef to treat Sinusitis
Review by t.i.g:
Fantastic at clearing the sinus infection. I'm on day 4 and it's almost completely gone. The first two days were miraculous.
But then. Starting day 3 ...
My stomach and intestines are rumbling almost constantly and I'm "pooping" brown water 5+ times a day.
I'm also utterly exhausted and weak, making it virtually impossible to actually do anything.
If this gets much worse, I'm going to have to stop using this before the 10-day course runs out.
300mg 2 x day for 7 days prescribed for Sinusitis. I think I may have felt like I was getting slightly better the 2nd and 3rd day but after that it went back to the same as before. No adverse side effects, just didn't seem to work.

I have taken many, many times for my chronic sinus infections and it seems to be the only thing that ever gets rid of the infection. I do get stomach aches from it, and nausea but it does what it's supposed to.

Omnicef was effective in treating my daughter's sinusitis. However, she broke out in hives a day after finishing the medication. Although it is not certain the medicine caused her hives, it is very ironic that they broke out within 24 hours of finishing the antibiotic.
