Sinus and bronchitis
Doxycycline is used, sometimes, in the treatment of Bronchitis. However, it is not preferred in the treatment of Sinusitis.
Without chronic conditions compounding an acute infection, antibiotics for these conditions are somewhat useless. The likely culprit is a virus, so symptom management is better idea. (decongestant; ibuprofen; acetaminophen; cough suppressant, etc.)
If antibiotics are indicated:
Doxy for either of these conditions is rare. I'd be more likely to see a penicillin family like Augmentin or plain Amoxicillin.
It is a tetracycline antibiotic and help in killing some bacteria. It is mostly used in chronic conditions and yes, of course in rare or some chances this is used for sinusitis and bronchitis.
I was treated with Docycyline for a sinus infection and it worked, it has to be for the right one to cure you, may need a culture done to fine out, good luck to you.
