I am on day 5 of taking Augmentin for a sinus infection that also is in my ears. They feel so clogged and believe it it affecting my hearing. I contacted my Dr. today to say the Augmentin is half gone and I have really no relief and my ears seem worse. I will begin taking Ceftin and am hoping for the best. Times past I have had to be on prednisone to make the swelling of my ear tubes go down. Will Cetin help me?
