My doctor prescribed doxycycline for a sinus infection and a bad cough. She told me that doxycycline is used for sinus infections. Is it ok if I took it?

I am currently taking doxycycline for a chronic sinus infection after several other antibiotics failed. I also had surgery about six weeks ago. Fortunately, I am finally finding relief—the infection and wicked cough seem to be relenting with the doxycycline (100mg twice a day).
I have some doubt about it. Doxycycline is more commonly used to treat acne. For sinus infection, most doctors would probably prescribe Amox875mg/Clavulanic acid 125mg.
I know doxycycline can be used for a range of a number of things such as bladder infections and kidney infections as well as dermatitis and skin rashes and acne
My Doctor gave me Doxycycline 100 mg twice a day for a sinus infection.
Hi, Mang! If it's prescribed by your doctor at the proper dosage doxycycline is an excellent choice for upper respiratory infections.
I’ve had this prescribed for this purpose. I have chronic sinus issues so get antibiotics quite often. Doc rotates them
Not really if you have some around it could do more harm than good Antibiotics is nothing to play with it can make you immune to the one the doctor would prescribe for you Best to call the Doctor and let them know what is going on.
