Answer

The treatment of sinusitis includes appropriate antibiotic coverage, as well as the use of analgesics (eg, NSAIDs, acetaminophen) and nasal decongestants. Analgesics are also useful for chronic, postconcussive headaches, but there is the risk of medication-overuse headaches if analgesics are used 10 or more days per month.
