The usual Adult dose for an Upper Respiratory Tract Infection is 250 to 500 mg orally every 6 hours for 7 to 10 days.

Anatomically speaking, the upper respiratory tract does include the sinuses, so it would be safe to assume that this would be the correct dose for this type of infection.

Is there anything else I can help you with?

Hi! Thanks for posting!

What has your doctor advised?

The usual dosage for something such as a sinus infection is 500mgs every 12 hours, but it can vary depending on the severity of the infection, so you should follow your doctor's instructions.
