Sinus Infection Medications
Pain relievers to manage pain and other symptoms of sinus infections or sinusitis include:
- Acetaminophen (Tylenol and others)
- Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), for example, ibuprofen (Advil and Motrin) and naproxen (Aleve)
Some people have sinus infections because of other conditions or diseases. For example, people with asthma have airway narrowing and are at a higher risk of developing sinusitis.
