Hi!

Yup, It's been about a week and I do notice a difference for the better, unfortunately I didn't get it soon enough.

Saturday morning I wound up going to the doctor and waiting for a (fill-in) spot in her schedule.

After helping the receptionist connect an external mouse to the laptop that she was using (the office PC apparently stopped working in a cloud of smole a couple of days earlier). I was called into an exam room and I sat on the exam table explaining my symptoms, answering my doctor's questions and explaining the dizzy/light-headed feeling that I had been getting a couple of times a day for the preceeding week. Towards the end of the exam, she advised that I have a sinus infection. I asked her if she would like to take a look in my nose, she waffled, but got the instrument and took a look and said that they were very red.

Hum, ok, so what do I do?

Start taking the Allegra-D again, 1 pill twice a day for 14 days (I was advised to stop taking them because they push my blood pressure up...) And I'm giving you a prescription for anti-biotics, ketek-pak, like Z-Pak, but gentler... Ok. Two pills at once every day for 5 days. I'm currently at day#4 and I notice a small improvement, but at dinner tonight I still had a little light-headedness. I remember reading that dizziness was a possible side effect of the med.

that's all for now...
