    It is a good thing you caught the sinus infection. My mom had gotten a sinus infection that spread to her ears and she ended up with some perminent hear loss. After that she had developed a heart condition. Even more scary my husbands ex-father in law had gotten a sinus infection which actually ate away the bone seperating the brain from the sinus cavity. He already had one major surgery and now must go back for another, very serious and scary, surgery to fix it.

    Until this happened to our family I had no idea that a sinus infection could do so much damage.

    No, I wouldn't take phen while on all those other meds. That's great that you haven't gained anything though.

    Sorry you are dealing with this. Just do what you were instructed to do until you are 100%. If you notice that the steroids are increasing your appetite try adding more protein and fiber to your diet to combat that feeling. Feel better soon.

    Default All aboard the steroid train

    Well add another one to the steroid train. I've been dealing with what I thought was just a cold for the last 3 or 4 weeks. Nope, finally went back to doctor and I have a sinus and an ear infection. I had a shot of steroids and am on antibiotics, a nasal spray and some kind of allergy pill. I was told to stop taking the Phen until I'm done with the meds. Now I did stop Phen for the last 4 days to be able to take OTC cold medicine. I looked at a drug interaction chart online and even asked my Pharmacist if there would be any interactions with the 3 meds, the shot and my Phen. She told me that to wait a day before starting the Phen because of the steroid shot. Hmmmm. What do you think? I'm not sure what to do.

    On a positive note I've been off the Phen for 5 or 6 days now and haven't gained/lost anything.
