Antibiotics that doctors typically prescribe for sinus infections do not reduce symptoms any better than an inactive placebo, according to investigators at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. “Patients don’t get better faster or have fewer symptoms when they get antibiotics,” says Jay F.
