2016). 2.Would you treat Mr. JDs cold? Why or why not? 3. What would you prescribe and for how many days? Include the class of the medication, mechanism of action, route, the half-life; how it is metabolized in and eliminated from the body; and contraindications and black box warnings. The first line drug to treat sinusitis is amoxicillin with or without clavulanate which is an antibacterial. I would prescribe Augmentin 500mg/125mg or 875mg/125mg tablets PO BID for 7 days depending on the severity of the infection. Augmentin is amoxicillin with clavunate potassium (Woo, & Robinson, 2016). Amoxicillin is an extended spectrum penicillin and clavunate potassium is a beta-lactamase inhibitor. The mechanism of action for this drug is to inhibit bacterial cell wall synthesis by the amoxicillin binding to proteins within the bacterial cell wall, thus inhibiting synthesis. Clavunate potassium
