Sinus Infection/Augmentin Dose

Hi,

I've been prescribed augmentin for sinus infections before in the US and am trying to remember what a "standard" dose would be there. I am traveling abroad, have a sinus infection and have just been to the doctor and gotten a prescription, and the dose seems really high (625 mg 3 times a day). Does anyone have experience taking this? Does that dose seem quite high to you as well? I'm not sure if I should get another opinion...I don't want to take more than is necessary.
