Allegra for post nasal drip

Common Questions and Answers about Allegra for post nasal drip


Avatar f tn I also had congestion and was prescribed flonase which helped but I occasionally still got congested. My main problem is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>post</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>drip</span>. I don't have the regular itchy throat or runny nose but post nasal drip is killing me. The mucus feels like its just stuck in the back of my throat and makes me sick to my stomach. I was also prescribed astelin nasal spray and it helped some but I still get post nasal drip. Is there any other medication out there that would help?
Avatar f tn Hi, the other causes for long term cough besides asthma are GERD and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>post</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>drip</span> from allergies. GERD is gastro esophageal reflux disease where the stomach acids come back into the esophagus and spill into the windpipe causing cough. Treatment with antacids will help neutralize the acids. post nasal drips can occur with sinusitis and throat infections. Giving up cigarettes will abolish smoker's cough in 90% of people.
Avatar m tn I have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>post</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>drip</span> that suddenly came on 9 months ago. I have been to my ENT doctor several times and he has prescribed Clariten, Prilosec, nasal steroids, chest x-ray, motrin, asthma inhaler, Mucinex and other over the counter medications and nothing has worked. I have clear mucous with continual throat clearing which is causing me to have problems concentrating at work. It seems to be coming up from the chest and I have a slight runny nose.
Avatar n tn ME TOO!!! I have battled the PND for years.I have to be really careful not to catch a cold because it can last months and months due to the wonderful enviroment my PND has provided. I would agree that psuedoephidrine is great for drying up and alleviating cough but now available only on script. The TCM equivalent is Ephedra.I have also had some success with clearing the sinuses with acupuncture. It is also definitly worth stopping both dairy and gluten products in the diet .
Avatar n tn Last week had a sore throat when i went to bed woke up in morning looked at throat saw long pieces of mucous up behind uvulva stretched to tongue.Checked symptoms on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>post</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>drip</span> and everything seems to fit.I keep having sneezing fits keep needing to twiddle my nose or run my finger across it sometimes without noticing had a little bit of eye pain at beginning which went away and has now come back again slightly like tired eyes. Little headaches at front of head above eyes.

Avatar m tn Hello, What you seem to be having is chronic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>post</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>drip</span>. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>post</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>drip</span> is mucus accumulation in the back of the nose and throat leading to, or giving the sensation of, mucus dripping downward from the back of the nose. post-nasal drip can be caused by excessive or thick secretions, or impairment in the normal clearance of mucus from the nose and throat.
Avatar n tn How do you know for a fact that you are having <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>post</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>drip</span>. Can you actually feel the mucous trickle down the back of your throat? Is your nose stuffed up? I've been told I have postnasal drip but my only symptoms are the throat clearing, chest tightness and cough, which commonly leads to bronchial infections a few times every winter. I've been taking Mucinex to help with the excess mucous, and it helps a ton, but I still want to know which way the mucous coming from.
Avatar f tn I noticed my taste buds are red and my tongue seems to have sticky saliva now, probably due to the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>post</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>drip</span>. I've been taking Prilosec and allegra... I don't know what keeps causing this. I'm also taking allergy shots monthly. Do you think this could be a blockage of some sort? Would I need sinus surgery?
Avatar n tn i have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>post</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>drip</span> and sinus infections to the point that i have to pour salt water in my nose once a week. i'm sure someone out there can relate. i use to get sore throats, now it just feel like it's a blockage in my throat, i can swallow and eat but you can feel that it is not going down like it should. has anyone experienced this?? i have sinus problems so badthat a lot of time i feel as though i am getting dizzy or in another zone. does anyone experience this??
Avatar n tn One is that an irritant (reflux, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>post</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>drip</span> for example) is causing irritation of pain and/or triger the cough receptors (nerves) in your throat. Another possibility is that there is actually a physical “something” lodged beneath the surface of your throat (for example, a small piece of ingested bone, such as chicken bone or some other foreign body) that was not visible on endoscopy.
Avatar n tn I have had bad <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>post</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>drip</span> most of my life and a cough to go along with it. I notice now that the cough almost sounds like a smoker's cough sometimes, goes along with a tightness in the chest. Other times I am fine, although the drip goes on! I have been using a steroid nasal spray, but it doesn't seem to help that much. What's out there to dry up that drip outside of just becoming an antihistamine junkie??
633143 tn?1262137135 post-nasal drip can be caused by excessive or thick secretions, or impairment in the normal clearance of mucus from the nose and throat. Various causes for chronic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>post</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>drip</span> are allergies,viral infections,deviated <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span> septum,chronic sinusitis,adenoid enlargement and diseases like sarcoidosis and GERD. Till the cause is treated,post nasal drip cannot be treated.So I think that an allergist’s and a simultaneous ENT surgeon’s opinion will be the best in confirming a diagnosis.
Avatar m tn Hello and hope you are doing well. It can as inflammation in the nose and sinuses can cause inflammation around the Eustachian tube, which is the tube that runs from the back of the nose to the middle ear and is responsible for draining the middle ear of fluid. If there is Eustachian tube dysfunction from nose or sinus inflammation, fluid can remain in the middle ear which can lead to ear pain. You will need to consult your primary care physician for proper assessment.
Avatar m tn I went to the doctor and he prescribed me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>allegra</span> and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span> Spray for treatment. The first six months I didn't take them because my cough went away and I felt fine. Then I started coughing again and he told me to take it. I took the allegra and it helped but I've never been a fan of the nasal spray so I still didn't use it. I got sick at work and started coughing again and it didn't go away for a long time. I tried the nasal spray for a few weeks, finally and it only made me sicker.
Avatar n tn I have had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>post</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>drip</span> and cough and weasing at night. I go to bed and anywhere from 1am to 4am I wake up coughing. Sometimes so bad that I throw up. I start weasing and then I end up awake anywhere from 1 to 3 hours. I seem to be doing ok during the day. I went to the doctor and this is what I do. A salt and baking soda wash in the am. I take allegra and singular. Then a nose spray as well. And some cough medicine that helps stops the cough. The doctor said that my sinus are swolen.
Avatar m tn I've tried supplementing with a Neti Pot nasal wash, gargling with warm salt water, snorting warm salt water (before I found the neti pot of course), and using a saline <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span> spray. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span> rinse helps a little but not for a long enough time to be truly considered relief in my opinion. I've been to the doctor twice; the first time he prescribed Veramyst and allegra-D, the second time he prescribed the aforementioned stuff. This is driving me crazy.
Avatar n tn I too have an issue where all types of food is passed into my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>post</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span> cavity. This is very uncomfortable and causes me to gag witch only delivers a small amount of regergitated food into the cavity, not helping the issue at all. I also try the snorting, blowing and all else I can get the back of my throught to do, but only after hours of discomfort, does it remove its self.
Avatar n tn I have been to an ENT, no concern apparently for a CT scan. I have been to an allergist and he seems to think that my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span> area is being compromised by "something"...possibly chemicals??????????? I will post any further info and wish us all luck in finding the never ending solution.
Avatar f tn But prior to that - for past few weeks I've had nonstop <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>post</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>drip</span>. Now my jaws top and bottom get achy at times and It sometimes travels down my neck. My throat feels irritated and when I eat it feels like a lump or tight. The thyroid is not causing this. I started Flonase a few days ago and allegra. My question is should I be worried that it's throat cancer or something serious. I would think having 2 thyroid ultrasounds something would be seen. Also no swollen glands or lymph nodes.
Avatar n tn I have had postnasal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>drip</span> for 7 years. My ENT tried Flonase, Astelin and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>allegra</span>-d. Now she says that surgery is my next option. I decided to try nasal irrigation. I used a baby aspirator and did it exactly as shown on a website. When I pumped the solution into my one nostril, it did not come out the other side as the website said it should. Am I doing something wrong? Also, how long does it usually take to see results?
Avatar n tn hi, your problem could be due to chronic sinusitis, which can result in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>post</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>drip</span> and chronic coughing. You should contact your doctor and get a work-up done to confirm this diagnosis. Also, taking steriod nasal spray will help your condition.
Avatar n tn By mid March I went back to the clinic. The doctor there said I had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>post</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>drip</span> and had fluid in my ear. He told me to take mucinexd. It didnt seem to help. Same symptoms persisted another month. I went back in April, where a different nurse practitioner said I still had post nasal drip and gave me veramyst. This also didnt seem to do anything. By then I began to research online trying to self diagnose myself but cannot seem to come up with anything.
Avatar m tn However, for the past 1 year I've had an occasional stuffy nose and a constant relentless <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>post</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>drip</span> which I ignored since it caused me no other problems. In the past 2 months I began to feel very tired, began to have a lot more mucus build up, sometimes teary or burning eyes, occasional cough, etc. It made me feel so tired, sluggish and drowsy that I could barely function at work. Initially my doctor suspected a sinus infection and gave me antibiotics.

Avatar n tn So I took Sudafed Allergy and it cleared up my nose so that I didn't have to blow it BUT left me with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>post</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span> drip instead. NOW I cough from an annoyed throat and lung congestion.with normal relaxed breathing I hear/feel the lung congestions & seems like I can't take a deep breath (I can) and if I do activity where I exert myself...I actually have no problems with the lungs. Is this normal for allergies??????? I am new to this whole seasonal allergy thing.
Avatar dr m tn This is called chronic or nonallergic rhinitis, when the involuntary nervous system in your nose overreacts to irritants, chemical, odors, or weather changes (either pressure, temperature, or humidity changes). Symptoms include runny nose, sneezing, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span> congestion, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>post</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nasal</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>drip</span> and headaches, and is often mistaken for regular allergies. This condition may respond to regular allergy medications, but not as well.
