I have bad allergies, sneezing, itchy eyes,SEVERE post nasal drip and asthma...( I have allergies all year but this is ridiculous) I went to my doctor who stated because I am a runner and biker these symptoms get worse with the change in the air and the effect it has on my lungs...She recommended Sudafed PE....does not work as well as Tylenol Severe Allergy..I have tried everything over the years...
I started having post nasal drip symptoms about 11 months ago. I have thin mucous that has to be continually coughed up. I have been to the ENT doctor many times and have tried everything including prilosec, clariten, steroid nasal sprays, asthma inhalers etc., chest xray. He said there is nothing else he can do. I have no history of allergies, heartburn etc. but did have tonsils out, septoplasty, uvela surgery etc five years ago for sleep apnea.
I have post nasal drip 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.
I have chronic post nasal drip which causes me to cough and hack . It makes a tickle in the back of my throat sometimes or it just drips and causes me to cough it up. I don't have a cold or sinus infection,I do have hay fever, but that usually subsides with medications. i am finding that nothing seems to help stop[ this problem for a long period of time. Claritin helps for a couple of hours, Benadryl helps but as soon as it wears off its back again.
Hello, This nasal drip is due to post nasal drip. Post-nasal drip (PND) occurs when excessive mucus is produced by the sinuses. The excess mucus accumulates in the throat or back of the nose. It can be caused by rhinitis, sinusitis, or laryngopharyngeal acid reflux. It can be enhanced or sometimes even caused by allergies. Please check out with an ENT specialist if you are having chronic rhinitis or sinusitis.
Hi, the other causes for long term cough besides asthma are GERD and post nasal drip 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.
Both ear infections and post nasal drip can both be caused by ALLERGIES or infections. Your doctors can help you sort out why you have either or both conditions & recommend appropriate treatment..
The side effects are atrocious, the worst of which was the insomnia, but it was worth it in the end. I had ZERO post nasal drip or sinus blockage, well, until the seasonal allergies kicked in again 9 months later. My problem, it seems, is that once I get a cold or allergies, the mucus producing glands (or whatever they are) don't know how to turn themselves off! The only way to "interrupt" my "mucus factory" seems to be systemic steroids.
I also had congestion and was prescribed flonase which helped but I occasionally still got congested. My main problem is post nasal drip. 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?

To summarize you could be having sinusitis and GERD needs to be ruled out.
It is possible that postnasal drip is due to allergies. It is also possible postnasal drip has nothing to do with allergies. Often prescription antihistamines are taken only when the postnasal drip gets bad. It may be more helpful to take the antihistamine on a regular basis. This may be enough to prevent the postnasal drip.
Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! Well, since the post nasal drip persists in your case you must think in lines of allergy. What is important is you must find out what is causing this allergy. Common allergens are pollen, mold, dust, pet dander, cosmetics or drugs. You must get an allergy test done, either a skin test or by RAST, to know what you are allergic to. Seasonal allergies are generally due to pollen or dust.
Okay I'm starting my second trimester, the very beginning of it, and while my morning sickness appears to have waned, I've got a horrid post-nasal drip that is still making me vomit sometimes. My doctor was an idiot and I don't have another appointment until I move and see another doctor. Did anyone have such a bad post-nasal drip, and if so what can be done for it? It's driving me nuts! -PS- I'm not sick or anything. Just that really bad drip.
I have post nasal drip & have been to the DR many times he gave me meds & none off them worked. I also been to a allergist no allergies the only time it really brothers me is at night when i lay down.why can't i find something that will help me ?
Hi, How are you? Post nasal drip is seen commonly in sinusitis, nasal polyps and allergies. Since all these causes have been excluded CPAP seems to be the most likely cause. CPAP is known to cause post nasal drip and dry cough in its users. I would suggest you to please consult an ENT specialist as soon as possible. Take care!
Just taking treatment will not help. You need to find the cause of post nasal drip. This could be due to allergy. If allergy is the cause you would need to take tests to rule this out. The other possibility is that you have a foreign body in nose or a deviated nasal septum. This makes a person prone to repeated infections and allergy like symptoms. Another possibility is laryngopharyngeal reflux. This throws the stomach content into the throat without heartburn.
Basically my main problem is post nasal drip. I constantly have this feeling in the back of my throat like something is there, and I constantly and sucking out/coughing out and spitting out mucus (white and clear). However, at random times during the day I have these short periods (last about 5 minutes or so) where I feel like I can't breathe. It's a very strange feeling....
I've suffered with CONSTANT post nasal drip for over a year now, and have tried all kinds of antihistamines off the shelf, & also had alergy tests done, which just tells me nothing. I've lived in the same place for about 10 yrs., so I just don't know what I'm alergic to. What kind of medicine can I take to get some relief? I'm totally fed up and depressed with constant clearing my throat for 24 hrs. a day.
help i cannot sleep i have got post nasal drip.
ipratropium bromide) state that they are effective for rhinorrhea but not for post-nasal drip. What does this mean? Isn't post-nasal drip just "rhinorrhea that runs down the throat"? 2) Is there anything else that it could be, other than rhinorrhea? 3) If is rhinorrhea, why am I getting zero coming out of the nose, when there is so much going down the throat? Aside from these questions, any other advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
i went to a neurologist to see if there was something wrong in my brain, that came back negative. then it was said that i have post nasal drip. i take rhinacort nasal spray and that does not seem to do anythng. now i have this lump in my throat, by the way i went to a gasteroligist and had a bareum sallow test and they found nothing there which leads me to believe that it is my post nasal drip making this happen, possibly irritating my throat and making it feel as though there is a lump.

I have had post nasal drip for the last 6 years. It is constant. It is thick and causes me to cough up mucus constantly. I have seen many doctors and specialists who have put me on acid reflux medicines, antibiotics, etc... nothing has worked! I am lost as to what this could be from and where to go next to try and get some relief, as nothing so far has worked. I am currently trying spariva, but this has not helped either. Has anyone else had this problem?

I was found to have acid-reflux and have had an operation (nissen fundoplication) to correct this which has stopped me from vomiting but post-nasal drip has not improved. It has now been found that I have a deviated nasal septum and allergies to pollen and mild dust allergy. My ENT specialist (?
