Allergy: What do you take for Post nasal drip?

Started 1303602862.38 in Viewpoints | Last reply 1303660553.85 by Free2be

Have seasonal allergies with chronic post nasal drip. What are some remedies? I take Allerga and sudaphed and they don't work.

I use a neti pot - have been for about a year now. It really helps a lot.

I also buy olive leaf extract capsules to help control my allegries - been taking those for about 3+ years now and haven't had to take over the counter meds for my allegries since then.

When I came down with a terrible cold and sinus infection recently I purchased a nasal spray called Sovereign Silver and it knocked it out including the post nasal drip. I bought it at Whole Foods and it was around $8. Here it is.

What is a neti pot?

you can get them at any drug store now. Yes, it looks strange - it took me a couple of years to build up the courage to use one, but once I started using it, no problems with it.

a shot of whiskey might work, and if it doesn't try another one, and then you won't CARE about the post nasal drip!!

Come to find out, my parents were treated with home remedies like that....back in the 20's and 30's......And we wonder why that generation likes their drink! Holy Moly....whiskey for kids!

For nasal congestion I use Sudafed. For nasal dripping I use Zyrtek. Good luck to you!

I forgot, a friend mentioned oil of oregano herbal drops.

I take 180 mg of Allegra w/2 Sudafed in the morning and a half of Benedryl at night. I also use Saline Mist because I'm too lazy to mess with a neti pot.

I've been miserable the past few days, made my asthma flare up also, have been having terrible coughing jags and my eyes are so puffy it's disgusting. Not a pretty sight.{#emotions_dlg.blink}

Try 1/4 of a pill Benadryl Allergy or a drugstore generic equivilant. Make sure it is for allergy relief only......not for a combination of remedies. Do not take the whole pill. It will make you drowsy. One quarter of a pill works just as well without the drowsiness.

Forgot to mention, I take it before I go to bed. It makes you too drowsy during the day.

Mucinex will help to thin the post nasal drip to make it more tolerable. It's available without a prescription.

For me, nothing works better than nasal irrigation to just remove irritants and bacteria. I haven't taken any sinus or cold medications in over 20 years. If I spray I use only saline.

I have a neti pot but forget to use it until I'm miserable. I take an over-the-counter allergy pill only if I'm having trouble sleeping.

I hate this drip. Worse, the sneeze and the run to the bathroom!

I'm going to look for that olive leaf extract! Thanks for the tip, biancardi.
