Post-nasal Drip: Another Ailment to Deal With
Post-nasal drip is a common symptom of many PF patients. I have had a post-nasal drip for as long as I can remember. There are many causes for this to happen and others whom are considered healthy can experience this nagging problem affecting one’s daily life, as well. I currently take Claritan and I still experience symptoms of post-nasal drip although not as severe as if I weren’t taking this allergy medication. I am also prescribed Singulair to combat my post nasal drip. Several years ago I conducted my own experiment. I don’t recommend this, but I stopped taking Claritan and Singulair to see how much these medicines relieved me of post-nasal drip symptoms. I would compare my new situation to a constantly running faucet. Needless to say after only a few days I went back on the medicines, and determined they were effective for me.
I recently came across an article titled, “Treatments for post-nasal drip”. The article was written by Robert H. Shmerling, MD from Harvard Medical School. The article is informative about providing relief from symptoms and also treatment possibilities.
I am curious to know how many of our members experience post-nasal drip and if so have you been treated for this ailment?
