... still no help. Does anybody have any ideas? Mucinex does NOTHING!
I have post nasal drip and I take Atrovent by prescription for it. If I don't my nose drips all day and it makes me cough because it drip in my throat too.
Good luck hope this helps!
Are you drinking planty of water? Staying well hydrated will help to thin the secretions-this can go a long way in helping you. Be sure to stay away from milk/dairy products as they make mucous thicker. You might see a pulmonologist to be sure that you dont have any kind of allergies or asthma. Sometimes people with chronic cough and thick mucous actually have asthma but dont necessarily have any wheezing at all and you might benefit from an inhaler like Albuterol. If it is allergy related, something like Nasonex or Flonase might be of help.
I have the same exact symptoms, but have not been able to get any clear diagnosis or been able to prevent it. I've been to GP, ENT and Allergist. I'm going back to the allergist this Thursday. I got desperate one night and stumbled onto Flonase nasal spray. I spray it up my nose and lay down and let it drip down my throat. It gives me enough relief to calm the anxiety I get. Have you ever gotten resolution on yours?
Hello, I have similar symptoms. My sister has also but worse than me. Upon her Doc's advice, she changed her diet by stopping grains, most sugar and dairy. But it didn't help! Then she heard about Guaifenesin. She gets the OTC CVS version and takes it twice a day. She asked her doc if it was OK to take on an ongoing basis and she said absolutely yes. It's really helped! I'm thinking of trying it also.
