Depends: There are many causes for a runny nose, and what works for one will not necessarily work for another. For allergies, antihistamine or nasal steroid work well, for colds usually time alone is best, for other causes sometimes Atrovent Nasal Spray is helpful, although very drying. If it's a frequent problem, it's worth finding out the root cause from your doctor.
