Copious mucus: Allergic rhinitis, vasomotor rhinitis (non-allergic; triggered by things like cigarette smoke, diesel fumes, perfumes), chronic sinusitis are some causes of post-nasal drainage. Otc antihistamines like claritin/ zyrtec/benadryl, nasal saline spray, prescription nasal steroid sprays may help after good exam by doc to determine the cause.
