A 27-year-old male asked:
if i'm allergic to dust mites and have asthma and i'm waking up with a stuffed nose and hacking up sticky clear/yellow mucus should i take albuterol?

Nasal spray: Use a saline nasal spray to help you with the post nasal drip and consult an allergist for long term relief of your symptoms, you may want to consider allergy shots.

Stuffy nose: It probably makes more sense to take an intranasal steroid then albuterol. Don't forget to put dust mite proof covers on your pillows, mattress and boxspring.
