Loose cough after eating and some in the mornings. Constant throat clearing for a few yrs. Psst smoker quit 2yrs ago. Tried Zantac still have issue?
Need to examine:
It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without examining you, however, zantac is not an appropriate medication for your issue. Your symptoms do not seem to indicate any serious health condition.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

All day everyday constantly clearing throat, swallow alot feels like something not letting saliva go down, plegm buildup, worse after I eat. Why?
Could be GERD w/LPR: Exposure of the vocal cords to stomach acid, pepsin will result in inflammation of the vocal cords (as is also often seen with acid regurgitation). Acute laryngitis may result, but watch out for chronic hoarseness, throat clearing, airway spasms, bronchitis, an asthma-type presentation, and even a higher risk of throat cancer. Impedance pH testing with a symptom diary can best characterize this. ...Read more

Could be allergies: Are causing his nasal drainage (which causes throat clearing). Environmental allergens (molds & dust are noticable during winter months, and you've seen his symptoms for 6 months), but foods can also cause similar symptoms.

Post-nasal drip: It is not unusual to have thick mucus draining from the nose and sinuses after a sinus infection that may linger for weeks to months.

See and ENT doctor to evaluate this. ...Read more
