What Kind Of Pills Or Treatment Can Somebody Get For Post Nasal Drip
Post nasal drip is a term used to describe the common symptoms of sore throat and cough in the presence of a runny nose with sufferers experiencing a worsening of symptoms at night with mild relief during the day. Allergies or nasal/sinus infection cause excess mucous to "drip" into the throat when lying down resulting in congestion, irritation, and inflamation of ...Read more
Whooping cough: Caused by the bacteria bordetella pertussis. There are antibiotics that can hasten the resolution, but the best strategy is prevention by getting your pertussis vaccination (usually in the form of dtap for kids, or tap for adults). Pertussis is making a comeback, thanks to those who say vaccines are an unnecessary conspiracy. Babies have died in outbreaks. http://www.cdph.ca.gov/pages/nr. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
GLutathione: Nebulized glutathione is a great adjunct for any/all respiratory illnesses. It needs to be compounded and administered with a nebulizer. If that is not available, liposomal glutathione, taken orally, is available from several companies. It is expensive but darn well worth the money. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Sore throat: Treatment for sore throat depends upon the cause. 90% of cases are caused by a virus, and there are no antibiotics against this type of virus. Treatment is just with ibuprofen, fluids, and waiting it out. 5-10% of cases are caused by the strep germ (strep throat), and this is treated with penicillin or other comparable antibiotics. ...Read more
Rhinorrhea: Rhinorrhea (runny nose) is quite common and is most often due to viral or allergy causes. Symptomatic relief such as antihistamines are often the best means of dealing with this problem. Although I am loathe to use sprays, sometimes nasal spray (afrin) at bedtime can control the rhinorrhea enough to allow for easy breathing at night. Topical steroids (nasonex) works for nasal symptoms of allergy. ...Read more
Chronic pain: Chronic pain treatment depends on where it is, what it is caused by and what you have done.

Prostatitis Rx: There are two kinds of prostatitis: acute (usually more severe) and chronic (most common). Chronic prostatitis is generally treated with several weeks (2-6) of antibiotics like Ciprofloxacin or trimethorprim-suflamethoxazole. Acute prostatitis is usually treated in the hospital with intravenous antibiotics because this condition can be associated with bacteria in the blood stream and shock. ...Read more
Well...: Meds alone won't fix the problem. I usually treat bruxism with an anterior bite plane worn 24x7 for 2 weeks which then goes to night-time wear only after the first two weeks. I also usually prescribe a steroid (medrol (methylprednisolone) dose pack) for the first week of therapy. This works 99% of the time. If that doesn't do the trick, there are other meds as a 2nd line therapy, . ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Many treatments: People achieve abstinence through 'cold turkey,' with and without counseling, acupuncture, hypnosis and many many other ways. Nicotine replacement therapy with gum, patches and other forms, as well as the antidepressant bupropion also work well, but the best results have come with a combination of Chantix® (varenicline) and a formal smoking cessation program. Call 1-800-QUITNOW, doctor/pharmacist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Antibiotics: Endomyometritis is an infection of the uterine muscle that occurs after childbirth in some cases, most commonly after cesarean. There is a less severe version called "endometritis" that is more common after vaginal delivery. Both are treated with antibiotics. In severe cases where there is fever or signs of sepsis, inpatient IV antibiotics may be required. ...Read more
Depends: Post nasal drip is a feeling and not a clinical condition or a pathological entity. It is that abnormal feeling of mucus in the throat and it can be due to many different causes ranging from allergies, sinus infections and viruses to atypical reflux or a reaction to things that you eat and drink. I have cured more people of "postnasal drip" by having them stop drinking coffee tea and soda. ...Read more
Postnasal drip: The standard treatment is with an otc antihistamine like Benadryl (diphenhydramine) (sedating) or Claritin (non-sedating). If this does not control symptoms, the next step is to use the combination form of antihistamines like claritin-d, or allegra-d. If that doesn't work, you'll need to see a doctor for a prescription medication. ...Read more

Have post nasal drip sore throat and body aches. What's the best course of treatment? Will it go away on own? Thank you,
Maybe: If it is allergies you can take Allegra (fexofenadine) over the counter and this will improve your problem. If the sore throat is an issue you can see a doctor and get screened for strep so you do not have to take antibiotics unecessarily. Ofte time the antiseptic mouthwashes if gargled daily can improve the situation. The body aches can also resolve simply with excedrin. Drink fluids. See a doctor if worried. ...Read more

Nasal congestion: You likely have allergic rhinitis. Some people have only seasonal allergies while other have year round allergy symptoms. Typically year-round allergies are triggered by allergens such as pets, dust mites, mold or even cockroach. Nasal steroid sprays are generally most effective for nasal stuffiness. However nasal saline rinses will help a lot as well. There other treatment options as well. ...Read more
Have clear nasal drainage with asthma. Dr gave steriod shot in hip with nasonex (mometasone). Nebulizer treatment made lung function better but i keep having cough?
Good that : Your asthma is under control. You will need to maintain your steroid treatment for at least three months and wean off from your albuterol gradually . Oftentimes we forget that using a nebulizer also loosens up nasal mucus that drains in the back of the throat causing persistent coughing! continue your meds as prescribed. Talk to doctor if concerned or condition worsened. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have a 7 wk old w/nasal congestion/coughing started sun nt. No fever but chokes on the phlegm going down her throat a few times ea.Hr. Hm treatment?
Nasal wash: At 7 weeks the primary cause of congestion is the environment. House dust, fragrance, perfumes, detergent or cleaning products all leave scents that may not bother you but irritate a babies nose. A good nasal clean out with saline can remove much of this irritant load, but removing the offending irritants from babies life helps more in the long run.Air particle filters can also help. ...Read more
7 wk old has nasal congestion/coughing. Chokes on phlegm going down throat several times ea hr. Started sun NT no fever.Hm treatment? When to call dr?
See your doctor: In an older infant or child these symptoms would fit the common cold. In the first 3 months, coughing is less common and a little more concerning. Conditions for your doc to "rule out" would include bronchiolitis (swelling of the small airways of the chest) and whooping cough. Signs of big trouble would include blueness around the lips, poor feeding, fever or listlessness. ...Read more
6 months babu with persistent cough, nasal congestion and wheezing. the fever (102°f) went away 3 days ago. as a treatment only sodium chloride inhal?
Bronchiolitis: At this age the airways are so small that a little swelling causes the obstruction with wheezing rather than bronchospasm as in asthma. RSV is often the cause. I know it's hard to watch your baby get sick like this but should make a full recovery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
