In brief: Runny Nose B Gone

You can use an over-the-counter decongestant pill.
Be careful if you have high blood pressure. Don't take it later in the day [can keep you awake]. Don't use decongestant nose spray [like afrin] more than 3 days because of rebound. Even better: prevention! what's the cause? Common cold [ride it out]? Allergies [nasal saline, hayfever meds]? Other causes? Good luck.

In brief: Doubtful but...

Have you tried different Dr.'s? Allergists, ENT, respiratory specialists? There could be some type of trigger that is creating and need to get to source rather than treating symptoms with meds, etc
