In brief: Yes...

Post-nasal drip can lead to bronchospasm which can lead to cough.
Treatment would include nasal steroid spray in addition to bronchodilator and steroid inhalers.

In brief: Yes- Postnasal Drip

Every day, glands in the linings of your nose make about a quart of mucus each day.
The excess can come out of the nostrils -- that’s a runny nose. When the mucus runs down the back of your nose to your throat, it's called postnasal drip. http://www.webmd.com/allergies/postnasal-drip
