In brief: Check your allergies

Allergies is a common cause of post nasal drip.
You may be eating something or inhaling something you are allergic to. You can try a process of elimination. Notice what you are exposed to and eliminate them one by one and observe any change in your symptoms. Using the netti pot to clear the passage ways can be helpful. Smoking cigarettes can be an underlying cause as well.

In brief: Allergy/nasal irriga

Often you can improve the post nasal drip by avoiding allergens or irritants/irrigating the nose with saline sprays or douches daily and sometimes using medications.

In brief: Different options

Post nasal drip is commonly the result of chronic nasal or sinus inflammation.
In general the treatment option include: identifying the cause of the post nasal drip and avoidance measures, nasal steroids or nasal antihistamines, nasal saline sprays, and if allergy is a major component then allergy vaccine therapy may be helpful.
