Best nasal spray for post nasal drip?

No single best spray. Unfortunately, there's no single best spray for everyone in the States where HealthTap docs are located. It's even trickier to determine best spray for someone outside of States, in say UK. Saline sprays (salt water) are safe. Sinus rinses are fine as long as you don't use tap water. In States, some corticosteroid sprays are available OTC w/o prescription. Stay away from nasal decongestants sprays.

Post nasal drip. Antihistamine nasal spray should not be used more that 4 days in a row. Beyond that you will have rebound nasal congestion and stuffiness. Saline (salt water) rinses can help to clear the congestion. Over the counter steroid nasal spray may be helpful. Follow up with your doctor if you are not improving. Read more...
