Is there anything I can get from the grocery store or drug store for my runny nose until I can see a doctor?

In brief: Antihistamines

Antihistamines sometimes help with runny nose, especially the older ones such as Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and chlortrimeton.
They're notorious for making people sleepy, though - don't plan on driving after taking them.
