In brief: Not one

Newer antihistamines work to stop itching and sneezing, but unfortunately do little to stop drainage.
Older antihistamines may have some ability to stop mucus production, but have side effects like drowsiness. Daily saline rinse for the nose (eg, neti pot) can help. See your doctor or an allergist--there may be prescription meds (eg, ipratropium nasal spray) that can better treat your symptoms.
