How Do I Get Rid Of Pos

For Persitant bad breath/halitosis visit

I know of no evidence that chlorpheniramine bonds with hydrocodone. I do not know of any way to explain the drainage stopping within an hour of when you took the first dose of Tussionex� (hydrocodone bitartrate and chlorpheniramine maleate). That is not the way Tussionex� (hydrocodone bitartrate and chlorpheniramine maleate) works.

Mucus from the nose and sinuses dripping down the back of the throat is called postnasal drip. The fat content in dairy products can thicken this mucus. Generally eating dairy products with less fat content is helpful. Drinking plenty of water will help to thin the mucus so that it moves more easily. As long as you are not on a fluid restriction you should be drinking 6 to 8 8-ounce glasses of non-caffeine non-alcoholic fluid daily. When you feel the need to clear your throat sip some water to clear the mucus.

An antihistamine, like the chlorpheniramine, can dry up the postnasal drip. However, it may make the mucus thicker and more difficult to move. A decongestant like Sudafed� (pseudoephedrine) can thin the postnasal drip and decrease the swelling so it drains easier. A combination antihistamine-decongestant will do both. Check with your doctor to see if a combination antihistamine-decongestant would help you more. Often an antihistamine and decongestant are taken only when the postnasal drip gets bad. It may be more helpful to take the antihistamine and decongestant on a regular basis. Singulair� (montelukast sodium) helps when the irritation is due to allergies.

A nasal wash helps remove mucus from your nose and sinuses. This can temporarily decrease the postnasal drip and lessen throat clearing. Please read our nasal wash treatment information at to learn more about this technique. Share this information with your doctor to see if you would benefit from this daily treatment. A nasal wash is most helpful when done daily. The best time of day to do a nasal wash is before using any nasal spray. Then the nasal spray can work better since the nasal and sinus tissue is free from mucus.

A prescription antihistamine nasal spray, like Astelin� (azelastine), helps when the postnasal drip is due to allergies. When the postnasal drip is thin and watery Atrovent� Nasal Spray (ipratropium bromide) may help to dry this up. A prescription nasal steroid spray decreases mucus production by decreasing the inflammation of the nose and sinuses. This may prevent the postnasal drip and throat clearing. A nasal steroid spray does not provide immediate relief of symptoms. It may need to be used every day for several weeks to months for it to help. Sometimes it takes the antihistamine, the decongestant, and the nasal wash followed by Astelin� (azelastine), Atrovent� Nasal Spray (ipratropium bromide), and the nasal steroid spray ALL used routinely to keep the postnasal drip from bothering you.

You should also have a CT scan of your sinuses.
