Do you have allergies or sinus congestion or take any medicines?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I don't have any allergies - I have sinus congestion at night when in bed. The medicines I am taking are Nexium plus Cozaar.

Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 3 years ago.
I think your sinus congestion is causing it. It is usually due to seasonal allergies

You probably have minor allergies you're not aware of

I recommend zyrtec at night.
