I am always clearing my throat and someimes deep coughing.

Resolved Question:

I am always clearing my throat and someimes deep coughing. My dad said it is excessive mucas production. I have tried many medications and my dad has paid for me to see an expensive private doctor who didn't solve the problem as all he suggested was a nasal spray. It is making me go mad and tiring me out. I have had the problem since before christmas 2014.

ever tried*

Anti allergic medications in other words

I'm not sure. Is that for hayfever?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

well, for many things including hay fever but not only hay fever.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

These medications are over-the-counter

Dr. Shahzad MD :

or GSL

Customer:

What do you reccomend?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I would recommend that you should try taking something like over-the-counter loratadine 10 mg once daily along with monetlucast sodium 10 mg at night to see if they help with your symptoms.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Loratadine is an antihistamine and montelucast is also an antiallergic but acts by a different mechanism.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

If these medications do not help then the final option may be surgery.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Montelukast sodium**

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Are you with me?

Customer:

Is that my final medication option?

Customer:

The doctor said my nose was slightly bent at the back

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Yes because you have used pretty much everything else.
