How long have you had your symptoms?
Do you have a fever also?
What about sinus congestion (stuffy nose)?
Thanks for the reply back.
Sounds like you have a viral upper respiratory infection that might have turned bacterial.
Green/bloody mucus is highly suggestive of infection that might need to be treated with antibiotics or it might get much worse.
I don't know if you have any other medical problems but you probably need to be taking something like Mucinex. It contains guaifenesin which will help thin your mucus and make it easier to cough up. The Claritin is an antihistime and is making your mucus thicker and will make it more difficult to cough up. You also need to be drinking plenty of fluids to help facilitate the mucus removal.
You can also use a humidifier in the room that you spend most of your time in (such as your bed) and this will help with the stuffy chest and raw throat as it will help humidify the air.
If you are not feeling better in a couple more days or you begin to feel worse, you need to see your Dr for antibiotics for a quicker recovery.
