I Am suffering with allergies right now.the post nasal drip is making me cough and its not pleasant Will taking regular cough medics help with this
Hello,

Welcome and thank you for your question. I am Dr.Mazumdar and I hope I'm able to help you with your medical problem today.

Both benadryl and Zyrtec will help in decreasing the postnasal drip since they both cause some amount of dryness of mouth as well as the throat.

But the best solution is to use a decongestant nasal spray or drop like Afrin.

Cough medicines which contain Guafenisin also help.

I hope this helps.
