Hi and thank you for your question. Do you have any allergies? Are you on any medications or supplements?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.


Yes I do have allergies all year long. I was taking Zytrec all year long but stopped taking it because I was no longer getting relief from my allergy symptoms. I currently take Aciphex 20mg once a day.

I would recommend you see an allergy specialist as it is very possible that your excessive mucus is caused by an allergy ( or allergies). A specialist is equipped to test you for various possible sensitivities which would help you tremendously in eliminating the cause. I hope this information helps you, if so, please click accept. I wish you the best! :-)
