I had a cold or flu, at this point the only thing left is a post nasal drip, that seems to get stuck in the lower throat/nasal passage and it prevents sleep. I have seen doctors and I am taking Zyrtec, Flonase, ipratropium and neti pot. I have to get sleep. Would it make sense to go to a low allergen location over the weekend? Addtionallly, I had azelastine prescribes from my internal medicine doc but the net told me to use the iprtropium instead...your thoughts?

Thanks for the information.

From your description, it does not look like you are prone of allergy. Your symptoms could be the part of allergy or sinus infection which can present like this. I see that you are taking meds to control your allergy, but not really helping out. If the problem is not due to allergy, then going out of town would not be beneficial. Therefore, you have to pin point the cause of post nasal drip. I suggest you to get x-ray para-nasal sinus to see if there is anything significant in sinuses. In the mean time continue using your meds and use mask to prevent allergens getting into your system. As far as azelastine is concerned, it's very effective in treating allergic rhinitis which can present with post nasal drip. Therefore, you can go for it.

Can I use the Azeltime even with the Zyrtec, Flonase and Ipratropium Bromide?

You can drop Zyrtec since azelastine is also antihistamine and taking both together would cause side effects.

Take care,
