Re: Too much mucus a problem or not?
Yes, excess mucus production stimulates the production of acid in your stomach and causes all sorts of side effects: nausea, heart burn, acid reflux, lack of hunger. It is important to eat small amounts throughout the day versus a few big meals.. this will help cut down on the nausea.
Look in to a decongestant. Is your prescription for a nasal spray like nasonex/flonase/nasacort? If so look into a perconalgesic(sp), actual spray name - Ipratropium Bromide. This spray works to shut down some of the sites which generate mucus in your nose.
