The best solution is to keep it from forming which would be by clearing the sinuses and stopping the PND by using a decongestant. Next would be some Mucinex or an expectorant cough syrup (one of the Robitussins) in order to cough up the drainage that remains.
Mucus in the back of the throat is horrible.
I get this a lot and have the same problem getting it up. Sometimes it feel like a band of elastic and yes it does affect your swallowing.
In my case I put it down to environmental, as I live in an extremely wet country.
Terlin you can try a decongestant like Titchou recommended, I use SUDAFED myself, it helps somewhat.
Honey and lemon may help and I agree try to keep your nasal passages clear.
Apart from that it may be a case of living with it like I do. I do know that when I go to a hot country mine gets better,
