    LPR or Post Nasal Drip

    Had 2 bad coughs in a row late Jan/early Feb. Both the same, dry tickle irritating, non productive. Also a mildly sore throat.

    Since then it has never properly cleared, coughing on & off through the day, much worse evening/night. Throat isn't sore but it feels 'narrower', always aware of too much mucus, though my nasal passages aren't blocked.

    Doctor thought it might be a sinus problem & gave me a nasal spray, no effect. Double dose one given, no effect.

    Now we're looking at LPR. My symptoms are just the cough & excessive mucus in my throat, never any heartburn.

    So now I'm on Lansoprazole, 30mg per day in 1 dose. Also have an asthma inhaler because I've been having some harsh coughing fits, gagging & coughing out mucus when my throat seems to be on overload. So the inhaler is to help my lungs when that happens, "use as necessary", & just before I go to bed. I don't have asthma & no obvious allergies.

    Lying down makes everything worse, so have to use 2 pillows & as upright as possible, but usually cough myself to sleep. Oddly, I wake very early...ÖÖ..not coughing! I can lie quietly for a good couple of hours not coughing AT ALL! When I get up, the cycle starts again.

    Has anyone found anything that works, or any idea when the Lansoprazole might kick in, if at all!
