Discussions that mention claritin

Back Problems board

I found following the sneeze helped, not tensing up with it. I love sneezing but man, it was a difficult task after surgery. I suggest maybe trying a claritin as they dry the nasal passage and will stop that post nasal drip that makes you cough at night. The pillow is a great idea too. I don't like cough medicine so I take gel tabs, I am a wimp. The only thing you really can do is wait it out and be sure you are treating the symptoms you HAVE. Best of luck to you. I have been lucky to not have had a single cold since I quit smoking a month before surgery and I am nearing two years post op. Thank goodness. But, I got the flu, which I hadn't had in over 15 years :rolleyes:
hope you feel better soon
