Even with chronic bronchitis, I wonder if my sinuses should drain so much, especially in the morning. Wonder if doctors are missing something?
I can feel pretty good, then a cough, then lots of coughing, thick mucus coughing up, then nose runs clear for quite a long time, use 7-8 tissues.
Anyone else have these ssues. Coughing then irritates and causes more SOB until things calm down.

I've discussed this issue with both my PCP and Pulmonary doctors. While it isn't an every day occurrence with me I keep Fluticasone Propionate (Flonase) and Guaifenesin (mucinex) on hand and use them as needed. Flonase, available either OTC or with a script takes care of my runny, drippy nose and the Mucinex thins out the mucus. I take them separately or together depending on whats happening and they work great for me.
When the doctors first suggested these I needed them every day, but within a week or so things improved and now I only need them a few times a month.

I have developed a chronic runny nose--I think from high flow O2 24/7.

I don't have a runny nose, but I have mucus and coughing due to chronic bronchitis. I've done some reading about goblet cells which, in my case, must be overly productive. Some of the articles speak to this. I would do some reading about goblet cells and mucus.

Thanks for the replies, I use Mucinex a couple times a day also, but not Flonase. Will check with doctor, I get it mostly in the morning and about dinner time.

I had the same basic conversation with my PCP last fall when the weather started cooling. He recomended I try montelukast this winter, I have and have to admit I can now sleep through the night without nasal mucus, can exercise daily without inhaler or talk without clearing my throat. It is an inexpensive RX, ADC also has, that was originally aimed at asthma patients but it does help me. Just another option for you all... Mike

I think Montelukast is also known as Singulair
