Hi, I first got post nasal mucous running into my throat after Eustachian tube dysfunctio. I also have rhinitis. I also take guaifenesin at night and I reiterate it's quite hard to identify the products with just guaifenesin. In the US I can get it in tablet form. You do need to take liquid with it and I take a drink before bed of orange or lemon juice, honey, hot water, and a pinch of cayenne pepper. It is good for colds too and stimulates mucous flow. I try to sleep sitting up a bit but find that hard. All the best!


@bride I will drink the solution you suggested . I did but never put cayenne pepper in my stomach wont accept hot stuff so will use a little and try it . I,ll try all suggestions to see what helps . I have guaifenesin so will do this tonight . Thanks


Maybe just omit the cayenne since it is very strong. The hot drink itself helps me. good luck!
