Sorry to hear about your allergies Andy. I for one suffer the occassional post-nasal problem during the spring.

This cough syrup is absolutely vile! It smells like MelaFix, and probably doesn't taste much better!
I wouldn't suggest making a taste comparison, but just to be sure....

In addition to what TankGirl recommends, I would suggest this for post-nasal drip. I fill an empty 24 oz. water bottle with distilled water, 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt, and 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda. I found that the sea salt works best for me. Table salt has too much of a salty taste. The sea salt grains are larger, so not as much of them make up 1/2 teaspoon, so you don't get the overwhelmingly salty taste at the back of your throat.

Shake that up and use as your saline rinse. I just pour a bit into my hand and sniff it up. I have way too much of a gag reflex to use the netti pot method. QTOFFER, you can also use this nasal saline therapy with your prescription nasal spray. I do the saline rinse and about 15-20 minutes later, I use my nasal spray. I also use the saline rinse about 5 times a day during the really bad allergy season.
