It seems to be bronchitis or a common cold. Treatment may not be needed. For symptomatic relief, many people turn to guaifenesin or dextromethorphan.
Well i've battled mucous flow in my throat for a long time- taking double doses og Mucinex 24/7. But to be honest AStelin nasal spray will be effective in drying up the mucous- in fact it may over do it! And last but not least when all else fails and u need immediate relief- a swig of 90 proof or better moonshine will stop it right away!
Where can you get guaifinesin.  Is it over the counter?
First, you should stop bad habits, such as smoking. For symptoms, you can take expectorants, such as ambroxol. It is important that you identify the causes, such as pharyngitis, bronchitis, pneumonia, bronchiectasis and so on.
What is bronchiectasis. Can it be cured? What are the symptoms?
Bronchiectasis is a condition in which damage to the airways causes them to widen and become flabby and scarred. The most common signs and symptoms include a daily cough that occurs over months or years, daily production of large amounts of sputum, shortness of breath and wheezing, chest pain, etc. There is no cure, but early diagnosis and treatment can prevent further damage to your lungs. People with bronchiectasis should have ongoing care and try to follow a healthy lifestyle.
