Allergy medications have dominated the shelves in many pharmacies as a result of the increasing brands of antihistamines, nasal sprays and decongestants. Despite the plethora of remedies, both over the counter (OTC) and by prescription, many people continue to suffer from chronic nasal congestion and post-nasal drainage.
