    I started taking this medicine two days ago after having been on two rounds of antibiotics and predinosone for sinusitis that didn't seem to help with runny nose. Instead of a bitter taste, I have experienced a very sweet like taste which is just as bad as a bitter taste. It has dried up most of the drippy nose and watery eyes, however it has caused me to be awakened in the middle of the night ... Show Full Comment

    This medicine has been great for my post nasal drip and constant cough. It really works. The downside is I have insomnia when using it and it taste terrible. Cannot use for extended periods of time as I have to sleep sometime. I stop taking it for about a week and lose the insomnia.

    I got this prescription for chronic post nasal drip as no other antihistamine worked for me. It gave me relief in less than half and hour! I did notice if I did too much of a squeeze I could taste it from the back of my throat, but it wasn't that bad, and a drink of water eliminated it. I do admit I haven't been consistent with it, so I can't really tell if it will lose it's effect ... Show Full Comment

    I suffer from persistent post nasal drip which has recently triggered uncontrollable coughing fits and runny eyes. No other treatment seemed to work until my doctor prescribed azelastine. The bitter taste is tolerable as a price for temporarily suspending my coughing spasms. Surely, there must be something that can rid me of this curse.
