Post Nasal Drip and My COPD

Last updated: November 2022

I wake up in the morning with a lot of nasty sputum. I used my neb, but for a long time, I needed something more. I would hack and cough, and it seemed endless.

My nasal passages were dry, as was my mouth. I use a CPAP, but my nose ran like a firehouse. I had a lot of trouble breathing through my nose.

I started using a nasal syringe system, and my breathing improved immediately. I use a squeeze bottle, but you can use a neti pot or a navage nose cleaner.

Let me know if this helps you.
