I have the same problem. I spoke to a friend yesterday that has a bad case of COPD. He saw a Dr who gave him Symbicort. It worked wonders for him and guess what - a great side effect was that he got rid of mucus in the throat and no longer has to hack up like the rest of us. This has been working for him for over a month now. I will be seeing my Dr in a few days. I currently take Advair and Nasonex for my Asthma probleems. I intend to ask my Dr if I can trade those in for Symbicort at least for a little while to see if that works for me as well. Hope she agrees.and I hope it works for me as well. VeravinView Thread
