Throat Clearing

Since I started taking Symbicort inhaler, I have to constantly clear my throat. Nothing comes out; no mucos or anything.
Is there a relief for this condition?

make sure you are gargling with water after the inhaler, the powder may just be drying out your throat.

omg.  thanks for mentioning symbicort.  i started symbicort a while ago, and my throat clearing has gotten worse.  my doctor has put me on nexium to dry up things, but i stopped taking it - just felt i didnt need it at the time.  i may need to go back on the nexium or find out if the omnezaprole will work too.
