Is there something that can be done about phlegm in my throat? It is bad in the morning-and sometimes even wakes me up during the night when sleeping. I don't have a problem during the day time, only when I lay down at night. I have tried sinus medication but it doesn't seem to help.

  • Believe it or not it may be sinus drainage. I know it sounds gross but after using a neti-pot and prescription nasal sprays my phlegm diminished.

  • Do you smoke? Morning phlegm is typical for chronic bronchitis.
